International Women's Day is a day when we come together to forge the path to women's equality.
The theme for 2022, was to #BreakTheBias.
In the spirit of this day—and to celebrate the one-year anniversary of the Alberta Women's Health Foundation (AWHF) launch, as well as all of the progress that's been made to improve the state of women's health in our province—we proudly unveiled this video from the AWHF, entitled "We Are Not Equal."
We invite you to watch, share, and discuss within your circles:
The fact is, many deep-rooted gender biases still exist in our society, which has led to gaps in women's health and women's health research. These biases have negatively impacted the opportunity for women to be healthy.
This video was created to inspire us all to see the world a little differently—or, "to change and open minds," as stated by Jared Mauldin, the young man whose letter inspired the story.
If you would like to share your own story of experiencing gender bias, please click here. Our goal is to raise more awareness around this issue to eliminate biases, stereotypes and discrimination on an ongoing basis.
We are also proud to share that "We Are Not Equal" went on to win the award for the category of "Best Promotional Production." at the 48th annual AMPIA Rosie awards. Click here to read more about the award.
