iwd: fighting for women is fighting for us all


Monday, March 8, is International Women's Day. It's a celebration of the power of women, and a reminder that the status of women, both globally and at home, is a battle that still needs fighting.

I usually post a historic perspective on this day. This year, as I started to gather information, I realized that next year is the 100th anniversary of IWD!

In Toronto, IWD is a celebration of women's historic - and current - role in the fight for justice: for labour, peace, personal freedom and security. The march, rally and fair is today.
