In celebration of Women's History Month, Winston-Salem State University, Salem College and Wake Forest are presenting events March 29 and 30 on women's contributions to the Civil Rights Movement as they relate to "Hands on the Freedom Plow," a book published in 2010 featuring personal accounts of women involved with the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC).

Each year around the world, International Women's Day is celebrated on March 8, and events occur throughout college campuses to mark the economic, political and social achievements of women.
