This Sunday, show the women in your life how important they are by celebrating International Women’s Day. Across the world, men show their appreciation by giving flowers and thanking their mothers, sisters, daughters and any others who have made an impact on their being.
Canada’s theme for International Women’s Day 2009 is Strong Leadership. Strong Women. Strong World: Equality.
8 March 2009 marks the 100th Anniversary of International Women’s Day, and offers a valuable opportunity to celebrate past accomplishments and gains; pay tribute to current efforts; and focus on the challenges that still lie ahead in working towards equality, justice, peace and development for women.
