Wildrose Shadow Status of Women Minister Angela Pitt today issued the following statement to recognize International Women’s Day:
“This day recognizes the incredible work that has been done by women, and the work that is still needed for all women and girls to truly achieve equal opportunity.
“Women are the pillars of their communities, leaders in business, trailblazers in science and technology, and so much more.
“This year in particular, I would also like to recognize the pioneering women who 100 years ago pushed the Alberta government to gain the right to vote.
“I am empowered by those brave suffragettes, and by the new generations of young women growing up in our province who inspire all of us to do better and strive for gender equality each and every day."
