Our Opportunity for International Women’s Day

An Inventive Tribute to International Women's Day

By Teresa Bagley

Feminism shouldn't be exclusive to scholars, advocates, researchers and policy wonks. Women's issues affect all of us, and this is an excellent way to introduce knowledge to the general public, who, if given the facts, might understand, care and perhaps be moved to action.

A New One-Hour Documentary by Tami Gold
