International Women’s Day

March 8 is International Women’s Day.  Women continue to struggle for equality in Canada and around the world. In Canada over the past century we have made significant progress towards improving the status of women, particularly in terms of the law and government. However, Canadian women still struggle for equality of pay and opportunity.  Canadian women still face discrimination and sexism. Worse, Canadian women are still subject to high levels of violence– worse still, violence carried out by men they know and perhaps even love.

Around the world, the situation is even worse.  In many societies women face worse levels of sexism and violence, often with no protection of any sort from the law. In fact, in some places the government endorses, or even carries out the oppression of women.

This is unacceptable.  International Women’s Day is not just for women. It is for all of us.  Together, men and women must continue to fight for human rights to be guaranteed to all people.
