Canadian Resources for International Women's Day

Posted by Facing History and Ourselves Canada on March 7, 2023

March 8th is International Women's Day, which coincides with Women’s History Month in the United States. While women and their contributions have been excluded from recorded history in many societies, women storytellers have ensured that their achievements are shared and celebrated. We hope these guiding questions and resource collections help in your inclusion of diverse women stories whether on International Women's Day, during Women's History Month in October and throughout the school year:

  • What gaps do you still see in your curricula when it comes to women and women’s history? 
  • What are some of the tools and resources you’ve found to address them?
