Women’s Day was first celebrated in the United States in 1909 as a tribute to labor issues. Historically, the day acknowledges the struggles for social and economic justice that women face. It faded from popularity in the United States while gaining traction in Socialist and Communist countries. In 1977 under the auspices of the United Nations, International Women’s Day Celebrations returned to the west.”

Carolyn’s note:  That’s me at 3:30 p.m. on Sunday, my first time interview on a radio show. I did co-guest host once for their Mele O Hawaii program (also on KXCI on Saturdays, 6 to 8 a.m.) a while back, but that was a different role. Listen to me discuss with Amanda about the WWII Japanese American internment, a dark time in U.S. history.  I helped create the National Commission which investigated the wrong.

  1. Just listened to my interview on KXCI about creating the National Commission which investigated the Japanese American internment, still a timely issue. Don’t miss the 3 exhibits at the Tucson Desert Art Musuem, ongoing till 4/30/17. And if you want to see more specifically on the Gila River internment camp, drive up to Chandler Museum to see their exhibit (till summer, 2017). And I’m still trying to catch “Allegiance” musical film starring former internee George Takei, which opened on Dec. 13, 2016.
    Discussion by women after my interview about Women’s March and International Women’s Day on March 8, as well as immigration.
