All of these activities are FREE and open to EVERYONE. From 10am to 4pm, we will be hosting two events in the CAW Commons. Ten Thousand Villages, a non-profit Fair Trade Organization will have a booth. Ten Thousand Villages markets products from handicraft and agricultural organizations based in low-income countries. 70% of the artisan groups that they support are women’s groups. We will be hosting a Living Library event as well, featuring women from traditionally male-dominated fields and professions hosting booths. Students and community members will be invited to come and walk through the booths and interact with our “Living Books”. Each person who comes to participate will be given a library card to have signed at each booth they stop at. After completing their card, they can hand it in to be entered into a draw for prizes. There will be 2 different sessions for our Living Library- 1 from 10am to 1pm, and 1 from 1pm to 4pm. Wednesday evening from 6:30-9pm, we will be screening Norma Rae as part of our theme of Women and Work in the Women’s Centre (room 291 of the CAW Centre).
