5.  Ruth Mathiang to Headline International Women’s Day Celebration – March 6, 2010, 7:30 pm – 11:00 pm

Music, fun and food are on the bill at this year’s celebration of International Women’s Day, Saturday, March 6th at The Guild in Charlottetown.

Ruth Mathiang, now living in Toronto, will make a return visit to Charlottetown for the event. Ruth is originally from Sudan, but came to PEI in 2001 to attend university here. She moved to Toronto a few years ago to pursue a graduate degree.  Today Ruth is one of the rising stars of African music in Toronto. She has two CDs to her credit. The most recent,  “Butterfly,” is a mixture of her favourite styles of music, including Hip Hop, Reggae, Afrobeat, and Gospel.

For trivia buffs, the evening will feature a distinctly feminist game – “Eve’s Quest” – that will challenge participants knowledge of women’s history, arts, myths and wisdom. The game is sure to be entertaining and fun. So here’s a question: Do you know how often women appear in trivia games, really?  The answer: Only 4% of the content for an average trivia game deals with women.

Doors open at 7:30 pm. No admission cost. All welcome. Refreshments will be served and there will be a cash bar.  For more information, contact Cooper Institute, 894-4573 or

This event is organized and made possible by the following International Women’s Day PEI Together in Courage Committee Members/ Funders:  ACIC, Cooper Institute, CUPE Global Justice Committee, CUSO-VSO, PEI Advisory Council on the Status of Women, PEI Federation of Labour, PEI InterMinisterial Women’s Secretariat, PEI Rape and Sexual Assault Centre, WUSC, and Women’s Network PEI.
