WFWP, Toronto invites you to our Seventh Annual International Women’s Day celebration, on March 23/13
IWD is an occasion for honoring the achievements of women. The past century has brought
astonishing progress, by just about every measure, in terms of women’s health, their economic opportunities, their political power and more.
Today, women are leaders in every field…….. yet violence against women in the family, work and society still continues.

This year 2013, WFWP selected the theme : ” Women Standing up to Violence: Finding Ways Through, with Hope & Connection”, that aligns with UN Commission on the Status of Women theme, for it’s 57th session. 

As this theme suggests, violence against women affects us all, and everyone – 
men and women – must be part of the solution.

On International Women’s Day 2013, we call on all Canadians to work together 
to end violence against women. Violence is not just a women’s issue: men have 
key roles to play in making our country safe for everyone. 

During her meeting with African civil society organizations,UN Women Executive Director, Ms. Bachelet stated, “Let us make every effort to unleash the full potential of women and 
girls. Let us redouble efforts towards the eradication of all forms of 
gender-based violence and discrimination.” 

UN S.G Ban Ki Moon remarked “…we especially need to speak out against rape and sexual violence in conflict. Governments must support victims and end the culture of impunity”.

Mahatma Gandhi asserted “I object to violence because when it appears to do good, the good is only temporary; the evil it does is permanent.”

At the same time, International Women’s Day is also an occasion for recognizing how much more is still needed to be done to support women and girls worldwide. I encourage everyone reading this to reflect on what each one of us can do to support women — to put words and ideas into action.

is through love. It is through love that women can be equal to men. Through love, a mother can be equal to her son, even though he may be the president of a nation”.Rev. S.M. Moon co-Founder of WFWPI
