In the late 1990s, Dr. Laura Musselwhite organized a panel discussion featuring four faculty members discussing various issues related to Women’s History. A few years later, she partnered with Dr. Carla Patterson to host a single event on the Floyd campus that gave students, staff and faculty a chance to present on Women’s History-related topics of their choice. By the following year, the celebration had expanded to include events at every GHC campus and instructional site. Now, thanks to the help of many departments and individuals across the college, our Women’s History Month celebrations are too large to be contained in a single month.
