International Women's Week

This year, Canadians will celebrate International Women's Week from Sunday, March 2 to Saturday, March 8, 2003, with the highlight being International Women's Day on March 8.

The Canadian theme for 2003 is World-Wide Women (WWW): Surfing the Digital Revolution!

The advent of new information and communication technologies (ICTs), such as the Internet, has revolutionized the way people communicate, access information, create networks, develop business opportunities, etc. While bringing important economic and social benefits, this revolution also poses challenges and risks. This theme encourages Canadians to take a closer look at the impact of ICTs, in particular Internet applications, on women and their use as a tool to empower women and to promote women's equality.

For more information, see Women and ICTs - a Status of Women Canada Fact Sheet.

Each day this week PLSJ will post links that celebrate the strength and diversity of women. Stay tuned!
