Sunday marks International Women's Day

Family Service Toronto celebrates gender justice, equality and diversity in the community this weekend as it marks International Women's Day on Sunday. 

The annual event on March 8 is an opportunity to celebrate the achievements of women while calling for greater equality and drawing focus on women's rights. This year's theme is Make It Happen, encouraging effective action for advancing and recognizing women around the world.

The first International Women's Day was held in 1911 and now thousands of events mark the economic, political and social achievements of women internationally. Dozens of Toronto events are scheduled through this weekend and are listed on the International Women's Day website.
