Celebrating International Women’s Day

Screen grab from video: Malala Yousafzai, who stood up to educate us all

As Amelia Earhart once said, “Women must try to do things as men have tried. When they fail, their failure must be but a challenge to others.”

Every day, women around the world are challenging the status quo, standing up for themselves, their families and others, and bravely working to change the world.

Right here in Calgary, we’re seeing women working to better our city, build strong communities and supporting one another. Women are leading organizations, shattering glass ceilings and raising their families.

March 8 is International Women’s Day. In honour, I wanted to share my favourite video highlighting the great things women did in 2013. Yes, it is an ad, but it shares the story of a few of the amazing women who are making our world a better place to live.

Who inspires you in our city?
