Daughters Day is a community initiative to highlight the importance of the daughters in all our lives – every girl and woman is a daughter – and to support the flourishing of communities committed to an end to all discrimination and to stopping human rights abuses against women.

Community members in Edmonton resolved to increase awareness about loving, caring, and sharing daughters as human beings, mothers, and leaders in fields such as medicine, business, arts, education, and politics can have a great influence on more peaceful successful communities. We invite you to get involved.
