This International Women’s Day, March 8th, let’s embrace equity by lifting up union women, celebrating our achievements, and pledging to be women’s rights champions in our communities and workplaces.  International Women’s Day is an important day in Canada to recognize and celebrate the achievements of women and to raise awareness about ongoing struggles for gender equality. The day provides an opportunity to celebrate strong women role models and to embrace equity in all areas of society, including workplaces, schools, and communities.

To celebrate strong women and embrace equity on International Women’s Day, Canadians can support women-led initiatives, businesses, women in technical and trade fields, educate themselves about the challenges facing women, and take action to promote gender equality. This may include advocating for policy changes that promote women’s rights, volunteering with organizations that support women and girls, and speaking out against sexism and discrimination and highlighting everyday women who are making a difference in their communities.

This International Women’s Day, celebrate the achievements of union women and pledge to be women’s rights champions in our communities and workplaces. By working together, we can create a more just and equitable society for all.
