Events in Winnipeg:

March 8, 1:00 pm
Portage Place

Self-identified women, girls and theirs allies in Winnipeg will be marching in celebration of the 104th International Women’s Day (IWD).
All genders and ages welcomed, families encouraged!

We will be marching in solidarity with the struggles of all women in Canada, and all over the world. Participants are invited to celebrate the successes, accomplishments, resilience and strength of women in their lives. On IWD, we pay heed to the historical and current consciousness-raising, community-building, and organizing work carried out by caregivers, suffragettes, politicians, reproductive choice advocates, environmentalists, Indigenous rights activists, and labour activists, alike. 

We will march in solidarity with the self-identified women and girls whose lives are undervalued, who face political, economic, emotional, psychological, verbal, sexual, or physical violence, who cannot get decent work, who live and work in conditions that endanger their lives. 

Raising Our Voices: Celebrating International Women's Day
March 8, Doors open at 6:40 / 7:00 pm

Come join us for a special evening to recognize the work and contributions of women around the world.
