This is the Government of Canada’s Theme for International Women’s Day, which is today, Tuesday, March 8th. Take a moment to show your appreciation of the women in your life!
This theme: Women Inspiring Women: “celebrates all the women and girls who inspire us by demonstrating leadership in the choices they make in their day-to-day lives to contribute to the social, economic, cultural, and political spheres.
In Canada, unlike in many other countries, women are free to study and be leaders in the field they choose, care and provide for their family, express who they are, and fight for their beliefs.” To learn more about what Government of Canada is doing visit their website.
Personally, I am forever grateful for all those strong, inspiring women who came before me, who forged a path for me to walk so much easier. I am proud of the strong roots they planted and the guidance they provided. Additionally, I am inspired and humbled by those young women coming up behind me. I hope that in some small fashion, I can give them something to look up to and to be inspired by as well.
