What can I do to celebrate/commemorate this day?

      We will celebrate Women's Equality Day with an online "Tweet Chat"
       2:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. (CDT)
    • What is a "tweet chat"? - A tweetchat is an event where members of the community who participate with social media come together to meet. The goal of this Tweetchat is to promote the awareness of Women's Equality Day while discussing your question(s) and thoughts around What/Who/How are women equal to? Members of the Women's & Gender Studies will moderate the event from the office of Women's Studies located in DOAK Hall RM 123. If you are on campus you are welcome to join us but it is not necessary.
    • How can I participate? - You will need your favorite electronic device that provides you the means to communicate electronically (examples: phone with Twitter application, computer with access to the internet, or other device that provides you access to the internet). If you do not have a twitter account, signing up is easy and quick. Go to https://twitter.com/ and create your account.
    • Search for @TTUWGS and "follow" us. Useful links to news and information about gender equity are welcome. You can also use the quiz below as a starting point for what kind of "tweets" you can contribute to the conversation. When "tweeting" your comments please include the hashtag #WED2018 as we will be tracking the discuss for a future blog post. If you have questions before the event, feel free to "tweet us" anytime.
    • Do I need to show up somewhere? - No. You can participate from anywhere but if you would like to meet other members of the Women's & Gender Studies we will moderate the event from the office of Women's Studies located in DOAK Hall RM 123.
