Every year, Inter Pares celebrates International Women's Day through the IWD Ottawa celebration, which features the annual Femmy Awards ceremony honouring local feminist change-makers, an activist fair, powerful arts performances, and a video screening. The 2016 video was created by Inter Pares' very own Rebecca Wolsak, who is also one of the event's co-organizers. The video blends humour and serious introspection to review the past year's feminist highlights and lowlights at the local, national, and international levels, and contemplates the year to come.
