Honouring International Women’s Day with The Lavender House Flower Shop

Celebrating Canadian Women: A Journey Through History

As spring approaches, we’re reminded of a special day that resonates across the globe and holds a special place in the hearts of Canadians—International Women’s Day on March 8th. This day is not only a global celebration but also an opportunity to reflect on Canada’s unique contributions to the women’s movement and to honour the Canadian women who have led the charge for equality and justice.


Canada’s Legacy in Women’s Rights

Canada’s history is rich with stories of women who dared to challenge the status quo and fight for their rights. From the Famous Five, who in 1929 successfully challenged Canadian law to recognize women as “persons” eligible to serve in the Senate, to the ongoing advocacy for gender equality and Indigenous women’s rights, Canada’s journey is marked by milestones of courage and progress.


International Women’s Day in Canada serves as a reminder of these hard-fought victories and the work that continues. It’s a day to celebrate the achievements of Canadian women in all sectors of society—from politics and public service to the arts and sciences—and to reaffirm our commitment to gender equality.

Why We Celebrate

This day is an opportunity to highlight the contributions of women throughout Canadian history and to inspire future generations. It’s about acknowledging the progress made towards gender equality while recognizing the challenges that remain. Celebrating International Women’s Day is a way to show solidarity with women worldwide and to push for positive change.
