Women's Rights Are Children's Rights - Barbara Silva talks to the Calgary Herald about International Women's Day
Our Communication Director, Barbara Silva was honoured to be included with three other amazing Calgary women , Mary Valentich, Hadiqa Jabeen and Sue Tomney all speaking about what International Women's Day means to them in 2017. Amazing group of women.
Silva says children’s rights go hand in hand with women’s rights:
We recognize that when we impede women, we inevitably impede children. Our inability to confront or improve women’s standing in poverty means we are also disproportionately affecting children in poverty, and that’s something we need to address.”
