1 Billion Rising / International Women's Day

Rowan House Society is getting set for it's 4th annual 1 Billion Rising march. 

Did you know? 1 in 3 women on the planet will be raped or beaten during their lifetime. 

That's 1 Billion Women and Girls. 

Meet us in the Okotoks United Church parking lot (43 Riverside Drive) by 4:30pm on March 8th to join us as we march through downtown Okotoks, to call for an end to gender-based violence. The 2018 theme is Solidarity. Together we rise against all forms of violence and oppression.
