 MSU Women of History Event

An announcement from MSU College of Education, Health & Human Development:

Historian Dr. Robert Rydell Interviews Dr. Ellen Kriegbaum, who was one of 5 women who sued the MT Board of Regents and the MT University System for equal pay and promotion for women.

Tuesday, May 21, 5:30-7pm

MSU SUB Ballroom B

Followed by a “Where Are We Now?” discussion led by Professor of History & Philosophy, Dr. Kristen Intemann

Dr. Rydell will interview Dr. Ellen Kreigbaum, professor of Biomechanics, the first Director of the MSU Women’s Athletics and one of 125 women honored by MSU and President Cruzado during MSU’s 125th Anniversary celebration.

In 1976, Dr. Kreigbaum and four other plaintiffs, won a lawsuit against MT State and the Board of Regents for discriminating “against women by underutilizing women in certain departments, and by applying inequitable standards regarding salary, promotion, tenure and appointment of women to prominent university committees.”

Dr. Intemann will discuss a range of issues still confronting women in academia such as inclusivity/climate, pay, harassment, retribution, implicit discrimination, microaggressions, and work/life challenges

This event is FREE and is open to the public.

Refreshments will be served.
