The Women’s Resource Center is hosting the annual International Women’s Day luncheon at noon Saturday at the Flin Flon Community Hall. Their Executive Director Colleen Arnold says this year’s theme is Influential Women Agents of Change with guest speaker Member of Parliament Niki Ashton. She says Niki has been a strong voice for equality in Parliament and she has spoken out on poverty throughout her political career and is calling for action to end third world conditions facing aboriginal people. Arnold adds Niki is a strong voice for gender equality and human rights and they are inviting her to come to talk about her life journey and how she got to where she is today as they want to inspire women and girls in the community to take on leadership roles and enter into politics.
Tickets are 15 dollars and are available at Northern Rainbows End, the Orange Toad and the Women’s Resource Center.
