On Saturday, March 14th, Gabriela Network-Los Angeles of the Mariposa Alliance will host "A Mile in Her Shoes: Honoring Women Defenders." The political art and fashion show will highlight the lives of women who defend women's and human rights, honor everyday heroes in our communities, and comment on the plight of women and children today.


"A Mile in Her Shoes: Honoring Women Defenders" is the 6th of annual political fashion shows GABNet-Los Angeles has hosted; each year, different issues women face are addressed, ranging from sex trafficking, to workers' rights, to domestic violence. This year, as the global economy sinks deeper into crisis, political repression concurrently rises. Women who struggle to survive through poverty and marginalization turn to political activism as a vehicle to change their realities, and they are punished for their resistance. GABNet and its community partners – women's, community, youth, labor, and non-profit groups – will honor the brave women who defend their rights and their people's rights.


P lease join GABNet and its partners at "A Mile in Her Shoes: Honoring Women Defenders." Admission is free, and all justice-loving people are invited to join us. A silent auction of all fashion show pieces will follow. Photo opportunities will be available.



Date: Saturday, March 14th

Time: 5:00 p.m.

Pre-Show: 4:30 p.m.

Location: Eagle Rock Plaza, Center Court; 2700 Colorado Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90041
