FLORENCE, AL - The Women of Action Speaker Series on the University of North Alabama campus is set to launch Feb. 17. The series is sponsored by Community Service and Outreach, the Mitchell-West Center for Social Inclusion, and the Center for Women's Studies.

"This group of women is equally as talented and have contributed a great deal to the success of our community."
