Her Story, Our Story: Celebrating Canadian Women

Since 1992, the month of October is designated as the Canadian Women’s History Month. This month highlights women’s contributions to Canadian society and recognizes their achievements as a vital part of the Canadian heritage. The month of October has become an opportunity for Canadians to learn about women’s and girls’ valuable contributions to our society as well as the challenges they faced (and continue to face) and opportunities they have seized. The theme for Women’s History Month 2015 is “Her Story, Our Story: Celebrating Canadian Women”. To learn more about the Women’s History Month, you can visit the Status of Women Canada’s website.
