Editorial: A sombre International Women's Day

"March 8 is normally a time to celebrate the achievements of women and how far our society has progressed. This year feels more sombre."

For the full article reflecting on this year's International Women's Day, with a particular focus on Quebec, check out this editorial by the Montreal Gazette Editorial Board (published March 5, 2021).


This editorial reflects on the consequences of domestic violence (since this is also a men's issue and reminds us of the recent changes to the federal divorce law that now takes into account domestic violence). It also mentions the harsh impact the pandemic is having over women in other ways, including job losses.

As a side note, Forbes has an interesting article on how the pandemic has disproportionately impacted women.


Check out the official International Women's Day (IWD 2021) website. The IWD 2021 campaign theme is #ChooseToChallenge making a call to action to call out gender bias and inequality to help create an inclusive world.

The Fédération Interprofessionnelle de la santé du Québec (FIQ) celebrates its theme for 2021: Let's listen to women to improve living and working conditions.
