In honor of Women’s History Month and International Women’s Day, NewMexicoWomen.Org staff drove a very windy five hours to visit the Center for Gender Equity at Western New Mexico University in Silver City.

Every year, The Center hosts a week-long series of events in order to raise awareness about gender equity issues. This year it was called F-Week — or feminist week. Along with other speakers and activists from around the state, NMW.O was invited to present the findings from their forthcoming research report, “The Heart of Gender Justice in New Mexico: Intersectionality, Economic Security, and Health Equity.” Read NMW.O’s full update here.
