International Women's Day 2017

Dear Diary:

March 8th marks International Women's Day in Canada.  
Official Poster from Government of Canada

Canada's theme for the day is Equality Matters.  From the Status of Women Canada website

Equality Matters because...
          The world needs the talents of everyone - women, men, girls and boys - to truly           reach its full potential.

          Gender stereotypes hold us all back.

          We've already come so far...equality is the only way to move ahead!

The site goes on to state:
         Equality is good for the economy
         Equality is good for children
         Equality is good for democracy
         Equality is good for everyone

March 8th is also known as the United Nations Day for Women's Rights and International Peace.  Their theme focuses on "Women in the Changing World of Work: Planet 50-50 by 2030".  Here is a quote from the UN Women website:

The world of work is changing fast, through innovation, increasing mobility and informality.  But it needs to change faster to empower women, whose work has already driven many of the global gains in recent decades.  Women still predominantly occupy jobs that pay less and provide no benefits.  They earn less than men, even as they shoulder the enormous--and economically essential--burden of unpaid care and domestic work.  Realizing women's economic empowerment requires transformative change so that prosperity is equitably shared and no one is left behind.

On this day, let's honour all the strong women wherever they may be.

Good Night for now.
