International Women’s Day In Edmonds
On Sunday, March 8, 2020, communities across the country and around the world will celebrate International Women’s Day. While there will be many events throughout Seattle and Greater Puget Sound, I want to do something special here in our community.
Our inagural events in 2019 was a great success, and I’m excited to present our 2nd Annual International Women’s Day in Edmonds.
While we are still in the planning phases, there are four anchor events being planned:
Ladies Who Brunch
11:30am – 1:30pm Location: TBD
90 minute networking lunch and learn session where women in our community (entrepreneurs, business owners, neighborhood leaders, etc.) will actively connect and engage in conversation. There will also be a guest speaker/presentation on how we can continue to come together and support each other in business, community service and leadership.
Hall of Heroines
Edmonds Yacht Club Time : TBD
The Hall of Heroines will be an interactive activity where girls and women of all ages can visit and chat with a diverse group of local women heroes (police, fire, business, civic and community leaders).
Free Your Mind
Edmonds Yacht Club Time: TBD
Free Your Mind is an opportunity to hear viewpoints from various Edmonds women on topics that hit close to home for them, along with two featured speakers around the #EachforEqual theme. There will also be a short open-mic session.
LunaFest Film Festival (hosted by Girls on The Run Snohomish County)
LUNAFEST is a national traveling film festival that features short films by, for and about women. LUNAFEST is designed so that one person can easily make a significant difference in the lives of women. The films are selected by an outside board of advisors comprised of notables in the film industry. The films are recommended for those 14+.
All proceeds from this event will benefit Girls on the Run of Snohomish County, an organization dedicated to inspiring girls to be joyful, healthy, and confident. At Girls on the Run we inspire girls to recognize their inner strength and celebrate what makes them one of a kind. Learn more about us by visiting our website.
If you are interested in being a partner or co-sponsor of these events, please contact Alicia Crank at firstname.lastname@example.org.
History of International Women’s Day:
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 occurred for well over a century, with the first IWD gathering in 1911 supported by over a million people in Austria, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland. Prior to this the Socialist Party of America, United Kingdom’s Suffragists and Suffragettes, and further groups campaigned for women’s equality.
