NYUWomxn100 celebrates the lives, pursuits, innovations, and achievements of womxn of transgender, non-binary, and cisgender experiences. We honor womxn who have been historically overlooked in their pursuits, innovations, and accomplishments across our global communities.

2020 marks 100 years since the U.S. ratified the 19th amendment, though not all women gained access to their vote. The global legacies of women forging justice and gender equality are rich, and still in motion. NYU takes this moment to revisit our pasts as we innovate our collective futures.

NYUWomxn100 events will recognize the often unseen and unacknowledged efforts of womxn, particularly those of historically and contemporary marginalized backgrounds. Join us for year-long programming, events, and exhibits.
