Take action! International Women’s Day on March 8 is a reminder to celebrate and respect the contributions of women – always. The 2023 Canadian theme, Every Woman Counts, is a powerful one. It reinforces that all women, including those with disabilities, have a place in every part of Canadian society. But there are barriers to break down. We know all women deserve to have their voices heard, to be included, and to have their contributions to their communities respected and valued – that includes women with disabilities.

Dawn Canada’s report, More than a Footnote: a Research Report on Women and Girls with Disabilities in Canada, provides valuable insight into those barriers and calls everyone to action. Read the report.
