Portland International Women's Day will feature educational workshops, art exhibits, a health fair, entertainment, retail vendors and international food. There will be a presentation by Inga Muscio, internationally acclaimed author, a performance by The Flat Mountain Girls, a local, all-female bluegrass band, and the premiere of Grandma Zula's Legacy, a documentary by local artist and activist Julianne Johnson.
Over 1500 people of diverse cultures and backgrounds will come together in a celebration that expresses the richness, beauty, and value of women and their contributions to the community. The mission of Portland International Women's Day is to provide opportunities for women, and the community at large, to discover similarities and learn from the differences in an environment that is respectful, inclusive, and supportive of the values and points of view of all women.
