INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY 2021: #FeministRecovery #IWD2021

SCCC recognizes the importance of the ongoing struggle to achieve gender equality in Canada. This year’s IWD theme is #FeministRecovery.

International Women’s Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity. Significant activity is witnessed worldwide as groups come together to celebrate women’s achievements or rally for women’s equality.


Marked annually on March 8th, this day is one of the most important days of the year to:

  • celebrate the contributions of women and girls everywhere;
  • recognize women who inspire us all; and
  • renew discussion about the importance of gender equality in Canada and around the world.

This year’s theme, #FeministRecovery. invites us to take a pledge to advance gender equality and support an inclusive recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic by using #FeministRecovery on  social media accounts. An inclusive recovery offers the opportunity to advance gender equality and provide economic and social stability for all Canadians.
