March 8th is International Women’s Day, a day to celebrate the economic, political and social achievements of women. On Monday March 9th, the weekly Arlington devotional will be focused on the topic of the equality of men and women.
“The world of humanity is possessed of two wings: the male and the female. So long as these two wings are not equivalent in strength, the bird will not fly. Until womankind reaches the same degree as man, until she enjoys the same arena of activity, extraordinary attainment for humanity will not be realized; humanity cannot wing its way to heights of real attainment.”
Please join us for interfaith devotions, prayers, music, fellowship, cake and tea on Monday, March 9th at 7:00 pm. The building is metro-accessible via the Orange line, between the Virginia Square and Ballston stations, and is right across from Arlington Central Library. Please contact the Bahá’ís of Arlington and find out more about this devotional gathering.
