Celebrate International Women's Day

Today, March 8th 2010, women worldwide will unite to literally bridge the gap between their countries and demand the peace they deserve. In honor of International Women’s Day, author of A Thousand Sisters, Lisa Shannon, will be joining the women of Rwanda and Congo as they meet on a bridge between their two countries to call for an end to the war and to demonstrate that women can build bridges to peace and development.

In support of Women for Women International’s global campaign called, “Join me on the Bridge,” women and men of Seal Press, Avalon Travel, and Publishers Group West will be marching to the City of Berkeley’s Eastshore Pedestrian Bridge at 12:00 p.m. They will stand in unity with thousands of women worldwide honoring the resilience of millions of women around the world who are survivors of war.

Please join us in our support of all women as we demand peace in every nation. By joining this campaign you will be standing alongside women in the Congo, Rwanda, Afghanistan, Bosnia, Kosovo, Iraq, Sudan, and Nigeria in saying no to war, and yes to peace and hope.
