The community is invited to join UMKC faculty and community leadership for a panel discussion celebrating International Working Women's Day. Working women have had a long history of demonstrating for worker's rights, women's suffrage and rights, and peace -- the earliest record being in 1911. Join labor organizers and researchers as they discuss the contemporary relevance of International Working Women's Day, advances made by women workers in the workplace and beyond, and challenges that continue across racial, ethnic, and national boundaries.
