International Women’s Day is coming March 8

One Billion Rising is the biggest mass action to end violence against women

The Campbell River and NI Transition Society and the Women’s Centre is going to hold a celebration on March 2, to celebrate International Women’s Day.

Join them at Rose Harbour, 1116 Dogwood St at 11:30 a.m. They will begin by participating in the “One billion rising campaign” by dancing for justice to “Break the Chain.” One Billion Rising is the biggest mass action to end violence against women in human history. The campaign began as a call to action based on the staggering statistic that 1-in-3 women on the planet will be beaten or raped during her lifetime. With the world population at seven billion, this adds up to more than one billion women and girls.  After the dance, join in a lunch, cake and tea where there will also be a presentation to Valery Puetz with the Women of Distinction Award for 2015.
