Press for Progress is the theme for this year’s International Women’s Day.
Here are some facts that will hopefully encourage all of us to press for progress:
- In Canada, gender-based violence(GBV) affects approximately half of all women
- Canadian women earned 87 cents an hour for every dollar that a man earns
- Women holding a bachelor’s degree have a median income of $68,342 in 2016, while men with the same level of education earned $82,082.
