INVERMERE — International Women’s Day began in early 1900s, a time of great expansion and turbulence in the industrialized world that saw booming population growth and the rise of radical ideologies.

Annually on March 8, thousands of events are held throughout the world to inspire women and celebrate achievements.

A global web of rich and diverse local activity connects women from all around the world ranging from political rallies, business conferences, government activities and networking events through to local women’s craft markets, theatrical performances, fashion parades and more.

To celebrate this event locally please join us at the new Copper Point Resort, March 8 at 6 p.m. for an hour of yoga with Fe Saraiva from Desiderata studio, followed up with refreshments, light snacks and the showing of Yogawomen, a documentary.

All are welcome to attend this exciting and meaningful event. Attendance is by donation, with all of the proceeds going to the Women’s Services of the Family Resource Centre.

So make a difference, think globally and act locally. Come and have fun while doing your bit to ensure that the future for girls is bright, equal, safe and rewarding. For more information contact Fe at yogadesiderata@gmail.com or Pat Cope at 250-342-5566.
