International Women's Day - The Feminist Games
Enter through the feminist fair where you can challenge and hone your skills to fight for gender justice. Next, take a seat as we offer a cross-country video tour of feminist champions sharing their secrets and strategies. Finally, join the celebration as we mark the recipients of the fifth annual Femmy Awards.
This year we will be honouring Denise Jessica Freedman, Diane McIntyre, Dillon Black, Hollaback! Ottawa and Marian De Vries for their outstanding contributions to the struggle for women’s equality.
The event is free, with a cash bar. Free childcare is available on site.
The Feminist Games is organized by Oxfam Canada, Amnesty International Canada, Canadian Federation of University Women, Inter Pares, Ottawa Coalition to End Violence Against Women, Planned Parenthood Ottawa, Women’s Legal Education and Action Fund Ottawa, and World University Services of Canada.
