Tour is sure to satisfy!
The women’s movement has come a long way in Canada. It’s only been one hundred years since Canadian women were given the right to vote in 1918. Since that time women have progressed in leaps and bounds politically, socially and personally. Instead of having to be accompanied out of doors like our foremothers a century ago, women now adventure solo all over the world. 

Today’s girls are not held back by notions of traditional gender roles; they define themselves. Gone is the rule book on what it means to be a proper lady. If you ask a young woman today what limits them, she would likely say limits are self-imposed. This generation subscribes to the idea that the one true responsibility in life is fulfilling one’s potential. And, adventure is a huge test of that potential. 

In the hourlong compilation of short films, you will witness how women challenge their incredible skills and audacity in various sports, including biking, climbing, slack-lining, surfing and back country skiing. Afterwards, you will be treated to a panel discussion with inspiring women who use their physical gifts to help others in need. Each of these women believes in purposeful play, where physical movement and discipline define their leadership.
