Every month should be women’s history month — but March is the official one. Come celebrate at The Brooklyn Museum, where Target First Saturdays is hosting a free celebration of the badass women in our world. Festivities will include a performance from Brown Girls Burlesque, a feminist book club discussion of Janet Mock’s Surpassing Certainty: What My Twenties Taught Me, and a tour of Roots of “The Dinner Party”: History in the Making, the special exhibition at The Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art. Because again, it’s always a good time to celebrate women in the arts--but now you can do it for free.
