CU Celebrates International Women's Week

March 3, 1998

The International Women’s Alliance at CU-Boulder is hosting three workshops a day, March 3 through March 6, during International Women’s Week, which began Sunday with a keynote speech by Winona LaDuke, an internationally acclaimed Native American and environmental activist.

The workshops are scheduled from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in conference rooms 158 and 159, located in the University Memorial Center.

The theme of this year’s event is “Globalization: Bringing it home. Women Working Locally for Global Justice.” The workshops will cover issues such as breast cancer, women’s political action, sweatshop labor, sexuality, healing food obsessions, self defense and diversity.

On Thursday, March 5, Dr. Deborah Toler, a specialist on the global political economy and racism, hunger and environmental issues in Africa and Haiti, will speak at the Forum Room in the UMC at 7 p.m.

International Women’s week will end with the annual Ethnic Food Fest on Saturday, March 7, at noon in the Dennis Small Cultural Center, UMC room 303. All events are free and open to the public. However, to attend the Food Fest, people should RSVP by March 4 because space is limited.

Please contact the Women’s Resource Center at 492-5713 for more information or to make meal reservations.
