Stéphane Dion on Women's History Month

"This month, we dive into the history lived and written by women in Canada, celebrating the tremendous contribution women have made to the advancement of Canadian society.

"Since it was first established in 1992, Women's History Month has provided Canadians with an opportunity to learn more about women like Emily Murphy, Nellie McClung, Henrietta Muir Edwards, Louise McKinney and Irene Parlby who paved the way for women to be fully integrated into Canada's democratic institutions; women like Roberta Bondar, the first Canadian woman in space; women like Kim Campbell the first woman to hold the office of Prime Minister; and women like Louise Arbour who as a former Supreme Court Justice and former UN High Commissioner for Human Rights has inspired the next generation of Canadian women to write new chapters of our collective history with bold strokes.

"With one-third women candidates running for the Liberal Party of Canada, we are also working to make history today by electing more women to Parliament than ever before. What better way to mark Women's History Month than to write this important new chapter in the history of our country?"

- Stéphane Dion, Leader, Liberal Party of Canada
