For Women’s History Month, Betances STEM Magnet School Hosts ‘We Fight for Roses, Too’ Exhibit

March is Women’s History Month. Betances STEM Magnet School hosted the We Fight for Roses, Too exhibit from the CT Women’s Hall of Fame Museum in New Haven. The exhibit is dedicated to the stories, struggles, and achievements of their Inductees, women who have shaped the culture and society of Connecticut and the nation. Rather than focus solely on the photographs of each of the inductees, this exhibit showcases images that highlight the struggle of each woman’s actions as a means of further reminding audiences that the quest for women’s equality has not been an easy battle.

BSTEM had the exhibit’s  20 panels arranged around the school. The Inductees’ stories are arranged by theme: Civil Liberties, Creative Expression, Economic Opportunity, Equal Access to Education, Health Reform and Suffrage & Civic Engagement. Families, staff, and students were able to take the time and read about women in Connecticut and the change they created.

In the photo above, students stand in front of the story they advocate.

In other BSTEM News, the school and their Program Assistant, Curtis Porter III were featured in the spring newsletter for the I-84 Project Hartford.
