International Women’s Day (IWD) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. Since the first event in 1911, millions of people around the world have been gathering to raise awareness and further women’s equality. The Comox Valley event is the brainchild of Letz Sing’s Tina Filippino who, in 2019, wanted to create a local event that would bring all people together for a day of solidarity where women could celebrate women. “I gathered some of the most talented women I know from the valley, and we got right to work!” says Filippino. “We each brought something unique to the show, and the response was so enthusiastic, we knew it was the start of something much bigger.”
