In Paris, back in 2008, Sophie commenced working on an event that would bring women together in a supportive collaborative way. The first event took place at La Scene Bastille in July of that year. Following that, Sophie launched Every Woman Festival in Sydney Australia on the 100th Anniversary of International Women’s Day, 2011. The event now runs annually in three different cities, has outreach programs and other events, and is spreading every year.
This year, Every Woman Festival will take place on the 12th March in Edmonton, Canada, on 13th March in Calgary, Canada and on 19th March in Sydney Australia. Check out the website for more details!
