“International Women’s Day (March 8) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating women’s equality.
IWD has occurred for well over a century, with the first IWD gathering in 1911 supported by over a million people. Today, IWD belongs to all groups collectively everywhere. IWD is not country, group or organization specific.” – internationalwomensday.com
The International Women’s Day Antigonish theme for 2022 is Seeds of Transformation: Feminist Organizing for Change and Growth, in consideration of the change – past, present, and future for women’s rights, gender justice and ending patriarchy, and the women who do this work.
Join us for one of our upcoming events.
