She Matters 4 Canada

2017 marks the fourth year of CBM’s She Matters Campaign which seeks to highlight global gender inequity. Past years have focused on girl education, microcredit for women entrepreneurs, and empowering female leaders. She Matters 4 Canada will focus on issues facing Indigenous women in Canada. CBM has invited singer/songwriter and Indigenous Leader

Cheryl Bear from the Nadleh Whut’en community in Northern British Columbia, to be our She Matters spokesperson for this upcoming year. Cheryl is an award-winning performer and educator who shares stories of Indigenous life — the joy, sorrow, faith, and journey.

You are invited to join Cheryl and CBM for a special evening of song and story, which will inspire and challenge Canadian Baptists to advocate on behalf of Aboriginal women in Canada and marginalized women around the world.
