Celebrate voices of women Friday

InternationalWomensDayPrince Edward County women are invited to “Find Your Voice – Discover Your Choices” at this year’s International Women’s Day celebration.

The 2013 celebration Friday, March 8th event is set to take place at Prince Edward Collegiate Institute from 6 – 7:30 p.m. This year the committee has decided to focus on a celebration of women’s voices.
“Find Your Voice – Discover Your Choices is the theme for the evenings’ celebration”, said Ange Stever, IWD committee member. “Following with the intended theme, the evening will feature music from Miss Emily, Jeanette Arsenault and a women’s drumming circle, poetry readings, local art display and dance.”
Local organizations such as the Recreation Outreach Center and its Girls’ Rock-It program have been invited to set up information booths to promote their programs.

The PEC IWD committee will be accepting donations for both the Picton and Wellington food banks as well as the local Puppets Without Borders project.

“Everyone is welcome to join us for the celebration,” said Lyndsay Richmond, IWD committee chair. “It will be a wonderful evening with amazing talent. The committee would be so happy to see a big crowd attend on March 8th in support of women locally and globally.”

Since its birth in the socialist movement, International Women’s Day has grown to become a global day of recognition and celebration across developed and developing countries alike. Each year around the world, International Women’s Day (IWD) is celebrated on March 8. Thousands of events occur not just on this day but throughout the month to mark the economic, political and social achievements of women.
