Leadership Alliances nationwide are planning major events to celebrate the achievements of feminists and the women’s movement. During this month, your group can work for reproductive rights worldwide on International Women’s Day (March 8th), and support abortion rights at home on the National Day of Appreciation for Abortion Providers (March 10th).
Check out what actions are currently underway by our groups across the nation: The Leadership Alliance at CAL STATE LOS ANGELES, along with the Women’s Resource Center, will present “Revolution Grrrl Style!” a symposium on women and music. This full day of panels and films will focus on women’s experiences in Hip Hop and Punk Rock, featuring musical artists, filmmakers and performance artists.

Kamen, author of “Her Way: Young Women Remake the Sexual Revolution,” and playwright of “Jane: Abortion and the Underground,” will speak about today’s changing sexual roles & choices.
The BRANDEIS UNIVERSITY Feminist Majority Leadership Alliance will feature “Feminist Week 2001,” a weeklong event to promote reproductive rights, the voice of young feminists and multicultural feminism. Highlights will include a 2-night feminist film festival, feminist forums and lectures, and a coffeehouse fundraiser featuring local bands to promote choice.
The recently launched Feminist Majority Leadership Alliance at INDIANA UNIVERSITY, is participating in a campaign to stop Senate Bill 3, an anti-abortion bill which would impose hospital building regulations on abortion clinics, a change which is unreasonable, unnecessary, and would effectively shut down virtually every abortion clinic in Indiana.
The ST. LAWRENCE LEADERSHIP ALLIANCE is organizing a public education campaign about Bush’s recent anti-choice appointments and will flyer their campus with facts and statistics from the Transition Watch website, www.transitionwatch.com.
