New tours mark International Women's Day at Canadian Museum for Human Rights
Museum will have free admission, performances by Sarasvati Productions on March 6
The Canadian Museum for Human Rights is highlighting the journey toward gender equality with special 75-minute tours this week.
To mark International Women's Day, the museum is hosting women's rights tours each day from March 3-10.
Interpretive program developer Angeliki Bogiatji said the tours focus on women's rights, achievements and work toward change.
"I really hope that people get to learn more stories — more women's stories, and their achievements in Canada and abroad," she said.
The exhibits and tours will cover historical events and some more recent work toward change.
"I hope visitors will also realize how much work needs to be done along the long path to gender equality," Bogiatji said.
On March 6, the museum will have free admission from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., and there will be monologues, music and spoken word performances by Sarasvati Productions artists throughout the museum.
International Women's Day is March 8.
