Women’s History Month: The QVCC Community and the Women’s March – Reports and Reflections

Released March 8, 2017

The Cultural Programming Committee of Quinebaug Valley Community College, in collaboration with the Quinebaug Middle College, will host a panel discussion, offered at two different times, in observation of Women’s History Month: “The QVCC Community and the Women’s March 2017: Reports and Reflections.” The Women’s March was held on January 21, 2017, in Washington D.C. and cities across the country to advocate for women’s rights and related issues, including comprehensive healthcare, environmental justice, LGBTQ rights, and workplace justice.

Members of the QVCC community who participated in the march will discuss what motivated them personally to attend and to offer their impressions of the event and its consequences. Participants include Suzy Lefevre, a Quinebaug Middle College English teacher; M’lyn Hines, QVCC’s research librarian; Madison Cook-Hines, a University of Rhode Island sophomore studying wildlife biology; Jennifer Green, the executive assistant to the president of QVCC; and Emma Green, a sophomore at Woodstock Academy.

The event is free and open to the public. The panel will take place twice: on Friday March 24, 2017 at the main campus in Danielson, 742 Upper Maple Street, from 10:45 a.m. to 12:00 in Room 100/101; and at the QVCC Willimantic Center, Room 10 at 729 Main Street, Willimantic, from 4 to 5 p.m. on Wednesday March 29.
