Upcoming-Event MCIC Making a Difference Video Launch

Hi everyone,

Manitoba Council for International Cooperation (MCIC) has done 8 videos on the topic of International Development, particularly highlighting activities supporting women and girls. UN Women is part of this - and here is how you can help - The video with the most views receives $250.00, which isn't much, but it also raises awareness about UN Women. With our Local to Global coming up (yes we have a date! APRIL 11), and place (VISCOUNT GORT), and theme ("The Impact of War and Peace on Women: Through the Eyes of a Journalist"), this is good timing for people to learn a bit about UN Women.

So please view and encourage everyone you know to see it too!!
If you can come to the Leg. on Wednesday, at 11:30 am, the videos will be shown then.

Thanks as always for your support - hope you like the video and please share!

Violence against women is not solely a woman’s issue. It diminishes each and every one of us. We need to come together to end it. By coming together, by standing up against violence against women, we will come closer to peace, justice and equality.   - Michelle Bachelet, Executive Director, UN Women
