Mr. Speaker, on March 8 we celebrate International Women's Day. Canadian women make vital contributions to communities across our country every day. For years women have stood up against sexism and inequality.
Women's contributions to our farms, our businesses and our homes make our communities vibrant and dynamic. While women have come a long way toward true gender equality, we know that issues such as gender-based violence, sex trafficking and unequal representation to disproportionately affect women.
Canada's Conservatives are hard at work to put forward constructive ideas that benefit Canadian women in every region of our country. We are committed to empowering women and girls to achieve their full potential. We know that women will succeed and all Canada will benefit.
Happy International Women's Day.
