Saturday, March 6 – International Women’s Day Celebration

The theme of this year’s event is “The Power of Community to Achieve Global Gender Equality”, which is inspired by Dining for Women’s new mission statement: Dining for Women cultivates the collective power of community to achieve global gender equality.  In order to be successful in achieving global gender equality, we must do it in community together. Dining for Women is a powerful global community of women and girls and their allies, making life-changing differences for each other and for the world. Our members and our grantees work together to elevate the issue of gender inequality and to create opportunities for women and girls to thrive all over the world. There is power in coming together as women and allies who care about making the world a better place for women and girls, and we will celebrate this at our International Women’s Day event with an amazing discussion that will include:

Book:  In the Time of the Butterflies

Author:  Julia Alvarez

Summary: Historical fiction. Set during the waning days of the Trujillo dictatorship in the Dominican Republic in 1960, this extraordinary novel tells the story of the Mirabal sisters, three young wives and mothers who are assassinated after visiting their jailed husbands.  From the author of How the Garcia Girls Lost Their Accents comes this tale of courage and sisterhood set in the Dominican Republic during the rise of the Trujillo dictatorship. A skillful blend of fact and fiction, In the Time of the Butterflies is inspired by the true story of the three Mirabal sisters who, in 1960, were murdered for their part in an underground plot to overthrow the government. Alvarez breathes life into these historical figures–known as “las mariposas,” or “the butterflies,” in the underground–as she imagines their teenage years, their gradual involvement with the revolution, and their terror as their dissentience is uncovered.

Virtual Discussion: Wednesday, April 7, 2021 at 8 pm (tentative).  Register here.
