Local Brews + Global Views ft. The MATCH International Women’s Fund

February 7, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join us for a special International Development Week edition of Local Brews + Global Views with Nuala Nazarko and Kristie Pearson of The MATCH International Women’s Fund.

Each year, over 15 million girls are married off before the age of 18. Women in some countries are arrested for driving cars, attending sporting events, having a miscarriage, wearing pants, or leaving an abusive marriage. Women and trans* human rights defenders have been gunned down in their own homes, beat up by law enforcement officers and threatened in the streets — just for standing up for their rights.

So, this International Development Week, we’re bringing people Together for Gender Equality by looking at global gender inequality and by encouraging Manitobans to be changemakers who advance equality in the world.

Join us at Thom Bargen for a cup of locally brewed coffee and hear how women and girls around the globe are innovating at the grassroots for positive change in their communities.

We’ll provide the snacks while Nuala and Kristie lead the discussion. We encourage your questions and insights as we look at how the MATCH International Women’s Fund works at the intersection of women’s rights and innovation, providing funds and visibility to gutsy grassroots women’s organizations around the world.
