Women That Give joins all celebrating Women’s History Month.
Did you know the government of Canada called October the Women’s History Month in 1992? Women’s History Month includes International Day of the Girl on October 11 and Persons Day on October 18. This month, we celebrate all women and the impact they have had on our country. The courageous women and girls who are pioneers and have made an impact are celebrated in this month of October.
International Day of the Girl is a day that is dedicated to girls around the world in support of freedom from abuse, violence, and equal opportunities for education, health care, etc.
Person’s Day is an important day because in 1929, the definition of “persons” was changed to include women, and this has made a lot of changes for women, such as giving women the right to participate in politics and the right to vote.
Join us, as we remember all the achievements and the impacts women have had in our country as we celebrate gender quality. Thank you to the women, women-led organizations, allies who are shining a light on the achievements of the women through their work and commitments specifically under the current context of the pandemic.

Gender-based violence (GBV) can sometimes seem like a thing of the past, however, “67% of Canadians know a woman who has experienced physical or sexual abuse,” (Canadian Women’s Foundation). The pandemic has made some GBV situations inescapable, putting women at a greater risk of serious injury or even death. Gender-based violence can also lead to significant trauma for children who witness it, while encouraging the cycle of violence. We all need to come together to prevent GBV and support survivors to help create a safer community for everyone. WTG creates programming and raises funds for survivors. Make a donation today here
Spring is approaching and we are experiencing so much change! Change in weather, time, and even in hope for our “new reality” as vaccines roll out.
Won’t you consider creating a change in these times, too? WTG has been working hard to create partnerships and allies for women in our community. One of WTG’s current projects is the COVID Relief Support Program. This program accepts in-kind donations of sanitation materials and other important necessities so EVERYONE can be safe during these times. You too can help someone in our community today. Consider donating monetarily or in-kind through the CRS Program. Let’s love those around us!
