International Women's Day

Price:     $25.00


International Women's Day (March 8) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity.

International Women's Day (IWD) has been observed since the early 1900s - a time of great expansion and turbulence in the industrialized world that saw booming population growth and the rise of radical ideologies. No one government, NGO, charity, corporation, academic institution, women's network or media hub is solely responsible for International Women's Day. Many organizations declare an annual IWD theme that supports their specific agenda or cause, and some of these are adopted more widely with relevance than others.


The Junior League of Toronto strongly supports the vision of International Women’s Day. The Junior League of Toronto is an organization of women committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women and improving communities through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. Its purpose is exclusively educational and charitable.

This year we are showcasing the Canadian Premiere of the documentary film: Badass Beauty Queen.  The movie features the former Miss World Canada, Anastasia Lin, speaking about her international headline grabbing experience, her resilience and self-esteem building in the process. Anastasia will also be speaking at the event after the movie.

The new hour-long documentary is produced by Full Stride Films-a production company based in Toronto creating empowering and thought-provoking films.
