We asked some of our students
"What does International Women's Day mean to you?" Here are their answers:
To me, International Women's Day is an opportunity to celebrate women around the world and all that they do. It's an opportunity to celebrate their achievements, their triumphs, their battles, their struggles, and everything in between. It is about showcasing how exceptional it is to be a woman every single day!
International Women’s Day means overcoming obstacles, finding resilience and gender equity. I also recognize that our Indigenous women and girls are sacred, and we will continue to be leaders and contribute to our communities. I truly believe that I got to where I am today by staying true to myself, caring deeply about what I do, and by realizing the greater context of my actions.
For me, International Women’s Day is a day to celebrate the accomplishments of women around the globe, while drawing attention to the issues that we still need to address.
