The PEI Advisory Council on the Status of Women invites community members to join together in celebrating International Women’s Day on March 8 from 3–5 pm at the Charlottetown Library Learning Centre.

A variety of performers will be sharing their music, dance and traditions, including Monelli Rahmatian demonstrating Persian dance and instructing basic movements. 

There will also be a number of speakers sharing their work in advancing women and girls, IWD gifts, a children’s corner with books and activities, and as usual, refreshments will be provided. 

The afternoon will conclude with everyone invited to sing the feminist anthem, “Bread & Roses,” led by Shannon Scales. 

People of all genders are welcome to this free event. Connect and reconnect in friendship, allyship and celebration to accelerate gender equality.
