Saskatchewan Celebrates International Women's Day

Released on March 8, 2018

March 8 is International Women’s Day, a day chosen by the United Nations to recognize women and the contributions they make every day around the world.  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 endeavours.

“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.

A list of the events is available on the Status of Women website at

“International Women’s Day events not only help mark the day, but they also raise awareness for women’s equality while celebrating our achievements,” Beaudry-Mellor said.  “We are proud to acknowledge women on International Women’s Day and throughout the year.”
