International Women’s Day is a call to action

International Women’s Day is a call to action for accelerating women’s equality and this year’s theme is Invest in Women: Accelerate Progress. ONWA celebrates the importance of Indigenous women throughout the world. Investing in Indigenous women and their organizations is an investment in the whole community – it has a critical multiplier effect on poverty eradication and helps develop safer communities.

“International Women’s Day is an opportunity to honour Indigenous women and girls who continue to lead the way and push boundaries as disruptors of colonial systems that perpetuate racism, sexism, and discrimination. Indigenous women have an inherent right to exercise our roles in community, nationally and internationally. Today, and every day, we recognize and celebrate Indigenous women’s strength and leadership in the work they do to support their families and communities.” – Cora McGuire-Cyrette, ONWA CEO
