International Women’s Day

Here at HBW we are using Women’s History Month to look at the contributions of women of color here in Kansas and throughout the country. We will be highlighting those who have made contributions to our collective cultural knowledge, as well as those who have become “hidden figures” themselves.

On International Women’s Day we support #ADayWithoutAWoman and hope you will too. Here in Lawrence we are participating in the local General Strike:

From 11-6 today (March 8th) you can express solidarity with the worldwide women’s strike here in Lawrence, Watson Park. Childcare available!!  Campus anti-conceal carry activist Megan Jones will be one of the featured speakers.

Women all over the world are planning to go on strike on March 8 – which is also International Women’s Day. Women are called on to abstain from whatever work you do. In solidarity with women around the world and as a place for women and femmes (and their allies) in Lawrence and the surrounding areas to spend the day together in community, we will have speakers, performers, and more. THIS IS AN INTERSECTIONAL EVENT AND WILL BE SAFE FOR ALL WOMEN. We are dedicated to centering the issues of marginalized women. Please join us.


In Solidarity.
