Whistler’s Celebration of International Day of the Girl

Dropping the F* Bomb: Why We All Need to Re-Claim Feminism

Saturday October 13, 2018

Arts Whistler, 4335 Blackcomb Way

 

In celebration of International Day of the Girl, join us for a light-hearted look at how to be a proud feminist with humorist writer Elizabeth Renzetti and a panel of Whistler teens, intent on exploring why standing up and speaking out might be more important than ever.

Doors open at 5:30 pm with a bar, silent auction, and 50/50 draw. The show is from 6 pm – 7:30 pm. Suggested age is 12+.

Tickets are $10 and available online: http://ticketzone.com/dayofthegirl2018

 

Background

A group of passionate volunteers has brought the Sea-to-Sky community together in Whistler to celebrate the United Nations-recognized International Day of the Girl each year since 2013. The five previous events each motivated and inspired a sold-out theatre of 250 people and collectively raised over $15,000 for charity partners – <http://hswc.ca/> Howe Sound Women’s Centre and <http://www.onehorizon.net/> One Horizon.  Both organizations focus on the protection, education, and entrepreneurial support of girls and women and we are proud to partner with them again for 2018.

Special thanks to the volunteer team that make this happen each year: Maja Ronneberger, Kevani Macdonald, Danielle Kristmanson, and Dee Raffo.
