As part of KPFA's daylong celebration of International Women's Day, Women's Magazine presents the history of IWD. Feminist historian Eileen Boris speaks about the origins in U.S. working women's strikes in the early 1900s and its anti-war role during WW I; veteran activists Aileen Hernandez and Judith Mirkinson reflect on IWD's resurgence during the second wave of feminism in the sixties and seventies; Malihe Razazan presents a documentary on feminist protests following the Iranian Islamic Revolution of 1979.
