Event Description
Oral historians Sherrie Tucker and Tami Albin will interview women who were inside and outside the occupied building on the KU campus on February 4, 1972. The February Sisters’ activism led to the establishment of the Department of Women, Gender and Sexuality Studies and Hilltop Child Development Center, among other breakthroughs for women on campus. Reception follows in the Central Court.
