CFUW Headwaters Annual Persons Day Celebration
October 19, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
Calling all Headwaters Women & Girls! You are cordially invited to CFUW Headwater’s 5th annual Persons Day Celebration to honour women in local leadership. Learn about the 93rd anniversary of the Famous Five’s landmark legal case which granted personhood to women in Canada (but not all of them – that would come later). Network with the 2022 Women’s Caucus: Women municipal candidates, incumbents, and alumni from municipalities across the region – and take this opportunity to thank them for their service to our community! Be a ‘fly on the wall’ at this year’s ‘Kitchen Table Talk’ as four women municipal Councillor candidates from Orangeville – representing different ages, stages, and walks of life – open up about themselves and what it means to them to show up as role models to women and girls in our community. Note that this is not an election forum, but rather a celebration of women in local leadership. Across Dufferin-Caledon, women candidates represent only 31% of those running for municipal office in 2022. Win or lose, women vying for public office normalize the presence of women on the ballot – and that’s something to celebrate!
