This month highlights the contributions made by women to every facet of society. We celebrate women's collective and individual strengths with speakers, panels, entertainment, films and get-togethers throughout the month. As we clarify the roles of women in our country and throughout the world, we are inspired to set goals for the future.

March 8, 2016-Blue Yonder: A Play Celebrating Women's History Month
Place: Memorial Union River Valley Room
A familiar adage states, “Men may work from sun to sun, but women’s work is never done.” In Blue Yonder, the audience meets twelve mesmerizing and eccentric women. Among them are a flight instructor, a firefighter, a stuntwoman, a woman who donates body parts, an employment counselor, a professional softball player, a surgical nurse, professional baseball player, and a daredevil who plays with dynamite. Through the monologues, each woman examines her life’s work and explores the career that she has found…or has found her.
This play will take place Tuesday, March 8 at 7:00 pm in the UND Memorial Union River Valley Room. Presented by the Greater Grand Forks Community Theatre, Blue Yonder was written by Kate Aspengren and sponsored by the UND Women’s Center.
