International Women’s Day, Tuesday, March 8, celebrates the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women and girls. It is also a time to raise awareness and take action for women’s equality and to work towards a world that is free of bias, stereotypes and discrimination.
The Vancouver Island University Faculty Associations Status of Women Committee is hosting a celebratory event for International Women’s Day, March 8, from noon to 1 pm in the Malaspina Theatre lobby (bldg 310). Invited speakers will talk about their “Sheroes: Past, Present Future.” Everyone is invited to attend.
This year’s international theme is #BreakTheBias. People are encouraged to strike the break the bias pose and post it on social media with the hashtags #BreakTheBias and #IWD2022.
Canada’s theme is Women Inspiring Women. It celebrates all women and girls who inspire us by demonstrating leadership in the choices they make in their day-to-day lives to contribute to the social, economic, cultural, and political spheres.
