News from Visitation Province (Canada)

March 8, 2021. This is a global event to celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. It sends a call to everyone to keep insisting on women’s equality issues.

This year’s theme is Choose to Challenge. We can choose to challenge and call out gender bias and inequality. We can choose to seek out and celebrate women's achievements. Together and individually, we can all help create an inclusive world. We can choose to celebrate the brave women who step-out and step-up in leadership roles.

There is a beautiful video that has been circulating recently showing the names and faces of women leaders in today’s world: While the world has been distracted. It’s only a few minutes.
