BOG considers beauty conference

Sarah Mayer | Tuesday, February 24, 2009

Senior communications major Emma Farrell asked the Saint Mary’s Board of Governance (BOG) for a co-sponsorship to help sponsor a female beauty conference at their meeting this week.

The conference, in its second year, will be held in the Student Center later this spring.

Farrell said she hopes the conference will “deepen the understanding of what being a woman means while trying to resist what makes a woman seem to be.”
