In Commemoration of International Women’s Day Sharing Traditions of How Women Celebrate

Two Canadian Clubs, CFUW Nepean and CFUW Ottawa, invite: Graduate Women International (GWI) members from around the world to take part in a Peer-to-Peer Conversation on the nature of celebrations across cultures. International Women’s Day is our day, so we wish to take this opportunity to learn about and appreciate each other, focusing on the contributions women make to the traditions and festivities that enrich our lives. This discussion will center on celebrations for, and/or created by, women. Participants are invited to bring an item to share during their conversations.


When: Mar 11, 2022 10:00 AM Eastern Time (US and Canada)

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.

What is celebrated in your culture in which women play a central role? This might be a celebration for women or prepared by women and it might be a large festival or an intimate family gathering. For this interactive Peer-to Peer Conversation, you may wish to bring with you to share some aspect of a celebration in your culture – such as an object, photograph, piece of clothing, recipe, song, or story.

It is hoped that we will learn about the different roles that women play in celebrations across the globe. It is also hoped that we will better recognize the enduring commonalities that underlie our diverse traditions and appreciate why celebrations are important and meaningful in all of our lives.
