Women’s Studies pioneer to speak at Sac State

Professor emeritus Sally Roesch Wagner, who was instrumental in establishing California State University, Sacramento’s Women’s Studies program at the height of the women’s rights movement in 1978, will return to campus as a headliner in the Women’s HERstory Month celebration.

She will speak at 2 p.m. Wednesday, March 19, at the University Union, Hinde Auditorium.

“Dr. Wagner will talk about her efforts and those of others on campus, related to the women’s and the antiwar movements during that period of social change in the 1960s and ’70s,” said Women’s Resource Center coordinator Chris Kent. The Women’s Resource Center and Associated Students Inc. are co-sponsoring Wagner’s appearance.

Sac State was the first state-supported university in the United States to offer a minor in women’s studies, said Julie Thomas, the special collections and manuscripts librarian who is curating an exhibit to coincide with Wagner’s talk.

“Sisterhood is Powerful! Women’s Activism at Sacramento State in the Era of Second-Wave Feminism” runs through Saturday, May 31, on the University Library mezzanine.

“The exhibit celebrates the legacy of the faculty, staff and students at Sacramento State whose belief in the tenets of the women’s movement and tireless efforts brought about a radical change on our campus and academia on a national level,” said Thomas.

The exhibit will cover the beginnings and evolution of women’s studies at Sac State, women’s reproductive health, raising the awareness of women’s issues on campus and a look at some notable activists who lectured at Sac State, including Betty Friedan, Gloria Steinem and Robin Morgan.

Two more events are planned for Women’s HERstory Month:

Ultimate Derby Radness: 7:30 p.m. Thursday, March 13, at the University Union Ballroom. Thrill to the excitement of flat-track roller derby featuring the all-female Sac City Rollers. Sponsored by KSSU.com and UNIQUE Programs.

“Girl Rising:” noon Wednesday, March 19, in the University Union, Redwood Room. Attend a screening of the 2013 documentary about the power of education in the lives of nine girls who faced difficult personal obstacles. Sponsored by UNIQUE Programs.

All Women’s HERstory events are free and open to the public.
