Please a few moments to complete the Sisterhood Dinner feedback form:

The Sisterhood Dinner celebrates the contributions and accomplishments of NC State women. It was originally called the Susan B. Anthony Dinner but was changed in 1999 to the Sisterhood Dinner to encompass all aspects of the achievements of women.

Writing the Next Chapter

Anniversaries provide us with an opportunity to reflect on the past and also think about the future. As we celebrate past accomplishments and progress in the struggle for gender equity on campus and across the state and nation, we must also acknowledge how feminist movements have been exclusionary and may have failed to operate in a manner that affirms everyone.   This year’s 35th annual Sisterhood Dinner theme is Writing the Next ChapterThe evening will offer an opportunity to engage in a discourse aimed to explore what the future of gender equity looks like on our campus, what Sisterhood truly means, and how we each play a role in authoring our next chapter.
