Join Us at Portland International Women's Day

Do you often think to yourself, "I wish I could be at an event with over 2,000 people honoring women and the work they do?" Do you often want to attend women's workshops, panels, hear women musicians and speakers, and buy things from women vendors??

If so, PORTLAND INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY is happening THIS SUNDAY (!) at Portland State University in the Smith Center Ballroom from 2p - 8p. PWCL will be there as a community tabling partner, and our very own ED Rebecca Peatow Nickels will be on the "Womening Working for the Community Panel". Hey, I'll even be there facilitating the panel. Come check out my facilitatin' skills.

Other exciting things happening at PIWD 2008:
  • Blubird (Rock n' Roll Camp for Girls band who also performed at PWCL's Safety In Numbers 2007)
  • Liv Warfield performance
  • The Alphabetix performance
  • Performance by Oregonian columnist S Renee Mitchell
  • Appearance by Hip Mama author Ariel Gore
  • Workshops
  • Table and food vendors
I'm really excited about this event... mostly because two of the raddest chicks in activism have been chairing this year. So here's a shout out to fellow PWCL blogger Katie C. and Portland State Women's Resource Center all-star staffer Zena P. I can't wait for Sunday!
