In commemoration of International Women's Day, the IWD-2001-Chicago Conference has been organized to call attention to the collective power of women. The Bush administration has already begun its assault on women's hard-won rights, making it more urgent than ever for us to come together to discuss the road ahead in 2001. In an increasingly "globalized" economy, how will we as women resist within and transform the multiple worlds we inhabit? This conference will provide a forum for Chicago-area women to connect, strategize and share information with each other. We aim to make this conference a new beginning for perspectives on how to change the conditions of our lives and world. Join us for an exciting day of workshops, discussions, videos, an organization-book fair, poetry, art, music & more!
