March 8th is International Women’s Day; a day dedicated to celebrating women’s achievements. So naturally, Canada’s sport community took this opportunity to highlight their female athletes.
Some of Canada’s summer sport federations joined together and used Twitter to not only highlight their amazing athletes, but talk about gender equity, role models and female achievements in sport. Here’s a snapshot of a few Canadian International Women’s Day tributes:
