New site: Advocates for Silenced Turkey host International Women’s Day event 3/12

Reports from Turkey say pregnant women are being jailed and then have their babies in prison. The event—at 1-2 pm at 4405 Gillham Road—highlights women’s suffering in Turkey and throughout the world, and holds out hope locally through women’s empowerment.
