For an entire day, KBOO Community Radio highlights a variety of news, public affairs, music, theater, poetry or spoken word programming by women in celebration of March - Women's History Month. Part of what makes this programming special is the variety of perspectives and conversations that it includes, like this piece by Delphine Criscenzo (host, producer, and engineer for the Bread and Roses Collective:) read here.
