    #WomensWave – A Symposium and Workshop


    The theme for the March this year is “Ending violence against women”,  and we are using this platform to spread awareness and raise support for the ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA).

    Many of you have asked about the Women's March 2019 in Vienna. While we’ve marched and held a rally the last two years, we're bringing it indoors on January 19, 2019 for a panel discussion and workshop about the unique forms of violence affecting migrant women, economic inequality affecting American women, and the under representation of women in power structures. We’re hoping that this format will be inclusive for the entire community and will raise awareness and provide a constructive means for advocacy. 

    We're still working on the details, but mark your calendars and save the date!

    Want to get involved? We need your help! Contact Jennifer at chair@democratsabroad.at

    Join us for a Holiday Cookie/Candy Exchange! Bring your favorite homemade holiday cookies or candies and enjoy tasting everyone's special treats before we exchange our goods!

    You'll take home at least two dozen cookies and/or candy pieces for your own holiday celebration, or to give as gifts!

    Enjoy tea, prosecco and savory bocconcini with your Democratic friends while sharing your favorite holiday treats!


    The Rules (there are always rules!):

    Each guest should bring a minimum of 2 dozen homemade cookies or candy pieces to exchange + several extras for our tasting tray, as well as your own dish or platter to display your treats.

    Please RSVP by December 12th with the type of cookie you will bring and a copy of the recipe. A full list of recipes will be distributed via email after the event.

    NB: you may be asked to switch recipes to avoid duplicates - the idea is for everyone to come away with a variety of goodies!

    We suggest you bring several smaller containers and/or plastic bags to hold the different types of goodies you’ll take home – this will help you to avoid mixing flavors.

    We look forward to seeing you there!
