SAVE THE DATE! April 6, join NYC Women UNITE

When I received this from that formidable, wonderful organization, The Three Tomatoes (link on the right sidebar), I knew that I had to publish it. Violence against women is a worldwide problem, and anything that can be done about it is to be encouraged.
