Prince George, B.C. – Two weeks of celebrating  the contribution women  make to Canadian society are now ,officially, underway  in Prince George.

Entitled “Inspiring Women Among Us” the  event is meant to not only acknowledge  women who are inspiring,  but to inspire others.

Dr. Annie Booth, Professor of Ecosystem Science and Management  is one of the organizers of this year’s event which is larger than the inaugural event held last year.  “It was meant to be much smaller than last year” says Booth, “But people kept coming to us with great ideas.”  The end result is 40 events packed into the two weeks.

Those events include  workshops, artistic events and four film screenings  between now and November 30th. All of the events are open to the public and all.are free.

The  celebrations wrap up  with  a  solemn  ceremony on November 30th  at UNBC’s Wintergarden to recognize the National  Day of  Remembrance  and Action  on Violence Against  Women.

The two weeks have been officially declared  “Inspiring  Women Among Us” weeks  in the City of Prince George.
