International Women’s Day 2023

International Women’s Day is celebrated around the world on March 8.

Across the country and in Manitoba, CUPE members will be participating in community events to honour the accomplishments of women, in all their diversity, and to reaffirm our commitment to gender equality. This day also marks a call to action to end gender based violence in our community and in the workplace.

It is also an opportunity to celebrate the individuals and groups who have struggled to create a society that promotes diversity, tolerance, safety, social justice and equality across our province.

Take Action: Not one step back

  • Amplify the Canadian Labour Congress’s Future of Care Campaign and tell your MP to value care work.
  • Take steps to implement CUPE’s Anti-Racism Strategy in your local.

Again this year, CUPE members and women around the world have a very clear message: “Not One Step Back.” And we commit to regaining ground on justice for all women.

CUPE Manitoba joins with CUPE National, and the Canadian labour movement in wishing you a happy, strong, and meaningful International Women’s Day!
