International Women’s Day, March 8 is a global day to recognize and celebrate the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. The day honours women's accomplishments around the entire world and calls us to continued action in achieving women’s equity.

The United Nations began celebrating International Women's Day in 1975, which had been proclaimed International Women's Year. Two years later, the United Nations General Assembly invited member states to proclaim March 8 as an official UN holiday for women's rights and world peace. Since then, the day has been recognized in much of the world. Each year a theme is chosen focusing on a topic around women’s rights or related issues. This year’s international theme is #Embrace Equity. The Government of Canada chose to express this theme as Every Woman Counts to remind us that all women, of all ages and walks of life, need to have a place in every aspect of Canadian society.
