In 1977, the United Nations General Assembly adopted a resolution calling on member states to proclaim a day for women’s rights and international peace. Following the United Nations’ lead, Canada chose March 8 as International Women’s Day (IWD).
Each year at this time, Canadians celebrate progress toward equality for women and their full participation, reflect on the challenges and barriers that remain, and consider future steps to achieving equality for all women, in all aspects of their lives.
I proudly support the mothers, daughters and sisters on pushing the boundaries and help them reach their goals and the goal of equality in everything they do.
This is the woman I proudly call my equal, my wife and an amazing mother to our children.
Make sure you celebrate and support the women in your life as well.
