Universities nationwide to host ‘Womxn’s History Month’ events
Many universities nationwide are no longer celebrating “women” for March’s “Women’s History Month.” Now they’re celebrating “womxn.”
Campuses have scheduled a variety of “Womxn’s History Month” activities for the coming weeks to be inclusive to transgender women — or biological men who identify as women.
Gone are the days when Women’s History Month exclusively celebrated those born with an XX pair of sex chromosomes and all that comes with it.
This month, Northwest Missouri State University will commemorate “Womxn History Month” with poets, a film screening and a wellness session. University of Wisconsin Oshkosh is slated to host a “Womxn Leading UWO Conference.”
“The term ‘womxn’ is used as an objection to the patriarchal idea that womxn are an extension to men and the inclusion of all womxn go beyond just cis-women,” notes CSUSB’s website.
Rider University, in plugging its “Womxn’s History Month” programming, explains on its website that spelling it “womxn is used to respect the dynamic and fluid nature of gender identity and expression and to be inclusive of all people who identify as women.”
The New Jersey university is scheduled to host, among other events, a presentation that “interrogates Black womxn’s existence in R&B and Hip Hop music” and a reception honoring “womxn student athletes.”
Even California Lutheran University, whose students represent a wide variety of faiths, is getting in on the action. It will throw a “Womxn’s History Month Luncheon” on March 29.
