The Ambitious Women’s Society made it clear that girls run the world and the bingo table. Last Tuesday night, the AWS hosted a bingo night centered around Women’s History Month. 

The event was filled with music, snacks and, of course, lots of bingo. 

Each bingo card featured different women throughout history like Michelle Obama, Anne Frank and Frida Kahlo along with some lesser-known figures like Chien-Shieng Wu, Marie Curie and Malala Yousafzai. Each player had fun playing bingo while they learned about influential women in history.

Freshman kinesiology major Michayla Myles enjoyed the aspect of including women on the cards. 

“On the bingo cards we had women of history that some people might not know about, and so they told us who they were and why they were very important,” Myles said.

AWS President Niya Flugence said that it was important to AWS to host an event that supports Women’s History Month. 

“We were talking about it amongst our officers and we decided that a bingo night would be good to educate people on women in our history and to also have fun while winning prizes,” Flugent said.

The prizes that bingo winners could choose from included a chocolate bar and flowers, a massage ball and a scrunchie set with a cup and a $15 Walmart gift card. 

Freshman accounting major Czariah Rhine said the event went great because it was planned by women for women. 

The Ambitious Women’s Society did a great job hosting the event. You left the event not only having just had a fun bingo night, but also with some more knowledge about women and a few more friends.  

“I feel like this was a good event to support women’s history month because it was an event created by an all-women’s group and women were here to support,” Rhine said. 

Flugence said the event was a great success and AWS will be doing more events like this in the future.
