On International Women's Day,
we shout out to women activists and their allies
who shine so brightly and to whom we say,
We celebrate her vision and determination as a trade union leader to build an organizing union whose members fight for and deliver outstanding public service.
We celebrate her unflappable leadership in her search for justice for miners whose lives were forever altered because of occupational disease. As she works tirelessly and builds communities to unravel the links between work and health, she does so with deep integrity.
We celebrate these women who protect the herstory of Canadian feminism and their decades of personal and collaborative work to better women’ s lives. We share their contagious enthusiasm for telling unfettered truths.
We celebrate Autumn’s beautiful spirit as a warrior and generous heart as a young leader. We are grateful for her passion and commitment to our environment and earth.
Fredericton Youth Feminists and allies in the community of Fredericton, New Brunswick. We celebrate the people of Fredericton and the activists who fought to keep Clinic 554 open to serve women, protect access to abortion and who demand reproductive justice and health care for all.
