Author’s note: This post was commissioned as an IWD blog by the Canadian Museum for Human Rights. It was initially approved and posted by the Museum on 4 March 2014. It was, however, almost immediately withdrawn as ‘Communications’ at the Museum deemed the one line comment on the current federal Conservative government unacceptable as written. The offer of a substantive footnote and illustrative example from the author brought no reply. ActiveHistory.ca has reposted this time-sensitive contribution here, to which examples of anti-women policies and a footnote have been added.
Consider dedicating this week’s 3-Minute Action to International Women’s Day.
This site has a list of events organized by country, so no matter where you happen to be on March 8th, you can find something to suit your situation. From art exhibits to speeches to webinars, there’s something for everyone.
