The 2011 Flagler College Women’s History Project is a month long commemoration honoring women and the influence they have had and continue to have in American history. Comprised of 20 events, each open to the public, Flagler College will explore the impact and contributions of women in film, music, education, athletics, literature, and in times of war. We are proud to present the following featured speakers:
