Tuesday, March 8th is International Women’s Day

Today is International Women’s Day. This is a global day that recognizes and celebrates the 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. It is also a time to raise awareness of the progress made towards achieving gender equality and acknowledging the work remaining to be done.

In Canada, unlike in many other countries, girls are free to study and be leaders in the field they choose, care and provide for their family, express who they are, and fight for their beliefs. At the OCDSB we believe in gender equality and the empowerment of girls. No one should be treated differently, or subjected to unrealistic body standards, sexist jokes, shaming language, sexual harassment or gender stereotypes, just because they are a girl. We all have a role to play in ensuring that our schools remain welcoming and safe for women and girls, so that we all can excel at school. 

The OCDSB would like to take a moment to celebrate and wish a very happy International Women’s Day to all the girls and women in our District.
