Tomorrow, in Minnesota, we will be “Shivering on the Bridge” to celebrate the 100th anniversary of International Women’s Day.
All over the world, people will be gathering on bridges in groups large and small, with messages of peace on banners and celebrating with speeches, music and entertainment.
The Join me on the Bridge Campaign will be calling for an end to violence against women in conflict zones and to give women an equal seat at the peace negotiation table in countries like Afghanistan.
Join us on the Peace Bridge, spanning the Mississippi River at Lake St Minneapolis – Marshall Ave, St Paul, any time between noon and 6pm.
In addition to participating in a bridge event, you are encouraged to take part in the 100 for 100 Fundraising Challenge and to sign our Stronger Women Petition to support women of Afghanistan. www.womenforwomen.org www.womenforwomen.org
Sa-sa-see you there!
