As the Women’s Conference continued on Wednesday, April 12, a variety of workshops and lectures were held throughout the day. The conference came to an end at 5 p.m. in the Union with speeches from friends of Moira A. Murphy, a former UTEP professor that passed away in 2013 and was a key component in creating the conference. To conclude the conference, a small breathing exercise and meditation session was held.
