International Women’s Day is March 8, 2022. Each year this day is set aside to celebrate women’s hard-earned achievements, raise awareness against bias, and take action against inequality for women around the world. The following day, March 9th, The Sedona Women (“TSW”) will wear white in solidarity during an in-person event highlighting both the achievements and challenges facing women here at home. Guest speaker Jennifer Camano, representing the Arizona Foundation for Women, will address the significant issues still facing Arizona women and discuss ways to meet these challenges. This timely event will be open to the public on Wednesday, March 9th at 10 a.m. at the Creative Life Center in Sedona.
