Women’s History Month in Philly: Here’s how to celebrate in 2024

Women's History Month in Philly

The month of March marks the first day of spring, the anticipated arrival of daylight savings time, and of course, International Women’s Day — March 8 — and Women’s History Month. And if you’re looking to celebrate the latter, we’ve rounded up plenty of opportunities around the City of Sisterly Love.

Huda and Aaji’s

Huda and Aaji’s have found a tasty way to celebrate Women’s History Month in Philly. Poorva and Rajus Korde from Aaji’s and Chef Yehuda Sichel from Huda have partnered up to collaborate on a special sandwich while raising money for Philadelphia’s Sisterly Love Collective.

As a release notes, from Monday, March 18, through Friday, March 22, Huda will be offering a special sandwich with breaded fluke, Aaji’s Spicy Lonsa, pickled daikon, lettuce, and garlic aioli on a toasted milk bun. The sandwich costs $15, and will be available during lunch and dinner at Huda.

Hyatt Centric and InLiquid 

This WHM activation is from another partnership, this time from Hyatt Centric Center City Philadelphia and InLiquid, a female-founded and led nonprofit arts organization. The venues have merged to showcase a new exhibit from local artist Jasmine Alleger, with the official kick-off set for this Thursday, March 7, with a “Meet the Maker” opening reception from 6 to 8 p.m.

The showcase includes two separate bodies of Alleger’s work: The first, titled ‘A Month of Breakfast,’ is a collection of paintings depicting every breakfast Alleger had in August 2012, while ‘Rock N’ Roll Philadelphia’ is a pandemic-rooted project documenting lockdown-shuttered independent music venues in Philly. As a release notes, the reception is open to the public and free to attend, and the exhibit will be on display through the end of April.
