This year, Women's History Month arrived one year into a global pandemic, an event that studies have shown disproportionately affected women. Women were more vulnerable to workplace disruptions, more likely to carry a heavy mental load, and more subjected to work loss. Despite this, female faculty, staff, and students at the University of Tennessee have persevered. To mark Women's History Month 2021, ORE is looking back at the past year and celebrating the pioneering efforts of women in UT's research enterprise.
