Snow Strikes Again — Cancels International Women’s Day Celebration

The Louisville celebration of International Women’s Day, planned for the last many months, scheduled for Saturday afternoon, March 8, had to be cancelled due to the severe weather that is even now visiting the Louisville area. What a disappointment this has been!

After yesterday’s uplifting worship service, reflecting on “Bread and Roses,” and reminding us all that we would be celebrating a day to remember women’s accomplishments, demands for justice, struggles for suffrage, and contributions to civic culture, the arts, learning and common life, we were particularly looking forward to the celebration with the whole city of Louisville.

We are hopeful that at least some elements of the planned celebration — like the interactive art project including images of inspirational women — will be rescheduled for later in the month, or possibly April. We’ll keep our readers apprised of developments along these lines.

In the meantime, we are thinking of and praying for the women of Afghanistan, who will not be cancelling their march for peace due to snowy weather. We wish them safety, and success, which would benefit us all.

About Ha_Qohelet

Ha_Qohelet is a transliteration of Hebrew definite article plus a feminine participle, all together meaning "the (feminine) one who assembles" or who calls together. Qohelet is the title of one of the books of the Hebrew Scripture, known in English as Ecclesiastes. The Women's Center at LPTS feels the epithet of Qohelet is a fitting one for what we do and are. The Women's Center is, indeed, a caller-together, a caller-to-wisdom, and an assembler -- of people, of ideas, of actions, and ultimately, we hope, of transformations in the world. In this context, Ha_Qohelet is the Director of the Women's Center, and Editor-in-Chief of Wimminwise.
