Sisterhood of the Traveling Scarf

February 15 - April 1

Similar to the novel and movie, Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, eight scarves are connecting 87 University of Dayton women on a journey to find the common fabric that connects us all. Each woman spends a day with the scarf and reflects on her experience before sharing the scarf with another woman, who then has a chance to do the same. You can follow the journey of the traveling scarf by visiting the Women's Center blog, Voices Raised.

Hijabi Monologues

Tuesday & Wednesday, March 8 & 9 - White Box Theatre, ArtStreet
