Women Empowered hosts International Women’s Month Event

Women Empowered, a new local organization, will hold an observance in honor of International Women’s Month from 6:30 p. m. to 8 p. m., Monday, March 18, at The Lingonberry, 218 W. Water St., Decorah.

Light snacks and beverages will be available. Free-will donations are welcome to cover costs.

All women are invited to participate in the local event. Women from Zimbabwe, Sudan, Ghana, Burundi, India and Pakistan will share their stories of challenges and triumphs that brought them to be current students at Luther College. The audience is encouraged to ask questions.

International Women’s Month is observed annually world-wide in March with rallies, empowering parades and proclamations that encourage women to celebrate women’s achievements. Women’s advancements in science, business and socio-political arenas are frequently recognized.

All Women Empowered meetings are held monthly, providing area women of all ages the opportunity to network, support each other and learn ways to grow personally. To be included in the email announcements of events and further information, contact Nina Taylor: ninataylor1827@gmail.com.
