A trio of International Women’s Day events


If you’re looking for ways to honor International Women’s Day, which falls on Sunday, there’s a pretty diverse variety of events going on around Brooklyn that should fit the bill. For example, you can start the day with a brunch-time screening of the 1950 Bette Davis classic All About Eve at the Prospect Park Nitehawk Cinema. Pioneering female film editor Barabara “Bobby” McLean of 20th Century Fox received one of her seven Best Editing Oscar nominations for this movie, a record that wasn’t surpassed until 2012. There’s also an International Women’s Day Festival happening just a hop skip and a jump away at Threes Brewing all afternoon. The programming includes a comedy show hosted by Kendra Cunningham, a live recording of the “Welcome to My Vagina” podcast, a screening of Knock Down the House, a womxyn’s music showcase, and a raffle to benefit Girls Leadership, a nonprofit that helps girls find the power of their voice. Later that evening, National Sawdust is hosting the Women’s Raga Massive for an evening of poetry, narrative, and sound, featuring a poetry reading by Sham-e-Ali Nayeem and a multimedia tribute to Lakshmi Shankar.
