for International Women’s Day
Thursday, 2012 March 8, 5pm
East end of Bloor Street viaduct
(west of Broadview subway station,
north side parkette at Danforth and Cambridge)
Join Adriana Mugnatto-Hamu, Green Party of Canada candidate in the current by-election for Toronto-Danforth for a march in solidarity with people everywhere who seek equality for women, especially as elected representatives in government. In Canada, only 25% of our elected representatives in the House of Commons are women. Adriana is the only woman in a field of 11 candidates in the Toronto-Danforth by-election.
The United Nations maintains that a critical mass of one-third female representation is required in order for legislatures to produce public policy representing women’s concerns. If you think a ballot listing the names of 10 men and only one woman is just not acceptable, join our critical mass on the Bloor viaduct and stand in solidarity with omen on bridges around the world taking a stand for peace and women’s equality.
