Thank you for joining us to celebrate International Women’s Day. Empowering Women - Empowering Humanity.
We want to thank all the outstanding performers and speakers who made this event successful including: Circles of Rhythm, Cowtown Opera, Bhriomhar Irish Dance, Urban Curvz Theatre, Chantal Chagnon, Polanie Dance, Mayor Nenshi, our keynote speaker Barb Simic and our MC Angela Kokott.
We would like to acknowledge Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada, the main funder of this event. We also received support from United Way of Calgary and Area.
Though International Women's Day celebrates the achievements of women, we do have a long way to go. Some of the biggest issues that women still face today include wage disparity, reproductive rights and violence against women.
