International Women’s Day: Women on the Bridge All Welcome! Friday, March 6, 2020 at 12 pm – 1 pm

Location: 10C Shared Space – 42 Carden Street, Guelph, ON

Hosted by Guelph-Wellington Women in Crisis, Zonta Club of Guelph & CFUW Guelph

ALL ARE WELCOME! Come on your own. Bring your family and friends. Take a lunch break and gather your co-workers. Take this event as a great opportunity to surround yourself with amazing people for an empowering afternoon.
The women around us deserve to be appreciated.
You are invited to participate in an annual celebration of women and their achievements at Women On The Bridge, Guelph.
This event begins at 12 NOON with a welcoming at 10C, then invites participants to march to the Norfolk bridge (entering from both sides) and uniting in the middle to pause and reflect on their own achievements as well as others and together strike an “Equality Pose” for a photo.
PLEASE NOTE: the entrances to the bridge are not accessible and we invite those unable to do the steps to cheer, wave and participate from the meeting location.
Following the photo opportunity, guests are encouraged with their signs, banners, and noisemakers to gather at Market Square for a unity dance initiate by V-Day for 1 Billion Rising.
After we shake up the square all are welcome to join together at 10C in the Heritage Room for snacks and refreshments.
As a great addition this year the organizers would like to create a women’s community weave inspired by the great work of our local Hospice and your input to what feminism means to you and the value of International Women’s Day would be appreciated in the activity.
If you have any questions or concerns about the event please feel free to reach out to Jessica at [email protected]
