March 8th – La Festa della Donna – International Women’s Day – Italian Women Contributions

International Women’s Day (March 8) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating women’s equality.

This episode is to celebrate International Women’s Day, and in particular, historical Italian women who have made significant societal contributions, as well as contributions of modern Italian women, specifically from the Order Sons and Daughters of Italy in America. Thank you to Catena Marie Spiritosanto from the Order Sons and Daughters of Italy in America for her research!
