The Parksville-Qualicum chapter of the Canadian Federation of Women will host an International Women’s Day event on Sunday, March 8.
The theme for the event is ‘helping one another come home,’ and guest speaker Dr. Louise Mandell will be speaking about broadening women’s rights. The poster for the event says she will be talking on “identifying and overcoming challenges through the lens of her own experience.” Mandell is an Indigenous rights lawyer and VIU Chancellor, who is an expert in Indigenous law and treaty rights.
Doors to the event are at 1:30 p.m. and the event is from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Parksville Community Centre at 132 Jensen Ave E. Admission is by donation. Refreshments and more will be available.
