International Women's Day

Today is a day dedicated to celebrating women, it's International Women's Day.

Several organizations are holding events to celebrate and empower women across the county including, Enterprise Renfrew County, the Women's Sexual Assault Centre and the Township of the Whitewater Region. 

Community Living Upper Ottawa Valley is also starting the day holding an International Women's Day breakfast in downtown Pembroke. 

Women's Rights Activists have been championing change this past year through the #TimesUp movement and closing the gender pay gap. 

A French newspaper is marking today by charging men more to buy their paper, to mimic that gap.
