Little girls are invited to "Toss the Tiara: An Alternative Dress-up and Role Model Day for 3-6 Year Olds" when Bowling Green State University kicks off Women's History Month from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday in Room 308 of the Bowen-Thompson Student Union. The costumes are from careers in which women are underrepresented, such as farming and aviation.
Boys are also welcome to attend the program, which is free and open to the public.
"Girl Culture" is the theme of the university's celebration this year, with programs that explore the meaning of girlhood and the experiences of contemporary girls in the U.S.
Another event later in the month will be of special interest to "tweens" and teens.º
Keynote speaker Madison Kimrey, a 12-year-old political activist and suffragette, will present "Only Six Years until I'm an Adult: My Life as a Pre-Teen Activist," at 7 p.m. March 24 in Room 206 at the Union. Madison has worked to restore voter pre-registration for 16- and 17-year-olds in her home state of North Carolina.
For more information about other programs scheduled for March, see Friday's Lifestyles page in the Sentinel-Tribune.

A 20-year veteran of the Hi Society Baton Corps has brought the group to Bowling Green.
Any interested twirlers are welcome to join the group, which meets on Thursdays at 5 p.m. at First United Methodist Church on East Wooster Street.
"We pride ourselves on providing an activity that not only do kids enjoy, but the whole family can be involved in and that we have mastered a balance between 'baton life' and 'home life,'" said head coach and alumnae Tabitha Kirsch.
Currently the Bowling Green Division is 13 members, but the entire group, which includes Fremont, Clyde and Bellevue, is over 100 members. Ages range from 4-16 and they have members from the Bowling Green, Elmwood, Perrysburg, and other school districts.
Hi Society Baton participate in parades and performances, and competes in competitions. They have many state and national titles over the past 40 years.
The group has been marching in the Bowling Green Holiday Parade for two years and this past year won Best Live Performance.
The twirler have also performed at the Statue of Liberty, marched in parades in Hawaii and Canada multiple times, and performed in California and Florida. This year, Hi Society will March in the Miss America Parade 2014 in Atlantic City in September.
There are also plans to be the first and only baton group in history to ever perform during the opening ceremony of the Daytona 500 in February 2015, Kirsch said.
