International Women's Day

International Women's Day is annually held on March 8 to celebrate women's achievements throughout history and across nations. It is also known as the United Nations (UN) Day for Women's Rights and International Peace.

This year's theme is #PressForProgress, acknowledging the strides being made toward gender parity powered by global activism. Women are making important strides across our province, including increased participation in entrepreneurial endeavors.

International Women's Day is a way to celebrate Saskatchewan's women and girls, and our accomplishments, Minister Responsible for the Status of Women Tina Beaudry-Mellor said. This year, we want to recognize the women starting and growing their own businesses in Saskatchewan. When women participate in our economy, we all benefit.

Across the province this month, there are community-based women's organizations hosting events to commemorate International Women's Day.
