AUSTIN — In celebration of International Women’s Day the Feminist Action Committee of Austin’s Democratic Socialists of America is putting on a Music Fest featuring bands and spoken word. A $10 donation is suggested and will benefit the Lilith Fund.

This will be the third year that DSA socialist feminists have fundraised for the Lilith Fund, an organization that supports the right of all Texans to make their own reproductive choices, regardless of income.

The Music Fest will be Thursday, March 8, 2018, on Inks Avenue (Navasota and 8th Street), from 6-10 p.m. Doors open at 6 p.m. Music begins at 7. The event is open to the public. Drinks will be available. A $10 donation at the door is suggested. The line-up includes Allysa Grace Music, Tiarra Girls, and Christina Culverhouse, with other musical talent expected.

International Women’s Day, celebrated the world over on March 8, has its origins in the struggle of women garment workers in the United States. See previous Rag Blog coverage of International Women’s Day.
