Cuninggim Lecture on Women in Culture and Society
About the Lecture Series
Every spring, the Women’s Center hosts the annual Cuninggim Lecture on Women in Culture and Society. Started in 1986, this endowed lecture series features experts from around campus and around the world. Recent keynote speakers have included Jessica Valenti, author of The Purity Myth, and Daisy Hernandez, editor of Colorlines. It was named for Margaret Cuninggim, for whom the Margaret Cuninggim Women’s Center is also named.
As part of the Cuninggim Lecture, the Women’s Center presents the annual Mentoring Award and Mary Jane Werthan Award to honor individuals making a difference for women on campus.
