March 8th --International Women's Day-- was inspired by a militant street demonstration in 1908, when women from sweatshops and tenements on New York's Lower East Side marched to Union Square with demands for higher wages, better working conditions, the right to vote and an end to child labor. For the sixth consecutive year, the International Women's Day Video Festival commemorates this occasion with productions by women worldwide. This year the festival includes tapes from Sweden, Israel and France, focusing on the theme "Women's Agenda for the New Century. Where Do We Go From Here?" Coordinated by Susan Fleischmann, Abigail Norman and Veda Reilly in association with six public access stations in the greater Boston Area.
