Celebrating International Women's Day

International Women’s Day is celebrated around the world on March 8th. It is a day to reflect on the progress and achievements that have been made to advance the health, well-being, and equal rights of women and to renew commitments to continue forging a better, more gender inclusive world.


On this special day, we also celebrate the important work that SOGC members are doing every day to advance the health of women. As experts in the field of women’s health, we are at the forefront of providing care and compassion to women, as well as a voice for those women whose message goes unheard. 



On International Women's Day, and every day, the SOGC renews its commitment to ensuring that every woman has access to quality sexual and reproductive health care services.


We continue to work hard to provide our members with the tools and resources they need for their practice.


As we advocate for every woman’s right to access the full gamut of sexual and reproductive health services, we encourage our members to complete the SOGC’s online Medical Abortion Training Program and to stay abreast of the latest SOGC Clinical Practice Guidelines


However you decide to celebrate, the SOGC would love to hear from you! Let us know what you will be doing on March 8th and tell us what International Women’s Day means to you.
