Guests:

  • Heather Stringfellow of Planned Parenthood, which is also hosting an event on International Women's Day:

    • Thursday, March 8: #BirdsandtheBeehive, 4:00-5:30 p.m., swarms the Rotunda of the Utah Capitol. It's a celebration of women as well as a statement to Utah lawmakers that the Hive is here and fighting for issues important to Utah women. Join Planned Parenthood of Utah, YWCA Utah, ACLU of Utah, Alliance for a Better Utah, KRCL, Utah Decides Healthcare, and Utah Women’s Coalition to make sure our lawmakers know we are watching, and we will hold them accountable. Leading up to the event, tweet at your legislator and share your story or the reason you stand up for women’s rights in Utah with #birdsandthebeehive. For more details, click here.

  • Monique Keithanne of #HerBodi, a new Utah-based company that's creating underwear for the greater good. Check out their crowdsourcing fundraiser on IFundWomen.com. At #HerBodi, each purchase directly goes back to assisting a less fortunate woman's education on her body and easier access to sanitary menstrual products.
