International Women's Day is an annual event that began in New York City around the turn of the twentieth century. Initially it sought to raise awareness of the achievements of women. In 1908, on this day, 15,000 women marched in New York City for better pay, working conditions, and an end to child labor. The day became a recognized holiday in many newly socialist countries over the next several years, but ironically fell off the radar, by and large, in the US, until the late 1960s.

Join us on Sunday, March 8th, beginning at 6 AM, as KBOO volunteers honor the contributions of women to art and culture, and raise awareness of the issues that continue to challenge us to action. With 21 hours of special programming produced by women, featuring information and music of the women of the world, and our own backyard.

Wednesday Special: 15th anniversary of the Hebron massacre

Wednesday Special: 15th anniversary of the Hebron massacre
In this special, we look at the Israeli settler movement, and some of its more extreme elements.  February 25th, 2009 marks the 15th anniversary of the Hebron massacre, in which 29 Palestinians praying in a mosque were gunned down by an Israeli settler named Baruch Goldstein, who was a follower of Rabbi Meir Kahane.  That massacre, which took place soon after the Oslo peace accords, which were supposed to bring peace, shattered the possibility of the peace process actually working.  Soon after the Hebron massacre, the first Palestinian suicide bomber entered Israel to kill Israeli civilians.

And since that 1994 attack, the Israeli expansion of settlements in the West Bank increased exponentially, with over 300,000 Israelis now living in new developments that the indigenous Palestinian population whose land was expropriated to build them.
