]: ,[ ,Z .i  Money raised to date for Vienna trip :.: '34,000 i; >: International Woman's Day to be celebrated March 8 On March 8. 1980, people all over the world will be celebrating the 70th In- ternational Women's Day. In Sonoma County this day will mark our third annual County-wide celebration of Women's History Week. culminating with the second annual Women's History Week Parade. The idea for a Women's History Week celebration, which originated here in Sonoma County. has been picked up nationally by hundrpds of Women's Organizations in virtually every state of the union. 12 states, including California, have passed or are now considering resolutions proclaiming official state- wide celebrations of Women's History Week March 2-8, 1980; many individual cities and counties have done likewise. Here in Sonoma County, the Board of Supervisors have passed an official proclamation of Women's History Week, and similar proclamations will come before the City Council in the next few weeks. The Sonoma County Commission on the Status of Women, the originator and sponsor of Women's History Week, is joined this year by the County Office of Education and the County Library in providing resource speakers for a multitude of programs in the county's schools. A five-page list of Community Resource Women who are available to speak in classrooms during Women's History Week on various aspects of their own ex- perience, women's cultural traditions and women's history, has been cir- culated to all the schools, along with posters, bibliographies, biographies, games and history supplements. Teachers are encouraged to make use of these materials in planning special programs in their classrooms.
