International Women's Day Events

March 8, 2017 - 12:00 AM

On March 8, Unifor marks International Women's Day with the theme Persistence with solidarity toward equality.  The past year has brought intense attacks on equality, in Canada and worldwide. In response, we have risen to these challenges and have mobilized across communities.  The strength of the Women’s Marches demonstrates our commitment to moving forward with a diverse, intersectional movement.

As we celebrate at International Women’s Day events across the country let us take the opportunity to reaffirm our commitment to remove all obstacles to gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls.

The struggle for equality will take persistence.
