The Victim Issues Coordinating Committee of Leeds & Grenville will mark International Women’s Day (IWD) 2018 by hosting our annual Women’s Wellness Day on Thursday March 8, 2018.
International Women’s Day is celebrated on March 8 in many countries around the world. It is a day when women are recognized for their achievements without regard to divisions, whether national, ethnic, linguistic, cultural, economic or political. It is a time to reflect on progress made, to call for change and to celebrate acts of courage and determination by ordinary women who have played an extraordinary role in the history of their countries and communities. This day marks a rallying point to build support for women’s rights and participation in the political and economic spheres.
The 2018 theme for International Women’s Day is, “Building Your Wellness Toolbox.”
The Victim Issues Coordinating Committee of Leeds and Grenville recognize IWD annually by hosting the event, “Women’s Wellness Day”. This is a free event for the women of Leeds & Grenville which allows them to connect and build skills to improve their daily lives.
