Celebrate Yom Haisha
International Women's Day
Calgary JCC invites you to celebrate Yom Haisha – International Women’s Day with us!
On March 8, people around the world will celebrate International Women’s Day. To mark the occasion, Calgary JCC is offering a number of events that are open to everyone!
How Women Challenge and Change our Laws
Mondays, March 1, 8 (IWD), and 15 | 11:30am – 1:00pm
$15 or $8 per drop-in | Register online
Register for this interesting, three-part series hosted by Toronto’s Miles Nadal JCC. Special guest speaker: Dr. Sylvia Solomon.
Over the years, women have successfully challenged and changed laws, both in the United States and Canada. Explore three landmark human rights trials:
- 1954 – Brown v Board of Education (Concerning segregation in US schools)
- 1969 – Roe v Wade (A woman’s right to choose), and
- 2015 – Carter v Canada (Giving Canadians the right to die with dignity).
Learn how “great triumphs can only come out of great trials.” To celebrate this event, pick-up an IWD goody bag at the JCC. Email Shula Banchik for more information or call 403-537-8596.

A crossword puzzle is much more than just a game – it is a place to explore and discover new ideas, associations, details and subtle language differences. International Women’s Day is an opportunity for us to come together, think about womanhood, and discuss what being a woman means today. We invite you to join a live session in which we will create a crossword puzzle and YOU will actively choose the clues and the answers.
Proceeds will be donated to the Women’s Centre of Calgary. A copy of the finalized puzzle will be published by the JCC, inviting downloaders to donate to the Women’s Centre of Calgary.
