International Women's Day
Dean Cianciarulo will be speaking and leading a discussion about women in law, and the upcoming 100th anniversary of the women's suffrage amendment, which was ratified in 1920.
International Women's Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity.
It has occurred for well over a century, with the first IWD gathering in 1911 supported by over a million people in Austria, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland. Prior to this the Socialist Party of America. United Kingdom's Suffragists and Suffragettes, and further groups campaigned for women's equality.
The event theme for 2019 is #BalanceforBetter.
