We are not ready to put away their protest signs just yet...are you?

On January 21, 2017, tens of thousands of Canadians took to the streets from coast to coast, and in Washington, D.C., joining together to defend women’s equality and other causes. We know there are events across the country that women and allies need to know about. Our mission is to inspire, unite and lead the charge for the advancement of women across Canada. Any time women gather with a collective intention, it's a powerful thing. Let's see this happen across Canada!

    Victoria-left-1
    Victoria (left) is a twenty-year-old queer, black, immigrant woman currently studying at the University of Waterloo. When she was 18, she came out as queer, an action that would change her life forever. Victoria has gone on to become the first openly queer President for her school’s Black Student Association and has created the first ever service for racialized students and works on campus to address racism and xenophobia.

    Kitty Runstedler (right) is a Waterloo region local. Ten years ago Kitty was diagnosed with breast cancer and started a year long battle that shaped her life. Through her journey, she found comfort and grounding in jewelry and bracelet making. Kitty will lead us to make our own bracelets a he shares her story.

    Tickets include one non-alcoholic drink and one bracelet to make and take home. $12 of every ticket sold goes directly to support the Annual Women's March in Waterloo Region.

We thank everyone who has contributed to making this event a success, and apologize to anyone who we missed in including in the planning this year--find Women's March Victoria group on Facebook and join us for next year!

    This year features speakers at Centennial Square from the local non-profit community who will be focusing on calls to action for march attendees to help them achieve their goals this year by to support women’s equality, health, safety, representation or economic security. We have speakers from First Nations, the disabled community, Muslim women’s community, women of colour community and trans community. Organizations represented include Rainbow Health Co-op, PEERS, Victoria Immigrant and Refugee Centre, Support Network for Indigenous Women and Women of Colour and (UVic) Women in Engineering and Computer Science. We will have performances by an indigenous non-binary poet and a choral performance from the Raging Grannies. We will then march to the Parliament building and wrap-up with another choral performance from local voices.

    We are striving to make this event as diverse and inclusive as possible, if you feel you or your community might not be represented, get in touch and we will work with you to give you a platform.
