Though attendance for Westminster College's second annual Women's Conference is targeted at students and staff, coordinator Cinnamon Brown hopes the event sends a positive message to the Callaway community.
"I love that we have Women's History Month (in March), but I feel like it shouldn't just be a month," said Brown. "It's the same with Black History Month ... we should do this all year round."
Brown hopes that through celebrating women's contributions to history through song, poetry, dance and research presentations, they will eventually accomplish just that. This year's conference will begin with dinner at 5:15 p.m. and a program at 5:45 Thursday at the Mueller Activity Center.
The event began last year with a brief planning period and a shoestring budget after a discussion between Brown and the school's Fulbright-Robertson Fellow at the time, Amy Blakeway.
