|Sanctioned by the United Nations, International Women’s Day on March 8th is a global celebration of women’s rights, needs, wants, and dreams. It is a time to reflect on progress made, to call for change and to celebrate acts of courage and determination by ordinary women who have played an extraordinary role in the history of their countries and communities.
This year’s theme, “Equality for women is progress for all” emphasizes how gender equality, empowerment of women, women’s full enjoyment of human rights and the eradication of poverty are essential to economic and social development. It also stresses the vital role of women as agents of development.
But truth be told, most women don’t yet know what that fully means:
A hundred years ago, women around the world were not considered “a person” by law. We couldn’t vote, own property, or run for office (let alone run our own companies) ... we couldn’t even have a bank account. Our fathers and husbands possessed us. (Yes, we were possessions under the law.)
Over the last fifty years, more and more women are stepping into their power, but there are still millions of women around the world who live in oppression.
It is time for us women to understand what it means to be truly empowered, and to celebrate and encourage that strength in each other.
We invite you to join us in Toronto on March 7th for an extraordinary International Women’s Day event called, “The Enchanted Evening” hosted by best-selling authors, mystical storytellers, and sage advisors, Crystal Andrus and Colette Baron-Reid.
Toronto has never seen anything like this before! Dance, song, spoken word, messages from spirit, readings from the stage, and a call to step into your most powerful Self, will leave you remembering this night as one of the most important days of your life.
The festivities begin at 5pm with a delectable dining experience at House of Moments Restaurant and Lounge -- Toronto’s only art oriented venue that features a sensational delicate Eastern Fusion Cuisine. (Both meat and vegetarian entrées available.)
The atmosphere that awaits you is a harmonious far away land that will be your escape for the evening. As you walk through the ancient historic doors, you will know you are in for treat for all your senses.
|At 7pm, Crystal Andrus — a woman’s advocate, 4 time best-selling author, master presenter, and founder of The S.W.A.T. Institute, the world’s only Personal Empowerment Coaching Certification program exclusively for women—kicks off the evening entertainment, accompanied by singer/songwriter, Natalie Hughes. Get ready to have your heart opened like never before with Crystal’s inspiring message, quick wit, and profound wisdom, along with Natalie’s angelic voice and lyrics.
