Womens' History Month

This is a day to commemorate notable events in history that led to greater equality for women and to recognize the trailblazers who were powerful change agents.  See the attached timeline that celebrates women who were monumental in advancing women’s rights and progress in Canadian Society.  The ordinary heroes, the mothers and caretakers, who made choices and often sacrifices so that their children could be raised with love, affection, and the values that make ‘good people’ need an honourable mention as well.  Strong women often endured hardship so that the next generation of girls and women would experience more opportunity, more equality.  When we think about the people we serve, and the women who are mothers doing their best to raise children in a world that has become so impacted by globalization, climate change, social media, and other significant world issues, we have to remember that our work towards equity is not finished. Women are still paid less on the dollar than men, women are still burdened more frequently with child rearing responsibilities, and women are still suffering from gender-based violence. Let’s reflect on the fact that we have the power to use our voices and lend our ideas towards meaningful change and innovation on behalf of all women and girls in the world.
