Lowell This Week: Women's Week

Women Leading Change: In Our Hearts, Homes, and World
Lowell Women's Week 2009 celebrates women--from the women who have come before us to the women of today.
Our celebration takes place during March, proclaimed by a joint resolution of Congress in 1987 as Women's History Month. This month-long observance grew out of Women's History Week, initiated in 1978 by the Sonoma County (California) Commission on the Status of Women and enacted in 1981 by a Joint Congressional Resolution. At the center of the celebration is International Women's Day, celebrated worldwide on March 8. For more information and the complete list of events, visit: Lowell Women's Week

Working Stories - Karen Westphalen
FRI 8-10pm The Revolving Museum
Ages 18+
"WorkingStories is an audio documentary created from interviews with women and men who have worked in the sex industry. This project intends to portray the real lives of individuals who are frequently misunderstood and misrepresented. Many of the interviewees discuss their work as something that they chose to do. By challenging ourselves to see beyond the negative stereotypes, we can hopefully begin to understand the plight of those for whom prostitution is a trap, not a choice, the individuals who most need help in order to find a way out."
