Celebrating International Women’s Day

March 8 is the day we celebrate the strength, wisdom and courage of women in our families, our communities, and across the world. New Democrats join with billions of people to recognize and honour the efforts and commitment of women in making our world a better place. 

We also recognize the challenges that are still before us and the essential role that women play in addressing injustice and inequality as it exists in the world today. Women are witnesses on the front lines in the struggle to eliminate poverty, address homelessness, eradicate family and sexualized violence, and work for peace. This is true as much for PEI as it is around the globe. 

I am grateful for the women who have built and continue to build the Island New Democrats. Our party is better, stronger and our voice is more progressive because of their contributions. 

This March 8, be part of the celebration of Women who empower us all in  building a world of hope, equality and justice. Let us honour their courage and commitment by being a part of the same struggle. Women are leading, let us have the same courage to follow.

Please join us at our Beans, Bread and Roses Event in celebration of International Women’s Day on Friday, March 6, 5-7pm at the Haviland Club in Charlottetown.
