Since 1977, International Women's Day - March 8 - has been recognized as a day to think about the rights, challenges and contributions of girls and women around the world. It has become a time to celebrate, to reflect, to mourn; a time to encourage change and to make steps toward enhancing quality of life. Come join in our discussion to share your stories, voice your concerns, cheer for your successes
"Around the world, women and girls face violations of their human rights in times of armed conflict as well as in times of peace. During International Women's Week, I encourage Canadians to celebrate the gains made by women, as well as to reflect on the challenges faced by all women in Canada and around the world and to continually work to enhance women's quality of life."
