“Join Me On The Bridge” – International Womens Day Celebration – 3/7/10

Join Me On The Bridge

“Join Me On The Bridge!”

International Women’s Day marks its 99th anniversary on March 8, 2010.

In honor of that day, women of Rwanda and the Republic of the Congo will bridge their two countries in a demonstration to show to the world their dream of peace, and to demand an end to violence, particularly against women and children. This event has inspired women around the globe to join their effort and stand united in the desire to build bridges of peace.

You and your organization are invited to join
in a local “Bridge” event
expressing solidarity with all women
who want to end violence against women and children
