Every year, the Confederation of Canadian Unions celebrates International Women’s Day. It’s the global day to celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The celebration has occurred for well over a century, with the first one created by the socialist movement in 1910.
This year’s theme for International Women’s Day is “Every Women Counts.” It’s a reminder that all women, from all ages and walks of life, have a place in every aspect of Canadian society, including in the economic, social and democratic spheres.
Let’s celebrate the successful women around us, reminding today’s youth and girls that their dream is within reach.
