International Women’s Day- March 8

International Women’s Day is coming up on Tuesday March 8, an annual global celebration of women and the fight for gender equality.

The first event of its kind was celebrated in 1911, since then, the day has grown to include thousands of activities and celebrations around the world. 
The theme of International Women’s Day 2016 is #PledgeForParity.
While women continue to contribute socially, economically, culturally and politically, gender parity continues to be a struggle.
In addition to events taking place across Canada, men and women are invited to take an online pledge to help close the gap between the sexes.
