WHAT WE STAND FOR
Dreams and objectives of establishing a Civil Society in Canada with its population from 193 nationalities, dozens of religions, dozens of cultures, and dozens of languages cannot be achieved unless 50 percent of the population – females – achieve gender equality with the other 50 percent without the threat of violence and discrimination.
The mission of Daughters Day is for the elimination of gender inequality, violence, and discrimination against girls and women at home, at school, in the workplace, and on the street. We will also be celebrating achievements and successes of girls and women on Daughters Day, as well as their dreams and aspirations.
Daughters Day began with a celebration on September 1, 2012, in Edmonton’s Churchill Square. The celebration included speakers who educated about the role of daughters in building a civil society and shared messages to respect human rights of girls and women, and to abhor violence against them.
