My involvement with strengthening women and families spans decades
Saratoga Springs, Utah (PRWEB) February 24, 2011
The Women's Information Network (also known as The WIN), created and spearheaded by international women’s advocate Dr. Paula Fellingham, is planning the largest gathering of women for International Women’s Day in the history of the world.
On March 7 and 8, 2011, tens of thousands of women in ten U. S. cities and over 150 countries with 350 international events will celebrate with The WIN to mark the 100th anniversary of International Women's Day.
“My involvement with strengthening women and families spans decades,” says WIN founder and CEO Dr. Paula Fellingham. “Without a doubt, this historic event will increase the momentum of today's global women's movement and propel awareness of women’s issues worldwide.” Fellingham’s motto is “International Women's Day - This Is Our Time!”
Fellingham, whose mission is “to strengthen women and families worldwide,” is an internationally known speaker and best-selling author of five books. Her credentials include addressing the United Nations, consulting for the World Congress on Families, and serving as delegate at NATO Headquarters in Paris for the World Movement of Mothers.
The Los Angeles event, the hub of The WIN’s global celebration, will be live video streamed. In addition to inspiring participants in LA, attendees in the other nine U.S. cities, Atlanta, Boston, Denver, Houston, Miami, New York City, Reno, San Francisco, and Washington DC, as well as women around the world, can participate in real time.
“More and more women are being educated, enlightened and empowered,” says Fellingham in her live-streaming welcome address. “Empowered women can improve their economic status and move out of survival mode, move into self-mastery, and move up to selfless service, which will always lift the level of love and peace on earth.” Fellingham points out that, “on this day women will celebrate like never before and connect as only women do.”
Other segments scheduled to be live-streamed include a speech by Deidre Hall, actress (Days of Our Lives) and author of "Deidre Hall's Kitchen Close-up,” as well as a production of the highly-acclaimed play “We Did It for You.” The play chronicles historic achievements of women who stood for equality and social justice.
Participating in the local events are business and personal development leaders, fitness experts, athletes, and best-selling authors who will touch on ways to help women and families be healthier and prepare for the future right now. Still other speakers will discuss advocacy and making positive changes in communities and countries.
Anne-Louise Sterry, songwriter and speaker, is the winner of the International Women’s Day Song Contest to create the perfect song to commemorate this milestone celebration. The song, entitled “This is Our Time,” will debut at this special 100th anniversary. “The song reminds me why I am so proud to be a part of this amazing event,” Fellingham says.
