International Women's Day will be celebrated Tuesday, March 8, 2016 at the Holiday Inn Harbourview in Dartmouth. 




This year's theme:


 Women's Empowerment Leads to Equality




International Women's Day (IWD) is a global day celebrating the economic, political and social achievements of women past, present and future.


We encourage you to take this day to focus upon and remember the struggles of women around the world.  It is a chance for women to reflect on the past and on-going progress and gains made in the struggle for peace, equal rights and social advancement. This day commemorates the hard work and dedication to women around the world who are at the forefront of advancing women's issues and ensuring that the future for girls is bright, equal, safe and rewarding.


The IWD Organizing Committee made up of volunteers of Federal Government Departments and is excited to offer an educational program geared towards your suggestions from previous years.


 Nova Scotia women from Federal Departments, Agencies, Crown Corporations, the Military, the Public Service Alliance of Canada and their retirees are invited to attend this year's event.
