Women’s History Month pop-up gallery goes on display in the Union this week


The Union Program Council is hosting a pop-up gallery in the Student Union in celebration of Women’s History Month, a month dedicated to commemorating and empowering women and their contributions to American history.

The pop-up gallery, planned and designed by UPC’s multicultural committee, features photos and biographies of famous women from both America’s past and present, along with details of their lives and success.

Some of the women featured in the gallery include former first lady Michelle Obama, talk show host Ellen DeGeneres and activist Tarana Burke, founder of the #MeToo movement.

Women from Kansas State University and the Manhattan community were also encouraged to submit their own short personal story and photograph to be on display in the gallery.

Since 1988, Women’s History Month has been observed in the United States each year in March.

The pop-up gallery is on display through Friday, March 29 in the Union from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
