The program “The First Women’s Recording Company: Forty Years Strong” is scheduled for 4 p.m. Tuesday (March 26) in the Union’s Christie Theatre. Join UW-Green Bay Prof. Catherine Henze and co-presenter Chris Larson as they discuss Olivia Records.

Tradeoffs: A Conversation on Work and Family
Women’s History Month events continue Wednesday (March 27), again at 4 p.m. in the Union’s Christie Theatre. Join Dr. Alison Staudinger for a discussion on primary responsibility for care labor and waged work that goes beyond professional women and engages those who, by virtue of their class, immigration or other status have always had to work outside the home.
Film: ‘Daisy Bates, The First Lady of Little Rock’
The Christie Theatre will be the site of another Women’s History Month special event at 5 p.m. Thursday (March 28). The film ‘Daisy Bates, The First Lady of Little Rock’ will focus attention on a woman who became a household name in 1957 in her assistance of the nine black students who fought for the right to attend the all-white Central High School in Little Rock, Arkansas. Prof. Vince Lowery will lead a discussion after the film.
