Rolling with our tradition of honouring both International Women’s Day and Equal Pay Day, this panel discussion and button-making workshop brings together women in non-traditional and invisible labour for a conversation about women, visibility and work. Following the panel, participants are invited to create their own button based on themes from the event in a workshop facilitated by artist Leah Klein.

A collaboration between the Workers Arts and Heritage Centre and SACHA Hamilton.

Panelist will include Jelena Vermilion of SWAN Waterloo, Roopali Chaudhary of Lotus STEMM, Cindy Gangaram of HWETL/ETFO & more to be announced.

Refreshments will be served. Admission is free; all are welcome! We will be collecting sanitary products for women in support of Inasmuch House.
