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.¬∫
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.
