International Women’s Day

The first Women’s Day was held in New York City in 1909. The following year, somewhat inspired by the previous year’s event, it was proposed at the International Socialist Women’s Conference in Denmark that an annual Women’s Day be established to demand and promote women’s rights and suffrage.

Fast forward to today, International Women’s Day is a celebrated day and its website promotes a different theme and hashtag every year. This year is #EachForEqual to promote equality around the world. We can do our part by honouring and supporting the achievements of women, promoting women’s health, and creating inclusive workplaces.

We are celebrating remarkable and inspirational women today (and every day)! Read our interviews with three distinguished women in our community, Chan Hon Goh of Goh BalletDaisy Wu of La Maison Valmont, and Diamond Isinger of Girl Guides of Canada.
