International Women's Day: The Role of Motherhood In Society & Social Movements


Happy International Women's Day!!
I celebrated the day by watching a live virtual event
presented by First Partner Jennifer Siebel Newsom
& California Museum. 
See the following description about this event below.

Happy International Women’s Day! Join First Partner Jennifer Siebel Newsom for a virtual discussion on the role of motherhood in society and social movements TODAY at 1:30 pm!

Special guests include Dr. Shirley N. Weber, the first African American California Secretary of State, and Anna Malaika Tubbs, author of the book “The Three Mothers: How the Mothers of Martin Luther King, Jr., Malcolm X and James Baldwin Shaped a Nation.” Both guests’ achievements are highlighted in updates for Women’s History Month to our signature exhibit “Women Inspire: California Women Changing Our World,” which will be featured in today’s livestream.
I really enjoyed watching this 30 minute
program featuring Dr. Shirley N. Weber
& Anna Malaika Tubbs.
Below is a YouTube video of their talk.
Fast forward to 24 minutes, 29 seconds to view
the start of the program!


  1. It is nice that there is a day to celebrate the accomplishments of women, although I can't say that I did anything in particular to acknowledge the day. I've heard quite a lot of positive comment about the "three mothers" book. It certainly sounds like a worthwhile read.

  2. If I can squeeze it in, I would like to watch this.
