Women's History Month

This week, several of our clubs and organizations collaborated to celebrate Women's History Month. Members of the PHS Amnesty International, French, and Multicultural Clubs met to learn about women's suffrage, with a particular focus on the women's rights protests in Iran. I was delighted to be invited to participate in this discussion, which included a student-driven Google Slide presentation about the history of injustice perpetrated upon these women and the brave protests occurring throughout the Middle East, including social media trends. Club members then made posters, which adorn our main lobby and atrium, and invited students and staff to sign petitions to end gender apartheid in Iran and Afghanistan and to petition the United Nations to investigate human rights violations in Iran. We are grateful to these students and staff members for bringing some of these worldwide injustices to the forefront.
