On March 8, people around the country will come together to celebrate International Women’s Day 2023. It’s a global day organized annually that recognizes and celebrates the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women.
As we fight for women’s rights, we must recognize that all struggles for human rights and justice are interconnected. To achieve justice for all women, we must dismantle all forms of oppression that women face.
On this International Women’s Day, take action to uphold the rights of women in all countries worldwide.
CUPE Local 50 members work in the territories of the Lekwungen and W̱sáneć Peoples – the Songhees, Esquimalt, Pauquachin, Tsartlip, Tsawout, and Tseycum Nations. We acknowledge the long-standing and continuing relationship of Indigenous Peoples to the lands and waters in local communities.
