Making Waves: A History of Women’s Rowing in Seattle

This event has passed.

As early as 1903, women students at the University of Washington were rowing in the “same boats” and “under the same conditions” as men, despite facing opposition to the idea of women competing in the strenuous sport. Join Olympian Anna Cummins and UW rower Melanie Barstow for a discussion on the history and tradition of the Women’s Rowing program at the University of Washington.

This panel is moderated by rowing historian Eric Cohen. Come early to see Pulling Together: A Brief History of Rowing in Seattle which will be open before the program, from 6-7pm.

ASL Interpretation and CART captioning are available during the program. In addition, a limited number of Assistive Listening Devices are available upon request. For more accessibility support, email two weeks before the program.
