University of Wisconsin-Madison librarian Emilie Songolo and AFRICaide are hosting an International Women’s Day event March 7th at Christ Presbyterian Church from 11:00-4:00 p.m.
The purpose of the even is to bring together women of all backgrounds to celebrate International Women’s Day. The theme this year is “Make It Happen!” Many people, organizations and institutions have been engaged in improving the lives of women locally, nationally, and internationally. They work in areas such as economic development, community development, education, health, science and technology, politics and government, the arts, and women’s empowerment. We would like to come together to celebrate their work, encourage others, and plan ways for improving the lives of women all over the world. We will also make items to donate to local communities.
