The Emily Taylor Center for Women & Gender Equity at the University of Kansas will host a number of virtual events during the lunch hour and in the evening throughout March, which is Women’s History Month.

At noon Tuesday, Dr. Precious Porras, assistant vice provost for student affairs at KU, will read from “Passing,” by Nella Larsen, live on the center’s Instagram page. That event is part of The Free Black Women’s Library 2021 Reading Challenge, which sets a goal of reading 25 books by Black women or Black nonbinary authors by Dec. 31.

Porras was recently selected to be the chief diversity officer for Dominican University in River Forest, Illinois, and her last day with KU will be March 19.

At 6 p.m. Tuesday, Dr. Kristen R. Ghodsee, author of “Why Women Have Better Sex Under Socialism,” will speak on the socialist history of International Women’s Day, which was Monday. Registration for the event, to be held via Zoom, is available on this form.

Here’s the full flyer of events. You can zoom in and out using the + and – in the toolbar.
