Welcome to the “un” Dinner Party 2021

This year’s event is different from those we’ve held over the past 18 years. However, we are thankful we can all still come together, virtually, to celebrate International Women’s Day and mark the importance of our progress towards gender equality. 
Enjoy our program of speakers and music. And, please be sure to take a photo and share it with us on our social media channels (Facebook | Twitter | Instagram). We’d love to see you celebrate. 
Women of Halton Action Movement (WHAM) has been proud to present this event since 2003. It provides funding for two important charities: SAVIS and CW4WA
WHAM celebrates its 40th anniversary in 2021, having been actively advocating for women and gender equality at local, provincial and national levels since 1981.
