This Month in Canadian Herstory:
Every year International Women's Day is celebrated around the world on March 8, providing a great opportunity to reflect on improvements in the status of women and to assess what still needs to be done! Canada also celebrates International Women's Week in early March.
The Status of Women Canada announced that Canada's theme for International Women's Day in 2015 is Strong Women. Strong Canada. Canadian Women Creating Jobs One Business at a Time. If Canada really believes in gender equality and celebrating the achievements of women, why aren't these strong Canadian women celebrated on Canadian bank notes? There are so many Canadian heroines who would fit the bill!
