Women’s History Month traces its origins back to the first Women’s Day March in 1909, organized by socialist women in New York City to amplify the call for women’s rights and to honor the memory of the city’s garment workers’ strikes.  Two years later, the International Conference of Socialist Women established International Women’s Day, now celebrated in over 80 countries worldwide.  It has become an annual day of radical activism for women’s rights and against war.  In the United States, the day has expanded into Women’s History Week (1980) and eventually into Women’s History Month (1987).

Come join us to hear a roster of PMN singer/songwriters and poets share their vision for peace, justice, and equality in 2024!
