Monday, March 16 CANCELED Rosemarie Day: Women Leading the Way in Healthcare

6:30–8:30pm   Cambridge Main Library, Lecture Hall
With 28 million Americans uninsured, and millions more who can’t afford their coverage, Day asks the fundamental question: Can we, as a nation, do better? Day believes we can and will – once women begin to engage collectively around this topic. Day brings a feminist lens to the universal health care debate and seeks to empower more women to engage in that debate.
