International Women's Day March

The Museum will host its first International Women's Day March on Sunday, March 8th, 2020.  The March is part of New Jersey's Nineteenth Amendment Centennial Initiative, which commemorates the passage of the Constitutional admendment which granted women across the country the legal right to vote.  While this parade honors women's solidarity, activism and achievements, it also acknowledges the inequities and challenges New Jersey women of all backgrounds have faced and continue to confront from 1920 to the present day.

March 8th is a significant day for this March because it is a global day of celebrating social, economic and political achievements of women.

All community organizations, unions, businesses, cultural groups and individuals interested in joining this historic March may contact the Museum to register.  Please call (973) 595-7953 to register and for futher information.
