As we join the rest of the world to mark International Women’s Day, this Thursday, March 8, 2018, all week, www.calitown.com, in a series of articles written by four carefully selected women, will attempt to address in its simplest form, some of the ways gender disparities play out against women. We are putting out this offering because we recognize the enormous contributions of women to the evolution and development of our society, especially the active roles they continue to play in this direction. Watch out for the articles beginning tomorrow, March 6, 2018. Better not miss their incisive articles.
Please meet our first two female guest columnists!
