Message from Ruth Goba – Statement on International Women’s Day

March 6, 2015

Forty years ago, the United Nations declared March 8 as International Women’s Day. It is a day to celebrate women and their achievements, reflect on the progress towards equality, and promote an Ontario and world where there is true gender equality.

While we join the world in observing this day and honouring our mothers, wives, sisters, daughters, allies and friends, we know that we still have work to do at the Ontario Human Rights Commission.

Our work is not done when one in two Canadian women report having experienced some form of violence in their lifetime.
