Take your daughters to work April 27

Take your daughters to work April 27

On "Take Our Daughters to Work Day," millions of caring adults across the country will take a girl to work to encourage her educational development during adolescence.

Join in the fun and take your daughter -- or your friend's daughter -- to work on April 27.

Take Our Daughters To Work Day was founded in 1993 by the Ms. Foundation for Women after research found adolescent girls often receive less attention than boys in school, suffer from lower expectations and often tend to dislike themselves based on physical appearance. The foundation launched the public education program to encourage adults to help girls grow up with confidence and good health and be ready to fulfill their dreams.

University and community participants are invited to attend a "Happy Hour" to celebrate participants in this semester's Young Women Leaders Program from 2-4 p.m. in Newcomb Hall, South Meeting Room.

For information, call the Women's Center at 982-2361.
