Women's History Month Events Slated

Women's History Month at California State University, Sacramento will kick off with a "Women of Color" gala at 6 p.m., Wednesday, March 1 in the University Union Redwood Room.

Events later in the month include a lecture by former Center High School teacher Dana Rivers. Rivers' talk, "Her Transgender Journey," will be at noon, Thursday, March 30 in the University Union Ballroom. Rivers, formerly known as David Warfield, garnered national headlines when she left her teaching job after announcing she would have a sex change operation. The controversy ended in a settlement between Rivers and the Center Unified School Board.

Other lectures throughout March will address women's health programs, child custody and women and leadership.

Also throughout March, the Multi-Cultural Center in the University Library will present "Who Holds the Mirror," a traveling exhibit that depicts the lives of those touched by breast cancer.

On Wednesday, March 8, Sacramento Taiko Dan drummers and Sacramento Black Art of Dance will perform during an International Women's Day presentation at noon in the University Union Redwood Room.

The 15th annual Student Health Center Health Fair, scheduled for 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Tuesday, March 28, will focus on women's health issues. Representatives from Women Escaping a Violent Environment (WEAVE) and the CSUS Suzanne A. Snively Student Health Center will give presentations.
