Status Of Women Office Highlights New Campaign For International Women's Day

Released on March 8, 2021

March 8 marks International Women's Day and this year the Government of Saskatchewan's Status of Women Office is highlighting three female leaders in the fields of advocacy, agriculture and sport in our province.

"International Women's Day is a day to showcase the resilience and perseverance of women from across the world," Minister Responsible for the Status of Women Office, Laura Ross said.  "This campaign provides an opportunity to shine a spotlight on the strong female leadership we have right here in our province."

The theme for this year's International Women's Day is "choose to challenge" which speaks to women who choose to challenge the status quo every day to make positive changes for themselves, other women and for their communities.

"Choose to challenge" was taken into account to highlight women of different ages and backgrounds who are change-makers in various fields of work in Saskatchewan.  The women highlighted this year are:

  • Kendra Weenie, an award nominated author and inspirational speaker from Sweetgrass First Nation.
     
  • Cherilyn Jolly-Nagel, a farmer, speaker, director and driving force in the Saskatchewan agriculture industry from Mossbank.

  • Shelby Newkirk, an entrepreneur and internationally recognized para-swim athlete from Saskatoon.
