March 1, 2010 at 3:49 pm Leave a comment

Next Monday is International Women’s Day—a day marked annually since 1911 with the goal of bringing more attention to women’s achievements. This Saturday, the Baltimore office of the International Rescue Committee–an organization that helps resettle refugees in the area—is hosting a lunch to raise awareness about the particular difficulties facing female refugees in the United States. Sheilah talks to Claudia Connor, the IRC’s Regional Director for U.S. Programs.

“Education: The Power to Change – International Women’s Day Luncheon” is from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, March 6. More information here.
