Meet, Eat and Learn focuses on women's history


International Women's History Month, "Meet, Eat, and Learn," is Wednesday, March 7, from noon to 1 p.m. at the International Centre, 2908 University Ave. WOMANSPEAK is a play about the lost history of American women. A contemporary woman is in search of her roots. Out of the past, Abigail Adams, Sojourner Truth, Susan B. Anthony, Margaret Sanger, Eleanor Roosevelt and others show her that she is part of a great tradition of women who contributed to our history. This will be performed by UND students. Winners of the Women Studies' Essay Contest graduate and undergraduate divisions will be awarded. Also, the second annual Louise Ebberwein Memorial Scholarship will be awarded to Brandy Gervais and Robin Boe. This scholarship has been given to students who have successfully completed Intro to the Study of Women, are single-mothers, and contribute to their communities. Louise Ebberwein was a Grand Forks woman who was a mother, wife who volunteered for a number of causes related to both health and the arts. Shortly after passing away, friends of Louise established this scholarship in her name. Lunch will be provided.
