International Women’s Rights Day, March 8, will be celebrated in a festive and unifying way at La rue des Femmes, notably through a live art activity, led by Marion and Amélie, LrdF interns. This will be a moment to create a space for sharing between the workers, the interns and women in a state of homelessness, to imagine the world of tomorrow. A world that will be egalitarian, safe, inclusive, supportive and relational.
On this special day, several local businesses have decided to support La rue des Femmes with various initiatives. You can join this solidarity movement by creating your own initiative on our A Spark from the Heart platform!
