Did you know: "On March 8, 1857, thousands of working women marched through the streets of New York City demanding an end to sweat-shop conditions, improved childcare facilities, equal pay for equal work, and the right to vote. In 1910 at the International Conference of Women Socialists, Clara Zetkins proposed that March 8th be observed as International Working Women’s Day in honor of the New York March. Since that time, International Women’s Day has been celebrated around the globe." Guess what?  It's March 8 again!  That means more than springing ahead (you did reset your clocks, right???).  It means there's an awesome festival in town that I'm thrilled to be a part of.  Come see me (and SOOO much more) today: When:Sunday, March 8th, 2009 Where:Portland State University Smith Center (1825 SW Broadway) Time:10:00 am – 4:00 pm Cost:Free and donations are welcomed (thanks to Tessa Hulls and PIWD 2009 for the beautiful art and quoted text, respectively, in this post.) ***Song of the moment The Most Dangerous Woman, by Ani Difranco & Utah Phillips***
