In 1992 the Government of Canada designated October as Women’s History Month.

The goal was to encourage greater appreciation of the notable contributions of women to Canadian history. October was selected because it was on October 18th, 1929 that Canadian women were first declared to be legally considered as ‘persons.’ *

“This year’s theme,” according to the Government of Canada website, “Through Her Lens: Celebrating the Diversity of Women, emphasizes the importance of recognizing the achievements and contributions of women from diverse backgrounds. It focuses on the unique perspectives, experiences, and challenges faced by women, including Indigenous women; women from 2SLGBTQI+ communities; women with disabilities; and newcomer, racialized, and migrant women. 

“Let’s continue to honour women who don’t accept the status quo and fight hard to improve the lives of all women in the country.”
