Women across the world celebrated the 100th anniversary of International Women’s Day this past week. It was with great interest that I read an article written by Irena Pochop in the local Tri-city News. She is with theTri-City Transitions Society (formerly Tri-City Women’s Resource Society).
She wrote in her article on Wednesday March 9, 2011 that in Canada we have made great strides in women’s education and women’s rights over the past century. She continues that “ Canada boasts that women make up the majority of full-time students in most university faculties, that the current government has the highest percentage of women in cabinet in Canadian history, and that women’s employment has risen to 74.3% in the last decade alone.”
She goes on to state that “the last 100 years have shown how enriched Canadian society can be by the meaningful work and involvement of our women.”
Irena further states that “This communal and global value of women’s education is acknowledged poignantly in the old Chinese saying: “To plan for a day, catch a fish; to plan for a year, plant rice; to plan for a decade, plant a tree; but to plan for a lifetime, educate a girl.”
We are all aware that there is much room for improvement, but we are heading in the right direction. I encourage you to be inspired by the many women that have gone ahead of us, showing us that “we can do great things”
I would love to hear who some of the women are that have inspired you.
We are surrounded by so many wonderful women. In British Columbia Christie Clark was voted leader of the BC Liberals and the next premier in February 2011. You might not agree with her politics, but I love to celebrate the achievements of other women.
We can all make a contribution in our way. Joint Ventures gives us the opportunity to make the changes not only in our own lives but also to enrich the lives of the people around us. I recommend “How to Create Wealth for Life Using Joint Ventures”
Every individual matters. Every individual has a role to play. Every individual makes a difference. -Jane Goodall
