Yes, we know there has been some progress in women’s rights and equality since 1960’s, but today, a half a century later, we still see gender-related discrimination in nearly every area: sports, government, business, education, etc. The US Congress has a record 125 women currently serving (104 in the House, 21 in the Senate). But we have a long way to go when it comes to gender parity! And women in other parts of the world have even bigger challenges. Not a day goes by without hearing terrible stories about women and children living in Asia, South America, Africa, and even parts of Europe. Let’s join together and keep pushing for change!
Our own Advisory Board member, State Senator Joyce Elliot and Ms. Aysun Serbes, who has recently made Arkansas her home after fleeing persecution with her husband and two children, will tell their stories. This event is co-sponsored by our friends at the Arkansas Culture and Dialog Center (fka the Raindrop Foundation) and Advocates for Silenced Turkey. Please RSVPto [email protected].
When: Friday, March 8th at 6:30 p.m. Where: 1501 Market Street, 72211 Refreshments and Q&A will follow the event.
