March 8 Women's Day Discussion and March 10 Appreciation for Abortion Providers Day

Because I am a woman.
Because feminism is why I wake up in the morning.
Because feminism is the best thing that ever happened to me.
Because I have a lot of questions and concerns about feminism and its history.
Because I wanted to be in a room full of other women on International Women’s day.

These are just some of the reasons the 29 people who attended yesterday’s feminism discussion at Queer Paradise gave about why they showed up to such an event. It was a diverse crowd, spanning generations, gender identities, and even the globe.... Follow the link below to get the full scoop on Women's Day in Richmond.

Yesterday in Brazil, 35,000 women marched in part to celebrate Women’s Day. Women in India put out the call for a Global Women’s Strike. Women and their allies came together to share and struggle together across the US. Maybe this time next year, Richmond can pull off a bigger and better Women’s Day on March 8 here in our hometown.

Tomorrow, March 10, is the U.S’s National Day of Appreciation for Abortion Providers, a date created in 1996 commemorating the death of Dr. David Gun, the first abortion doctor assassinated by anti-abortion terrorists. Perhaps next year we can unite March 8 and March 10, tying together these crucial remembrances and creating even more time together. Yesterday's post-discussion performance served this purpose terrifically, as it was a benefit for the Richmond Reproductive Freedom Project. Hopefully, we can get together and work together long before next year comes around.
