Women's History Month
This month highlights the contributions made by women to every facet of society. We celebrate women's collective and individual strengths with speakers, panels, entertainment, films and get-togethers throughout the month. As we clarify the roles of women in our country and throughout the world, we are inspired to set goals for the future.

March 8th: Broads on the Boards
March is Women's History Month, and the Greater Grand Forks Community Theatre is showcasing new work by the writers in their "Broads on the Boards" workshop. The Community Theatre was awarded a grant by the Community Foundation of East Grand Forks and Grand Forks' Women's Fund to produce the 6-week workshop which culminates in a performance. "Women playwrights and women's stories are grossly under-represented in the American theatre," said Kathy CoudleKing, the workshop leader and a playwright, herself. Stories are told again and again from a male perspective ora male's experience of life. And while those stories need to be told, so do the stories of the other 51% of the population."
The women will present their own monologues and each other's monologues on stage at the Fire Hall Theatre, Thursday, March 8th at 7:30 p.m. The event is only $10 and will go toward supporting future workshops.
Writers/Actors include: Pat Danielson, Lana DeMars, Karen Fore, Jackie Hoffarth, Heather Joy Jackson, Lyric Jackson, Theresa Knox.
