Across Canada and around the world today, people are marking International Women's Day. Started in 1911, it's a day when we are all meant to take time and reflect on women's role in society, the powerful, amazing women in our lives and the continuing struggle for actual equality between men and women.

To mark the the day, here's a round up of some of the articles we've published via the Media Co-op and The Dominion that speak to some of the reasons why we need to continue to fight for women's rights, and not just today, but every day of the year:
