In 1911, “more than one million women and men attended (event rallies) campaigning for women’s rights to work, vote, be trained, to hold public office and end discrimination,” according to www.internationalwomensday.com.
March 8 marks the International Women’s Day centenary.
In honor of the centenary and in recognition of March as Women’s Month, the Associated Student Government is presenting a series of guest speakers March 9. The goal is to “celebrate achievements and share the tribulations women have faced via personal stories,” according to a flyer for the event.
Speakers will include City College professor Maria Garcia; Dr. Shirley Weber, head of the Africana department at SDSU; and Jasmine Guerrero, one of the directors of San Diego’s Friends of Downtown.
The free event will take place in the Saville Theater from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
