International Women’s Day 2013


Have you heard? March 8th is International Women’s Day. First celebrated in 1909 as National Woman’s Day (United States), and internationally since 1911, this is a day for recognizing the rights and achievements of women throughout history and across the world.

The official theme for this year is The Gender Agenda: Gaining Momentum, a call for change and celebration of progress made towards gender equality. You can read about past themes on the official website, and browse through over 1,000 supporters’ initiatives and events (including pages promoted by governments, charities, and media).

From Join Women on the Bridge, a protest in the UK to end violence against women, to The Naming Ceremony, a series of plays held in Nigeria, based on the stories and issues of Nigerian women, the IWD website offers a variety of news, events, and resources from all over the globe.

Attend an art show! Participate in a yoga or dance workshop! Start networking! If you have doubts about relegating equal rights to a “day”, join a forum! Taking part isn’t hard: with over 60 events already listed for Canada, you are sure to find something that interests you.

Who are the women who have been most influential or inspirational to you?
