Clara Zetkin and a small group of like-minded women marked this day a century ago; today we remind ourselves how much women have achieved, and how much work there is still left to be done.
The Alternative Report in response to the federal government's report on women's progress in Canada 15 years after the 1995 Beijing Declaration is a refreshing counterpoint to federal failures.

March is Women's History Month, recognizing women's central role in society. Unfortunately, violence against women is epidemic in the United States and around the world.
