International Women's Day 2017 Ottawa: The Future is Feminist

event : Celebration


Join us on March 8, 2017 for Ottawa’s biggest International Women’s Day celebration, featuring the annual Femmy Awards ceremony honouring local feminist change-makers, an activist fair, powerful arts performances, great food and drink, AND a dance party featuring DJ Seiiizmikk!


Encouraged by the recent groundswell of participation in feminist mobilizations in Canada and abroad, the theme of this year’s International Women’s Day event and Femmy Awards ceremony is “The Future is Feminist.” We are all working so hard to build that feminist future, this is an evening to pause and reflect on where we are, where we want to be and how to get there! And ultimately an evening to celebrate.

As always, the event will be free (expect for cash bar). We will also have free child care available on site! No registration required.
