This year's theme – #MyFeminism

Banner for International Women's Day 2018

Feminism is simply about equality – equality for women, men and people of all gender identities. Achieving gender equality means that everyone has the opportunity to reach their full potential.

This year's theme for International Women's Day is #MyFeminism, inspired by the role feminism continues to play in shaping Canada and countries around the world.

From the early suffragettes to the activists of today, #MyFeminism celebrates the feminists who inspire others through their determination to make a difference. They are the activists, advocates, and allies who continue to lead the way towards positive change.

This year, let's celebrate the feminist heroes who have helped pave the way towards equality. Add your voice to the conversation and tell us what feminism means to you using the hashtag #MyFeminism.
