International Women's Day & One Billion Rising | March 8th, 2014

You are invited to join us as we mark International Women’s Day & 1Billion Rising in a joint effort on March 8, 2014.

The amalgamation of International Women’s Day and One Billion Rising is a day to celebrate the inspirational and brave work women around the world are doing to secure women’s and girl’s rights and create better and equitable societies. It is also a day to reflect on the work that remains and remember the many women whose voices go unheard and who continue to be excluded from realizing their full potential. One Billion Rising will turn the world stage into an arena for events worldwide, asking women and girls to find or organize an event in their community, and stop, gather, dance and celebrate the right of all women and girls to live peacefully and free from violence.


This is a combined partnership from various organizations here in Abbotsford and Mission including:

The Reach Gallery Museum, GirlKIND Foundation, The Centre for Indo-Canadian Studies at UFV, The Fraser Valley Coalition for Women, Abbotsford Community Services, Women’s Resource Society of the Fraser Valley, Christine Lamb House, The International Centre for Criminal Law Reform and Criminal Justice Policy & Unifor (Local 114)
