Women from Manitoulin Island and the North Shore corridor will be taking part in a virtual International Women’s Day presentation.
Up to 80 participants will be taking in the advice of keynote speaker, author and women’s advocate, Julie Lalonde.
Lalonde is an internationally recognized women’s rights advocate and public educator.
She holds a BA and MA in Canadian Studies and Women’s Studies from Carleton University and will be focusing on healing from intimate partner violence.
The seminar also includes a presentation by Susie Harrison of Bare Naked Beauty with a skin care tutorial.
The annual event is usually held on the Island and in Espanola in person, but due to COVID-19 the Mnidoo Mnising Coalition Against Domestic Violence, based in the local area, is hosting the celebration of women virtually.
