March 8 is International Women’s Day — a day to recognize women’s achievements and acknowledge the challenges they continue to face in the quest for gender equality.
This year, Canada’s theme for International Women’s Day is Equality Matters.
Equality Matters because…
The world needs the talents of everyone – women, men, girls and boys – to truly reach its full potential.
Gender stereotypes hold us all back.
We’ve already come so far…equality is the only way to move ahead!
This International Women’s Day, make a commitment to gender equality and share it on social media using the hashtag #EqualityMatters.
