March 8th is International Women’s Day, a day to celebrate the contributions and accomplishments of women and recognize the ongoing work of creating a more equitable and inclusive society.
The Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences invites you to join us as we celebrate the achievements of women within the SFU community, challenge gender stereotypes and biases against women, and work towards gender equity.
Here are a few of the events organized for International Women's Day this year at SFU:
WEKH Wiki-Edit: Adding Women to the Story | Mar. 6-8
SFU VentureLabs will be partnering with WEKH BC (Women Entrepreneurship Knowledge Hub) to host their Wikipedia Edit-a-thon. Help showcase incredible women who lead various industries by nominating them to be included in the event.
The Juggling Mother: Coming Undone in the Age of COVID | Mar. 8, 2-4pm
SFU Public Square is hosting a conversation between Amanda D. Watson, lecturer in the Department of Sociology and Anthropology, and Michelle Eliot, host of CBC Radio One's BC Today. They will discuss how the COVID-19 pandemic has exposed and intensified the challenges of the idealized version of motherhood in The Juggling Mother.
Organized by SFU Ceremonies and Events, three incredible Indigenous leaders will discuss the realities of gender-based violence in communities and teach us about the spiritual pathway to wellness and healing: the 'Red Road.’
How do we talk about military sexual violence and why does it matter? | Mar. 8, 7-8:30pm
The Departments of Political Science and International Studies will be presenting a special lecture including research from a multi-year comparative research project on military sexual violence in Canada, the U.S., and Australia.
