Thanks to Marcella Pedersen, Susana Deranger, Evening Star Andreas, Terri Sleeva and Amber Fletcher for their thoughtful and inspiring contributions to the presentations, to Saskatchewan Status of Women Office for the grant, and to all of the enthusiastic participants! Some great sharing and ideas about  how women can be influential and inspiring. We all left feeling re-energized.

IWD message from Status of Women Canada

International Women’s Day 2013 / Journée internationale de la femme 2013

March 8 is International Women’s Day. International Women’s Week begins from March 3 to March 9. Each year at this time, Canadians celebrate progress toward equality for women and their full participation in all aspects of their lives.

Canada’s theme for International Women’s Day and Week 2013 – Working Together: Engaging Men to End Violence against Women – provides an opportunity for us to reflect on the impacts of violence against women and girls, and how we can all be part of the solution. You can promote this special week by:

  • sharing information on this year’s theme for IWD; or
  • participating or organizing an event.

Also, we would like to take this opportunity to inform you of a new web site dedicated to this topic, which includes information on what we can all do to help end violence against women and girls: www.women.gc.ca/violence.


Le 8 mars est la Journée internationale de la femme, et cette journée fait elle-même partie de la Semaine internationale de la femme, qui a lieu du 3 au 9 mars. Chaque année à cette période, les Canadiennes et les Canadiens mesurent les progrès accomplis en vue d’atteindre l’égalité des sexes et la pleine participation des femmes dans tous les aspects de la vie.

Le thème retenu par le Canada pour la Journée et la Semaine en 2013 est Travaillons ensemble : engager les hommes dans l’élimination de la violence faite aux femmes. Ce thème nous offre l’occasion de réfléchir aux conséquences de la violence faite aux femmes et aux filles, et à ce que chacune et chacun de nous peut faire pour aider à l’éliminer. Vous pouvez promouvoir cette semaine spéciale de différentes façons, par exemple :

  • communiquez de l’information sur le thème annuel;
  • participez à une activité ou organisez-en une.

Nous en profitons pour vous signaler un nouveau site Web consacré à ce sujet, qui explique comment chacune et chacun peut aider à éliminer la violence faite aux femmes et aux filles. Vous trouverez ce site à l’adresse suivante : www.femmes.gc.ca/violence.

Follow-up to AGM

Thanks to everyone who attended our AGM in person or through Skype. It was fun to connect with the participants over the Internet and gain new ideas and perspectives!

May 12 AGM, speaker, food, film, discussions

Individual women and representatives of women’s organizations are invited to our AGM on May 12 in Regina, with a presentation about women’s rights and the UN, a roundtable about current women’s groups’ activities in the province and a film.

WIN-S has just completed a successful year where we established a website, sent out our first newsletter and conducted a province-wide on-line webinar for International Women’s Day.

We invite you to attend all or part of our AGM meeting in person in Regina. For those who are unable to attend in person, we are hoping to be able to connect via Skype though the computer. We would love to meet with other groups and individuals interested in women’s issues.
