March is Women’s History Month and March 8th is International Women’s Day. Women's History Month is an annual declared month that highlights the contributions of women to events in history and contemporary society and International Women’s Day is a celebration of respect, appreciation and love towards women for their economic, political and social achievements. We will be celebrating Women’s History Month and International Women’s Day here at the ACFJC on March 24th with our Women Celebrating Women Event. This year our theme is Women in Science, Technology and Industry. There will be food, music, her-story, a museum and speakers.
The event is from 11-1pm here at the FJC (470-27th Street in Oakland).
