Proclamation

I, Jeff Lehman, Mayor of the City of Barrie hereby proclaim
March 8, 2022 asInternational Women’s Day
WHEREAS; Celebrated annually on March 8th, International Women’s day has occurred for well over a century, with the first gathering in 1911 supported by over a million people. Today, International Women’s Day belongs to all groups collectively everywhere; and
 
WHEREAS; Today is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating women's equality; and
 
WHEREAS; The world has made unprecedented advances, but no country has achieved gender equality. We can see this in all career streams with less than 25% of parliamentarians being women. The gender gap is still present in various streams of society, and today is a day to acknowledge that and continue to make strides towards closing it; and
 
WHEREAS; On Tuesday, March 8 at 11:30am we will be raising a flag at City Hall to mark International Women’s Day. For more information about the Women and Children’s Shelter of Barrie’s Online involvement please contact katie@barrieshelter.com or www.barrieshelter.com.
 
THEREFORE, I, Jeff Lehman, Mayor of the City of Barrie, do hereby proclaim March 8, 2022 as “International Women’s Day” and encourage all residents to support initiatives that help to end gender based violence.


- Jeff Lehman, Mayor of the City of BARRIE
