Tuesday, March 8 is the 100th anniversary of National Women’s Day.
What began as an equal opportunity movement 100 years ago in Denmark has spread across the the globe, incorporating peace and arts initiatives that celebrate women.
Locally, Kate Spade and the Women for Women organization are collaborating to sponsor their 2nd annual Join Me on the Bridge. Across the country, thousands of women will meet on over 119 bridges around the world to recognize this day.
The event will kick off with a pre-party at their Oak Street store from 4 – 6 p.m. and will include refreshments, treats, and handmade bags and jewelry commemorating the day for purchase. 15 percent of the sales will be donated to Women for Women. The event concludes with a 6:30 gathering on the Franklin Street bridge. If you would like more information on this Chicago event, call 312-654-8853 or visit the event website.
