Tomorrow is International Women's Day! And Montreal is ready to celebrate everything that it means to be a woman.
Every year on March 8th, the women's rights movement is celebrated all over the world. The very first Women's Day was actually celebrated in 1909!
From women's suffrage movements to equal pay strikes to the rights to our own bodies, Women's Day was made to commemorate it all. This day is dedicated to appreciating women in all their glory and commemorating their constant battle in modern society.
Of course, Montreal participates in all the fun and will be holding tons of events tomorrow. From conferences to good events, March 8th is a great day to be a woman or a man. Feminism definitely isn't just for women!
