The free event will also include a range of workshops designed to unite and enhance the women’s cultural and educational experiences; from drums, journaling, yoga, belly dancing and photography to life coaching, as well as the premiere of the multi-award winning women’s film ‘The Moon Inside You.’

Rachel Cline, one of the organizers said, “I am so excited to be involved in this new and wonderful event for the women of the Elk Valley. As a newcomer to the Fernie community it is so exciting to see such companionship and sisterhood amongst the women of the Elk Valley. I have been involved in IWD events back in the UK for the last few years, and being able to continue with similar events here is very exciting for me.”
