Molly Murphy MacGregor to Kick Off Florissant Valley's 2010 Women’s History Month Celebration 

February 17, 2010

Molly Murphy MacGregor

Throughout the month of March, several events commemorating Women’s History Month will be held on the Florissant Valley campus at 3400 Pershall Road.

Molly Murphy MacGregor, executive director and co-founder of the National Women’s History Project, will be the keynote speaker for the kick off celebration at 9:30 a.m., Monday, March 1, in the Terry M. Fischer Theatre. Dr. Marcia Pfeiffer, president of STLCC-Florissant Valley will provide the introduction.

Molly Murphy MacGregor believes that knowing the importance of women’s historic achievements creates a larger, more expansive vision of what is possible. In 1980, she co-founded the National Women’s History Project (NWHP), which spearheaded the movement for what has become National Women’s History Month. MacGregor has served as the executive director of the NWHP for the past 28 years. During that time, she has worked with leaders of national women’s organizations to encourage them to celebrate their own organizations’ history as well as to build coalitions to develop programs and events that celebrate the vast array of women’s historic achievements. She has worked with school districts throughout the country to train teachers in ways to integrate a multicultural women’s history perspective into the school curriculum.

MacGregor has given keynote addresses at the National Education Association, Business and Professional Women, National Council of Social Studies, National Association of Multicultural Education conventions as well as many state and local conferences.

This event is free and open to the public. Check out our full list of Women’s History Month events at Florissant Valley.
