Now more than ever, it is time to build bridges across communities –
our celebration will gather folks from across the city to recognize
and celebrate of one hundred years of strength, solidarity, and

Join RAHA Iranian Women’s Collective for a special community
celebration of 100 years of International Women’s Day! There will be
a screening of two short documentaries of the historic 1979 women’s
day march in Tehran that drew women from around the world, and of the
2006 Million Signature Campaign which mobilized women across Iran to
gather signatures in support of ending discriminatory laws against
women. The screenings will be followed by a roundtable discussion
amongst activists and participants from throughout NYC. Plus cake!
