A business owner in St. Brieux is taking her message of empowerment for women across the province this summer, including stops in Northeast Saskatchewan.
Sask Sisterhood held its panel discussion and social event in Tisdale Aug 7, which means organizer Amanda Perrot is halfway through her seven-week road trip which includes 16 events across Saskatchewan. Perroq told northeastNOW the inspiration for her tour came from her own support system.
“I have four biological sisters and a lot of close friends, so I know what it’s like to feel genuine support from other women,” Perrot said.
Andrea Lutz, who owns the Sweet Cup Café where Sask Sisterhood held its Tisdale event, has held her own events similar to Perrot’s in the last. Lutz said she was all in on hosting because she feels it’s important for women to support and encourage each other through challenges, including family relationships, motherhood, mental health, and business.
“The face you present to the world doesn’t necessarily tell the whole story,” Lutz said. “I think it was encouraging for people to hear that not everyone’s life is always perfect.”
After going from hosting two events in Melfort a few years ago to her current province-wide tour, Perrot said the next step would be helping women across Saskatchewan host their own events similar to Sask Sisterhood, and hopefully expand the tour into B.C. and Alberta.
Sask Sisterhood stops in Nipawin Thursday, Aug 7.
