Today is International Women's Day - while attending events in your community celebrating women, please take time to reflect on women's situations in other places.
In Canada, MATCH International Centre is a Canadian women’s international organization guided by a feminist vision of sustainable development which recognizes the diverse realities of women and respects their efforts for self-determination... MATCH works in partnership with groups in Africa, Asia, the Caribbean and South America towards the empowerment of women and the practical enjoyment of human rights and fundamental freedoms through civil, political, economic, social and cultural justice.
MATCH is an organization I support.
To learn about the kind of projects MATCH assists, for instance, Rescue Foundation Ghana, see the MATCH website: http://www.matchinternational.org/
