"Girl Culture" is the theme of Bowling Green State University's 2014 Women's History Month celebration, with programs that explore the meaning of girlhood and the experiences of contemporary girls in the U.S.
The month kicks off Saturday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in 308 Bowen-Thompson Student Union, with the children's event "Toss the Tiara: An Alternative Dress-up and Role Model Day for 3-6 Year Olds." The costumes are from careers in which women are underrepresented, such as farming and aviation.
The program is free and open to the public.
A month's worth of events that appeal to girls and women of all ages, and those who care about them, are planned by the BGSU Women's Center and the Women's, Gender and Sexuality Studies Program in partnership with 15 co-sponsoring organizations on and off campus. All the programs are free of charge.
The keynote event is a March 28 talk on "Risk and Responsibility: Naming and Disrupting the Inequalities in Girls' Lives," with sociologist Dr. Lorena Garcia of the University of Illinois at Chicago. Garcia studies youth and the roles of gender, sexuality, race, social class and ethnicity in their lives. Her 2013 book "Respect Yourself, Protect Yourself" won the American Sociological Association Distinguished Book Award in the Race, Gender and Class section.

Six members of the Middleton Township Homemakers met Feb. 3 at the home of Marian Frobose.
President Betty Wenig led a brief business meeting.  Members discussed future meeting plans.
Dee Robison showed how to make a wall grouping for the home. The women used coordinating printed scrapbooking paper to make the decorations. The decorations were varying circular sizes, which had a fanned effect.
Frobose served Valentine refreshments, which consisted of a chocolate and mint heart-shaped cake and chocolate chip mint ice cream.
The next meeting will be March 3rd at Ben Franklin's in Bowling Green at 7 p.m.  A Ben Franklin representative will show members how to make a decorative wreath for their homes.  Then the group will head for Lola's Frozen Yogurt for dessert.  Lola's is located on South Main in Bowling Green.
