The theme for International Women's Day on March 8, 2008 is Strong Women,  Strong World. To celebrate this important day, we created a display of Library materials that focus on topics such as Women's Rights, Women in Politics, Sex Discrimination Against Women, Women Suffrage, Violence Against Women and more.

We encourage all University of Lethbridge Library users having current borrowing privileges to borrow items on display.

"In 1977, the United Nations General Assembly adopted a resolution calling on member states to proclaim a day for women's rights and international peace. Following the United Nations' lead, Canada chose March 8 as International Women's Day.

Every year since 1977, Canadians have marked International Women's Day by celebrating progress toward women's full participation, reflecting on the challenges and barriers that remain, and considering future steps to achieving equality for all women, in all aspects of their lives. International Women's Day provides an opportunity to celebrate the collective power of women - past, present and future" (Status of Women Canada website).
