Mount Saint Mary's hosts a day of film screenings as part of the United State of Women summit.

May 6, 2018

On May 6, Mount Saint Mary's University offered another on-campus opportunity for students, faculty and staff -- and the general public -- to get involved in the advancement of women.  

The 2018 United State of Women Summit convened in Los Angeles on May 5-6, and Mount Saint Mary’s was a community partner of this empowering gathering. The event brought together women and allies from across the country who know their energy and power will break down barriers that stand between women and full equality.
