Celebrating Women for October Women’s History Month

Spread the love

October is Women’s History Month.

It is a time to celebrate the women and girls from our past and our present, who are contributing to a better, more inclusive Canada.

In 1992, the Government of Canada designated October as Women’s History Month, marking the beginning of an annual celebration of the outstanding achievements of women and girls throughout Canada’s history. This year marks the 30th anniversary of Women’s History Month.

This year’s theme, She Did, So Now I Can, celebrates the actions of inspiring Canadian women that positively impact our lives today, right now, at this very minute. We are thankful for their courage and for inspiring us to do better.

In a statement, Marci Ien remarked:

“Amazing women and girls are all around us, making a difference each and every day. They build a more inclusive society, one decision at a time, may it be large or small. Whether they save lives, make astonishing discoveries, volunteer their time, or defend a cause they believe in, it’s their persistence and passion that contributes to greater gender equality for us all”

“Many women have become trailblazers in their area because they did not accept no for an answer. They pushed boundaries and created more opportunities for themselves, resulting in more opportunities for us today. We are grateful to women like Bertha WilsonAnn DivineLouise Hine-Schmidt, and so many others for showing us the way. Because they broke down barriers and pushed boundaries, we are now inspired to follow in their footsteps.”

Alberta’s Associate Minister of Women  Armstrong Homeniuk said: “There are no limits to what women can achieve. One reason Alberta is a wonderful place to live, work and raise a family is the women who helped build our province into the prosperous place it is today”.
