Join us in our monthly circle dance session!
On the eve of International Women’s Day, we’ll dance to celebrate women. Women have been on the front lines of many struggles including for social justice, environment protection, and world peace. We celebrate these pioneers – women such as Clara Zetkin and others who, in 1910, called for International Women’s Day. We honour the bravery of immigrant women working in harsh conditions in textile mills in Lawrence, Massachusetts, who organized the Bread and Roses strike in 1912. And we applaud the St Petersburg’s female textile workers, who in 1917 walked out on strike, beginning the tremendous revolutionary movement that overthrew the Tsar and began the Russian Revolution.
We respect every woman who stands up to injustices. We pay tribute to all the unsung heroines of this world that toil day after day, taking care of children and families, who work on the front lines of the care sector as nurses, teachers, care workers, and in hospitality and service industries. We celebrate women who join with other women in holding up this world and working for a better future for all.
Dances will be taught by the UCV Circle Dance collective and other dancers.
