Join us for an evening with one of Canada's pre-eminent human rights activists. In her new book, Ascent of Women, journalist Sally Armstrong shows us why women and girls are the way forward and introduces us to the leading women who are making change happen, from Nobel Prize winners to little girls suing for justice.
