Kistler Notes

Women's Herstory Month

by Elisabeth Davis on 2022-03-01T09:40:47-05:00 in Women & Gender Studies, About Library Research | Comments

At Rosemont, every day celebrates women's herstory.  Our chapel contains images of only female saints. The Centennial Celebration has highlighted the hard work and determination of women throughout Rosemont's 100 year history. 

Here at the Kistler Library, we are dedicated to celebrating herstory. At our archives, you can find so many fascinating herstories, such as the Society of the Holy Child Jesus, who founded Rosemont, to the women who served as Rosemont's President to the women who graduated from here, such as Yvonne Chism-Peace.  And, we cannot discount the herstory of student life at Rosemont, including Student Activism During WWII and Holiday Traditions

We also emphasize and celebrate the diversity of herstory around the world.  We have a library guide on women's history. We also have an evolving exhibit of spotlight books. Here are just a few:
