Happy Women’s Day
Today is International Women’s Day, which coincides with Women’s History Month, observed in the U.S. in March. The theme this year, as declared by the United Nations, is “Empower Rural Women—End Hunger and Poverty.” But regional groups develop their own focal points.
In Albuquerque, there’s the Women & Creativity series, which unfolds over the course of the month. Tonight, Instituto Cervantes is presenting They Count, a documentary about women of African descent living in Brazil. It will screen at the National Hispanic Cultural Center’s Bank of America Theatre at 7 p.m.
International Women’s Day has been celebrated for 101 years, beginning in 1911 after German activist Clara Zetkin called for it at the International Conference of Working Women.
