Grrrlfest 2007: Diversity
Mar 5, 2007
Hello, Bonjourno, Selam!
From March 5th to 8th, the UTSC Women's Centre is celebrating
International Women's Day with Grrrlfest: Four days of workshops,
presentations, guest lectures, music, art, fun!
This year we're celebrating diversity by examining the unique
characteristics that shape women's lives, contribute to their
successes or cause inequitable barriers.
We hope you take this chance to learn more about women's
issues! All workshops will have yummy snacks, will be in
comfy settings and delivered by engaging facilitators. Check out
the agenda below, or for more information on facilitators or
organizations, visit the Grrrlfest website:
Mach 8, International Women's Day will be one big party! Here's a
chance to celebrate ourselves or the wonderful women in our lives and
in the world. A tireless champion of women's rights, the
Honourable Carolyn Bennett, Member of Parliament, will be the keynote
speaker to kick it all off!! Grrrlz Unplugged (7:00pm-9:30pm @
the Rez Centre) will feature really awesome female talent in music,
comedy and art, not to mention yummy food from around the world!
All events are free! Spread the word, bring your friends, and
celebrate with us next week!
