Faculty to discuss women’s roles – from leaders to counselors to prisoners

Three faculty members will discuss women as leaders, women’s emotional health and women in prison at the UNT Speaks Out panel March 13 in honor of National Women’s History Month.

The free event, sponsored by the UNT Libraries, will begin at 6 p.m. March 13 in the Willis Library, Forum.

Beverly BowerThe panelists for UNT Speaks Out: Women in the 21st Century include:

  • Beverly Bower, right, professor of higher education, will speak on women as leaders. She is director Bill J. Priest Center for Community College Education.
  • Cynthia Chandler, professor of counseling, will discuss the emotional health of women. She serves as director of the Center for Animal Assisted Therapy and is a licensed marriage and family therapist.
  • Suzanne Enck, assistant professor of Communication Studies, will speak about women in the prison system. She works with a Dallas-based prisoner advocacy group, Resolana, and is currently interviewing prisoners and ex-inmates who have benefitted from Resolana’s mission to educate and empower female inmates in the Dallas County Jail.

In 1987, after being petitioned by the National Women’s History Project, Congress passed legislation that designated the month of March 1987 as “Women’s History Month." Between 1988 and 1994, Congress passed additional resolutions requesting and authorizing the president to proclaim March of each year as Women’s History Month. Since 1995, Presidents Clinton, Bush and Obama have issued a series of annual proclamations designating the month of March as “Women’s History Month.”

The next UNT Speaks Out panel discussion will be April 24.
