A RARE SURVIVAL OF THIS "HIPPY" LEAFLET, ANNOUNCING A CELEBRATION OF "SISTERHOOD AND OUR SOLIDARITY WITH THE PEOPLE ALL OVER THE WORLD STRUGGLING FOR LIBERATION." The flyer asks participants to "Bring trips (!), food, family, frisbees, music, games, soul, spirit, and BODY [...] Childcare provided!" The leaflet was distributed by "The Sisters of the Haight," an organization that can no longer be traced.

"International Women's Day is celebrated on the 8th of March every year around the world. It is a focal point in the movement for women's rights. After the Socialist Party of America organized a Women's Day in New York City on February 28, 1909, German delegates Clara Zetkin, Kate Duncker and others proposed at the 1910 International Socialist Woman's Conference that 'a special Women's Day' be organized annually. After women gained suffrage in Soviet Russia in 1917, March 8 became a national holiday there. The day was then predominantly celebrated by the socialist movement and communist countries until it was adopted by the feminist movement in about 1967. The United Nations began celebrating the day in 1977."
