About this Walk

It’s no secret that girls experience issues unique to their gender. Come join us for our fourth annual Girls Walking Tour, where girls from the Girl Programs at the Women’s Centre will tell you all about the issues that girls in Calgary are facing, as well as the changes they envision to create communities that are more supportive of them! Girls will engage walk participants in discussions related to variety of topics. In previous years, girls between the grades of 5-12 have spoken about issues such as: school dress codes, violence against women and girls, and body image. All genders and ages are invited to join us on this walk, which will start at the Women’s Centre (39-4th Street NE) at 6:30pm on Friday, May 4th.
