Post Date:03/01/2017 9:59 AM

Cultural differences and commonalities will be the focus of a Women’s History Month program cosponsored by the Somerset County Commission on the Status of Women and the Raritan Valley Community College Office of Multicultural Affairs.

“A Woman’s Story: A Celebration of Culture” will be held at the RVCC conference center on Thursday, March 30, from 7 to 9 p.m. There is no charge to attend but pre-registration is requested. Sign up here to attend.

Women – and men – are invited and encouraged to bring their daughters, mothers, sisters and other female relatives and friends. The program will consist of presentations by a five-member panel of women from a variety of cultural backgrounds who will discuss their experiences as immigrants to the United States. A question-and-answer period will follow.

“Through these speakers’ stories we can get a sense of how women can change the world,” said Freeholder Patricia Walsh, commission liaison. “Although we may come from different backgrounds, we have many commonalities. This is a perfect topic to wrap up the celebration of Women’s History Month.”
