IWU's Chapel Hour to Present Discussion in Honor of Women's History Month

March 8, 2006

BLOOMINGTON, Ill. - Illinois Wesleyan's University Chapel Hour and Special Events and Services will present a panel discussion based on the book Segregated Sisterhood by Nancy Caraway.  The event, in honor of Women's History Month, will be held on Wednesday, March 15, at 11 a.m. in Evelyn Chapel (1301 N. Park St., Bloomington).

The service, which is co-sponsored by the Women's Studies Program, is free and open to the public.

The panelists, who will discuss what sisterhood means to them, will include Sammie Robinson, assistant professor of business administration; Sobiera LaTorre, assistant professor of hispanic studies; and Meredith Kruse, visiting instructor in sociology.  The goal of the panel, according to Venus Evans-Winters, assistant professor of educational studies and event coordinator, will be "to learn how to build bridges across differences."
