Women’s History Month / International Women’s Day (Mar. 8th) – spotlight

There’s hardly a better way to celebrate Women’s History Month than celebrating the grass-roots organizers and partners across the nation for their efforts that helped get the Senate version of the Violence Against Women Act re-authorized [link to CNN story]!

But there’s plenty more.

This month, PBS is running a series called Makers: Women Who Make America; check your local listings, or watch episodes online.

Or, check out Beyond the Box’s series Women & Girls Lead Us Into Women’s History Month.

And not last nor least, if you haven’t, visit the Half the Sky movement; check out the book, or watch the film online (scroll down toward bottom of page) [warning: while incredibly insightful, it’s difficult to watch in one sitting; powerful stories of women who have lived through unimaginable violence].


Here at WCASA, we have both the book and DVD of Half the Sky, available to be borrowed by members.
