International Women’s Day is an important opportunity to celebrate the contributions of women in Canada and around the world. By recognizing their achievements, we can encourage more women and girls to follow in their footsteps.
Commemorative dates like International Women’s Day are a call to action to renew our efforts to advance gender equality. Empowering women and girls is important and a fundamental human right.
This year’s theme for International Women’s Day is #MyFeminism, in recognition of the role that feminism continues to play in bringing about positive change here in Canada and internationally, and building an equal, secure and prosperous world.
Everyone can participate in International Women’s Day and help raise awareness of the importance of gender equality. Tell us what feminism means to you using the hashtag #MyFeminism.
