International Women's Day (March 8) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating women's equality. 

Inspire Inclusion

The campaign theme for this year's International Women's Day is "Inspire Inclusion." Everyone, wherever can inspire inclusion to help forge positive change for women and girls. #IWD2024 #InspireInclusion

Now more then ever we need to collectively come together to work towards creating lasting gender equality. We need to do this not just for the sake of women, girls, trans and non-binary individuals but for everyone. When women thrive and gender discrimination decreases, families and entire communities succeed.

Every 48 hours. That's how often a femicide happens in Canada

2.4 million. That's the number of women and girls living in poverty

89 cents. Its the average earned by full-time working women for every dollar men make.

14 percent. That's the number of grade 10 girls who say they are self-confident.

These are powerful indications of the distance we have yet to climb to achieve true gender equality.
