A privilege to attend last night’s DocNYC Film Festival premiere of CITY OF JOY. The film tells the story of a remarkable centre, City of Joy, in Eastern Democratic Republic of Congo, where women who have suffered horrific abuse learn to be leaders. The documentary also explores the friendships between Dr. Denis Mukwege (2016 Nominee for the Nobel Peace Prize), radical playwright and activist Eve Ensler (The Vagina Monolgoues) and human rights activist - and Director of the City of Joy - Christine Schuler-Deschryver, as they join forces to create this safe haven in the middle of violence-torn Eastern DRC. It is a powerful and beautiful film about the power of the human spirit and I urge you to seek it out: http://drc.vday.org/about-city-of-joy

I’ve been thinking a lot about the gender equality youth activists (Elizabeth, Mervis, Patricia and Tamara) I met with back in Lilongwe, Malawi. We discussed the issues girls face in Malawi and how organisations like @CAMFED, @UNWOMEN and the Malawi Girl Guides Association are helping them overcome these challenges. There is lots of work to be done, and more resources are desperately needed, but I’m hopeful for the future after seeing the enthusiasm these young women have for change. I know they will be holding President Mutharika to his commitment to end child marriage in Malawi within five years! #goal5 My jacket and trousers are from @edun. The sustainable organic cotton canvas material is sourced from a mill in South Africa. The material is untreated which avoids any harmful chemical treatments or finishing processes, which is much better for the environment. Shoes were by @ancientgreeksandals. They are handmade locally by skilled craftsmen in Greece using traditional techniques that have existed for centuries. The chemical free, natural tan leather ages beautifully with time and wear. Perfect for #30wears! I’m rewearing recycled jewellery from @allbluesofficial #30wears PS. You may have noticed me talking about my clothes recently - I’m trying to be conscious about where my clothes come from and also about the people who make them. Just in case you wondering! (I’m not being paid by brands to do this btw!) All fashion info verified by @ecoage

Definitely a highlight of my year was meeting this person. Who picks you up on a Vespa before your meetings to personally show you why she loves her city and her country? It was one of the most free and inspiring mornings I have had all year- not what I expected from someone who is as busy as she must be. She's a yogi, feminist, artist, advocate, mother, warrior and all round gold hearted person. What a privilege it is to have met her. Welcome to Instagram Sophie! ❤ Bonjour! I'm looking forward to being able to see your adventures and especially witness the work you do on behalf of women and girls. P.s she did the driving and we both wore helmets! @sophiegregoiretrudeau #internationaldayofthegirl #ottawa #canada Trench coat by @zady and is made from biodegradable light weight wool, spun, woven and dyed in a vertically integrated facility in Biella, Italy (which is powered by solar panels and hydropower, with an onsite water purification system - limiting environmental impact) Fashion info verified by @ecoage

I had the most amazing day in Malawi today. Thank you President Mutharika for being a #HeForShe Impact Champion and for making gender equality a priority in your Government! Thank you to all the traditional leaders who are implementing President Mutharika's policies - especially Chief Kachindamoto (she’s in the photo with me, she’s formidable and has been nicknamed “The Terminator”!). She gave me such a warm welcome today. She has implemented the annulment of so many child marriages and restored the futures of these girls. With the help and collaboration of her local chiefs, mothers’ groups and religious leaders she has managed to annul almost 1500 child marriages, sending the girls back to school. President Mutharika has committed to make child marriage a thing of the past in Malawi within the next five years. It was amazing to be on the ground with @UNWomen and Chief Kachindamoto to witness their work! My @tomenyc white shirt is made from organic cotton and is part of their 'White Shirt Project’ campaign. The project was conceived in 2014 to raise funds and awareness for the Freedom for All charity, which is fighting human trafficking and modern day slavery. The silk skirt is by @zady. Zady partnered with @cocccon_prakesh, founded in 2012 by Chandra Prakash Jha, a fashion designer who wanted to help his community through fairer wages and a safer, more sustainable process. Instead of using toxic pesticides on the plants that the silkworm caterpillars eat, the farmers protect the trees by covering them with mosquito nets to protect the leaves from harmful birds and insects. Then the silk is brought to New York where expert sewers in New York’s famed Garment District create each piece. Sandals by @nisoloshoes. The sandals were made by a team of expert shoemakers in Trujillo, Peru in a factory owned and operated by Nisolo that celebrates fair trade wages, safe working conditions, healthcare for all employees, and financial literacy & wellness training.

Inspiring and so fun to meet with my @oneyoungworld Ottawa scholars. Proud of each and every one of them, and looking forward to see how their activism develops from here. #goal5 #heforshe #equality
