International Woman’s Day 2024

International Woman’s Day 2024

From Statistics Canada: “Today, March 8, is International Women’s Day (IWD), which serves as an opportunity to raise awareness of the progress made toward achieving gender equality, as well as highlight the inequalities that persist. This year, the United Nations (UN) Women’s theme for IWD is “Invest in women: Accelerate progress.” According to UN Women, one key area that requires action to ensure women are not left behind is ending poverty.”

Today, we can think of no better group to feature on our blog but DAWN Canada. DAWN Canada was founded in 1985 following a meeting between seventeen women from across Canada who came together to discuss issues of mutual concern.

Their mission closely aligns with this year theme “Invest in women: Accelerate progress” as it relates to ensuring no woman gets left behind.
