We’ve created 31 Actions for Gender Justice to raise awareness, spark conversations and take action that transforms gender and power relations, and the structures, norms and values that underpin them. Every day for the month of March we will highlight an action that advances gender equity and justice for International Women’s Day (IWD).
Stand in Solidarity: October 4th and Beyond
31 Actions for Gender Justice: Day 6
Each year on October 4th, National Day of Action for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls, we honour the lives of all murdered and missing Indigenous women, girls, and Two-Spirit people, and demand action.
But we stand in solidarity all year round. Join our call for justice.
To learn more, we invite you to read:
- “National Day of Action for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, Girls, Trans, and Two-Spirit People” by BWSS.
- “Red Women Rising: Indigenous Women Survivors in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside,” by Downtown Eastside Women’s Centre, 2019.
- BWSS Indigenous Women’s Programs, cultural services run by Indigenous women for Indigenous Women.
This is by no means an exhaustive list! There’s so much more that we can do to advocate for political, economic and social changes.
