2011: International Women's Day celebrations at Rye, Victoria, Australia

International Women's Day will once again be celebrated in all its darkness and its lightness at the Women's House at 3 Lyons Street Rye, on 8 March 2011. As usual there will be debates with women at the microphone. This time a feature will be women and Sharia Law. Known as "That Purple Place," the Women's Resource Centre was founded in 1982 by Elida Radig, a local and international tower of strength and force for good in Australia. Elida is also known for her creation of the Women's House program, where different female voices present "Freewaves" on 3RPP, Thursdays, 3-4pm. Rye Victoria's Women's Resource Centre is one of very few totally independent forces for women. It receives no government funding but is self-supporting, mostly through sales at its second hand store, which is one of the best loved in Victoria. There is also a cafe on the premises. The centre also provides hands-on support for women and their children in crisis.

March 8th is International Women's Day!

“ In sisterhood is our strength” Monday March 8 is International Women's Day. The Rye Women's House at 3 Lyons Street, Rye, Victoria, Phone 59 855 955, on the Mornington Peninsula will be celebrating its silver anniversary. Founded by Elida Radig, It is perhaps the oldest independent feminist institution of its kind in Victoria and it does an awesome International Women's Day. Please come along and experience the intellects, the humour, the politics, the music, the food... They mean what they say when they say, "The microphone is open to all women all day".
