International Women's Day 2018 Ottawa: Hashtags & Beyond

event : Celebration


Join us on March 8, 2018 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!

Five Ottawa-area feminist leaders will be recognized for their outstanding contributions toward advancing women’s human rights and gender equality at the tenth annual International Women’s Day Ottawa event. 

The theme of this year’s event is Hashtags & Beyond in recognition of the groundswell of brave women, transgender and non-binary people who continue to raise their voices to challenge oppression, sexual misconduct and other injustices in order to pave the way for a more equal and inclusive future for all. 

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