Celebrating the achievements of women with "Donuts and Documentaries"

By  | 

RAPID CITY, S.D. (KEVN) - On Sunday people in Rapid City were celebrating Women's History Month with "Donuts and Documentaries."

Staff at the Rapid City Public Library needed to bring out extra chairs for the viewing of a Ruth Bader Ginsburg film, or RBG.

The documentary features the life of the 84-year-old and how she fought for women's equality during her time as a U.S. Supreme Court Justice.

However, Dorothy "Rowdy" Brewick, an activist with Gather the Women says the fight isn't over yet.

"At this time in the history of the United States, some of our successes are eroding and so we really have to be vigilant. Just because you make progress does not mean it's going to stay in place. So we have to watch daily, weekly, monthly, yearly to protect women's equality," Brewick said.

Gather the Women is an international organization with a local chapter in Rapid City.

They meet the fourth Saturday of every month.
