Dr. Sally Armstrong
"The Power of One"


Please join us, for an evening with internationally renowned writer and human rights activist, Sally Armstrong. Weaving together the stories of Afghan and Canadian women, Dr. Armstrong will speak from her first-hand experience as a human rights advocate and journalist. Having witnessed human rights tragedies, both locally and globally, Dr. Armstrong's aim is to empower her audience to use their own voices to make change:

"It was women's voices that changed the status quo in Canada and it was women around the world, connected by e-mail, who long before September 11th 2001, mounted the charge to free their sisters in Afghanistan from the human rights catastrophe they'd been facing under the Taliban regime."

Dr Sally Armstrong, is the UNICEF Canada Special Representative to Afghanistan, a Member of the Order of Canada, a human rights activist, documentary filmmaker, and award-winning author and journalist. She holds an honorary doctorate in law from Royal Roads University. Former editor-in-chief of Homemakers Magazine from 1988 to 1999, editor-at-large of Chatelaine, and contributing editor to Macleans, Sally is a passionate advocate for the rights of women and children.
