"Join Us On The Bridge": Celebrating the 100th Anniversary of International Women's Day. From March 6 to March 8, women and men around the world will be joining together for a unique celebration of the 100th anniversary of International Women’s Day: they’ll be gathering on bridges to highlight the critical role of women in waging peace and building a better future for all.
Locally, the event will be held on Sunday, March 7, on the
9th Street Bridge. Women and men will gather on either side of the bridge at 2:30 p.m., then begin marching at 3pm to meet each other with banners and songs in the middle of the bridge. At press time, a dozen organizations were involved in sponsoring the events, including the American Friends Service Committee PA Program, Pittsburgh CodePink, Roots of Promise, several local chapters of NOW, Students for Justice in , School of the Americas Watch/Western Pennsylvania, Women’s Independent Press, and Dr. Goddess Arts, Education and Management.
