October is Women’s History Month

Leave a comment

So let’s celebrate…and learn!

According to the Status of Women Canada, “October is Women’s History Month in Canada. Proclaimed in 1992 by the Government of Canada, Women’s History Month provides an opportunity for Canadians to learn about the important contributions of women and girls over time to our society – and to the quality of our lives in the 21st century.”

The 2009 Women’s History Month theme is Women in the Lead: Winter Sports. This is particularly relevant as Vancouver prepares to host the world for the winter Olympics in February.

Check out the Status of Women website for more details!


AND…October is also Breast Cancer Awareness month. Remind someone you love (and yourself!) to learn how to do a self breast exam or schedule a mammogram! 


YWCA Hamilton offers a post breast cancer exercise program called ENCORE.

If you’ve experienced breast cancer and are looking for a way to rebuild your stregth, confidence and to build community with other survivors call 905 522 9922 for more information!
