Nevada County women do their part in global activities

As women in several countries participate in the second annual “Gather the Women” activities beginning Monday, which is International Women’s Day, area women will do the same.

With a theme of “weaving a world that works,” Grass Valley activities that are under the nonprofit Women of Vision and Action organization, include:

– Monday – “A Day of Remembering” the vast contributions made by women and connections to each other and to the world at large.

– Tuesday – “A Day of Spiritual Grounding” and envisioning a world that works via thoughts, prayers and meditations.

– Wednesday – “Exploring our Connections” through storytelling, listening to each other, embracing diversity and seeking commonality.

– March 11 – “A Day of Exploring our Opportunities” for exploring actions taken collaboratively within family, local communities, and the world.

– March 12 – “A Day of Purposeful Action,” during which a concrete action is taken.

– March 13 – “A Day of Gathering, Inspiration, Celebration and Collaboration,” an all-day program that includes an art show and bookstore preview at noon; music, poetry and keynote speaker Patricia Lynn Reilly, author of “Imagine a Woman in Love With Herself,” from 12:45 to 4:45 p.m.; and networking from 4:45 to 5:30 p.m.

All activities are at the Grass Valley Veterans Building, 255 S. Auburn St. Except for March 13, activities are from noon to 1 p.m. and are free. Admission is $10 general and $8 for students and seniors March 13; tickets are at The Herb Shop, The Earth Store, BriarPatch and Odyssey Books.
