Dozens Celebrate Women's History Month

Women’s History Month kicked off on March 8 with a parade at Union Church. The theme of this parade was “Celebrating International Woman’s Day.” Over 30 participants carried signs and wore costumes as they walked through Berea to show their pride in women.

Other events planned this month to celebrate women’s contributions and raise awareness of women’s issues included a presentation and discussion by the author, Constance Curry, of the documentary “The Intolerable Burden,” a speech on raising children with egalitarian ideals, “Raising Non-Sexist Children in a Sexist World,” and Liz Wilson who presented “Feminist or Fembot: What Does it mean When the Buddha’s Momma Goes All Thelma and Louise on Us?” Women Uniting for P.E.A.C.E also sponsored a Ladies Lounge with an open mic, coffee, and discussion on March 19, 2004.

To wrap up the celebration, several students will attend a “March for Women’s Lives” on April 25th in Washington, D.C.
