International Women’s Day 2021

On 2021’s #InternationalWomensDay, I’ve spent time reflecting on the devastating impact COVID has had on the progress of women. Women have been the ones to care for and educate our children, look after our aging parents, and work remotely to meet job expectations that largely ignore these new burdens. For many, trying to shoulder all of that has meant stepping back from the workforce because we (in North America at least) have failed to make meaningful change to fund the supports required – like affordable child care and seniors assistance programs – for a modern, healthy, and robust economy.

At home, at work, in our schools, communities, places of worship, governments, and across society at large: I #ChooseToChallenge because I know we have the power to transform the lives of women today and for generations to come.
