International Women's Day 2018

March 9, 2018

Blog by Christian Michalik, Acting Superintendent

Today, March 8th, is International Women's Day. It’s a day to honour and celebrate the women in our lives and in our community. It is also a day to reflect on the gender inequality that continues to plague our world in 2018 and pledge to change that world.

I’ve read on Canada’s Status of Women website that, “This year's theme, #MyFeminism, is inspired by the question: What does feminism mean to you?” I encourage my fellow educators in the Louis Riel School Division to consider integrating this theme in their teaching over the coming year and to explore the Educators' Toolkit our federal government is making available to us. I encourage us all to engage our colleagues, students and parents to ask the question: What does feminism mean to us? And, to explore topics related to gender-based injustices, rights, responsibilities, democracy and leadership. 

When thinking of democracy and leadership, it started in Manitoba, led by Nellie McClung. It was only 102 years ago that women were first allowed to vote in a provincial election. This eventually led to the right being granted in other provinces, territories and at the federal level. We had to wait until 1960 to see indigenous men and women granted the right to vote! 

The history of women’s rights in Canada and other parts of the world is the history of human rights. Let it serve us as inspiration for our ongoing efforts to create a more just society, together.
