Over forty PSAC sisters attended the Vancouver Regional Women’s Committee International Women’s Day celebration and meeting in Vancouver, March 8th.
Participants heard short presentations from Janet Routledge, NDP candidate in North Burnaby and former PSAC staff member; Joanne Hay, Union of Postal Communications Employees National Executive Officer; and Jennifer Chieh Ho and Kelly Sidhu, PSAC BC Regional Council members.
They all spoke about the solidarity and support they get from fellow PSAC members every day, and how much it helps in their work with our union.
The speakers were also asked what their one wish for women would be on IWD. Answers included: equality for girls everywhere; the hope that one day women would stop having to try to prove they can do things as well as men; and that all women – regardless of age – would feel safe.
All in all, a fabulous and fun event! Kudos to everyone who attended and to the organizers.
