Home, work, and health, should be safe and secure for all. Hear Us.
On March 3, 2018, at 11am, we will gather for the second annual Cowichan Valley International Women’s Day Rally at Charles Hoey Park, in Duncan, BC, on the unceded territory of the Cowichan People.
In saying this, we are taking on all of it. It includes our understanding of the role of colonialism, the atrocity of the residential school system, the tragedy of child abduction, the challenges of reconciliation, and of the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women inquiry, and the need for mutual understanding and support in order to advocate for a world in which all can thrive.
International Women’s Day is truly an international event with over 100 years of history. Beginning in 1909 in the US, it swept across Europe during the early 1900’s and today is celebrated throughout the world. We meet to build a series of events advocating for women’s power, women’s rights, and for social progress for all.
The rally on March 3, will focus on the objectives of being heard, being believed, and being safe.
