Beginning Monday, August 6, through Sunday, August 12, the David O. McKay Center for Intercultural Understanding is hosting a project comprised of activities and events supporting and celebrating womanhood. The purpose of the project is to drive understanding, peace, and the general well being of women to students and members of the broader community. It will also give the opportunity for wholesome social interaction between women from diverse backgrounds.
Kaylee Huchendorf, project leader for the women’s week, is a junior in Intercultural Communications Studies from Idaho. As one of the students who put the activity together, she said she has “a deep belief in the power of women in creating peace at home, in their community, and in the world.” She hopes that through the project, women on campus and in the community might be empowered and strengthened.
