International Women's Day, which takes place March 8 every year, is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. It is also an opportunity to take action towards advancing gender equality.

PSAC BC's Reginal Womens Committees in Vancouver, Victoria, the Okanagan, and Prince George invites members to join them at various events that are being held across the province. Here's a list of events that we'll be updating periodically - check back!

On Sunday, March 4, 2018, family, friends and community members will gather to mark the 11th anniversary of the tragic and preventable deaths of three women farmworkers: Sukvinder Kaur Punia, Sarbjit Kaur Sidhu and Amarjit Kaur Bal, who were killed as they were being transported to work in an overcrowded and unsafe van on March 7, 2007.

The ceremony will be followed by a candlelight procession to the Golden Tree Farmworkers Monument.
