Major snow storm doesn’t stop IWD Toronto 2023

In spite of a major snow storm that struck the Greater Toronto Area with trees down, electricity out, and roads unplowed, the International Women’s Day rally and march was a huge success!

People came out in large contingents from unions and community organizations, along with many individuals who filled the hall, and participated in a spirited march led by the Eagle Women Singerz.

Thank you to our rally speakers and performers who brought their knowledge and uplifting energy:

  • Dr. Catherine Brooks, Anishnawbe Kwe Elder
  • Chloe Tse, Ontario Health Coalition
  • Eagle Women Singerz
  • Gloria Turney, Personal Support Worker, Service Employees International Union (SEIU)
  • Laura Walton, President of Ontario School Board Council of Unions
  • Leny Rose, President of Migrante Ontario
  • Minoo Derashan, Iranian activist
  • South Asian Women’s and Immigrant’s Services
  • Yolanda McClean Secretary Treasurer of CUPE Ontario and President of the Coalition of Black Trade Unionists (CBTU)

IWD Toronto will be back on the streets in 2024!
