Let's Talk New Mexico 3/18 8am: March is Women’s History Month, and we are taking a look at  how the suffrage movement here in New Mexico continues to inspire activists today 

 

On the next Let’s Talk New Mexico, we’re discussing the role women have played in New Mexico's history, and  how women today continue to strive to break the glass ceiling.

 

And we want to hear from you! How are you celebrating Women’s History Month? Do you have stories you would like to share about the women in your life? How can we use this month to move forward to a more equitable future? Email letstalk@kunm.org or call in live during the show — Thursday morning at 8 on 89.9 KUNM.
