International Women's Day 2019

Dear Diary:

Every year, March 8th is celebrated as International Women's Day.  This day is important in more than 100 countries and is acknowledged in many countries as a holiday for women.  

The colour of the day this year is purple.

Canada's theme is #InnovateForChange, with a technological approach, STEM.  It stands for science, technology, engineering and math.  The idea is to create a more equal world by taking away the hurdles that women face in STEM.  Only a third of the graduates in STEM are women.  Let's make our girls, our friends, our daughters feel they can be in STEM and be successful.

Here are some things to do to celebrate Women's Day:
- Participate in a Women's Day event
- Learn more about women in your community who have made a contribution in STEM
- Encourage women you know to look at technology as an option for further education.

Good Night for now.
