AFL 2023 International Women’s Day Statement

This year’s #InternationalWomensDay theme #EmbraceEquity is a conversation that we all need to be having, not only in Alberta, but all over the world.

With our current government’s continued attack on the rights of women, Albertans need to continue calling out discrimination, challenging stereotypes, seeking inclusion, and demanding that more be done as women continue to seek fairness of treatment according to their needs. Some of those needs are access to good economic opportunities, health care, and education.

The Alberta Federation of Labour (AFL) along with their Women’s Equity Representatives are committed to continuing the fight for equity. Once we have equity, then our goal of achieving equality is one step closer.

Embrace Equity and stand with millions of women all over the world on this International Women’s Day.
