Happy International Women's Day

Happy International Women's Day!
Being a Woman is awesome, but it does sometimes come with some draw backs; mostly misogyny and period cramps

We've come a long way towards gender equality, but we're not there yet. We still need to keep talking about it and working with everyone to make it better. 
The Government of Canada put this on their website today, explaining the ways that women are not yet equal and what we can do to help. They also had these awesome pictures expressing different ways of  why #equalitymatters and trying to break stereotypes

Not only did they post these, they also included text of what the pictures contained as an extra accessibility. You keep on rockin' GOC

One of the things I love in the World is Barbie. 
"But you're a feminist!" you say. 
Yes, that is true, but loving Barbie doesn't change that. Barbie can be anything, do anything, and I don't know anything more empowering than that.

This year they have released this amazing ad and I think we can all learn a lot from it

Now imagine the possibilities if we taught our children this instead of focusing on looks and bodies

Also check out today's Google doodle, as it's pretty awesome

If you're in the Toronto area this Saturday (March 11th) there's the International Women's Day March Toronto taking place and yours truly will be there.
