Essay & Art Contest

From access to education to the empowerment found in education, women's
history is inextricably linked to the education of women. In
collaboration with the National Women's History Project and in an effort
to facilitate understanding and appreciation of the contributions women
of all racial, ethnic, religious, and cultural backgrounds have made to
history, the Office for Women's Affairs encourages reflection on the
theme: "Women's Education, Women's Empowerment" and invites IU students
and staff, men and women, to address, through essays or other arts,
topics pertaining to
the education movements in the world and to the way access to education
as well as trends in education have shaped women's history. For the
