SU Celebrates Women's History Month With 'Roller Girls' Event

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md. - Salisbury University celebrated Women's History Month on Wednesday night through roller skates.

The school invited the Salisbury Roller Girls to put on a demonstration of what an all female, full contact, flat-track roller derby scrimmage looks like. Organizers say the event goes perfectly with this month's theme of celebrating women of courage, character, and commitment.

"We just want to empower women to do things that are brave and things women wouldn't necessarily do," says Chrys Egan, a co-chair of Women's History Month at Salisbury University. "This is a great group of women, there are mothers' and daughters' all ages, just a great mix of people doing something amazing."

The event also included a speech from the Roller Girls founder and athletic director, Eva Paxton.

The team is currently out of season, but to view their upcoming games, just head over to their website.
