International Women's Day In Terrace

3/8/2018

Today marks International Women's Day, and with celebrations happening all across the world.. The Terrace Women's Resource centre is having a celebration of their own.

"We're holding an event this evening at the art gallery, recognizing successful women in business, poets, musicians, and local women in general. That really excites me to know people are coming together in that sense." Said Adrianne Davidson, the Program Director of the  Terrace Women's Resource Centre.

Davidson continued to say this year's celebration feels different than previous years-- due to everything going on relating to the "Me Too", and "Time's Up" movements which aim to bring attention to the widespread prevalence of sexual assault and harassment.

Tonight's Women's Day celebration gets going at 6 o'clock at the Terrace Art Gallery.

A wide range of topics will be brought to the forefront by guest speakers, including looking at women having success in business and life in general.
