The 15th Annual International Women's Day Celebration will take place on March 6th, 2010, at Coffman Memorial Union, University of Minnesota. Organized by The Advocates and the Human Rights Program in the College of Liberal Arts at the U of M, this day-long event is expected to draw between 500-700 participants for an exciting day of workshops, plenary sessions, and performances. It is an occasion to highlight advancements in women's rights and equality, to encourage activism, and to educate participants about human rights issues that affect girls and women locally, nationally and internationally. The event is free, and a light lunch is also provided free of charge for all participants.
