An Espanola woman feels that some women are not aware of the issues that still plague the quest for equality, so she was proud to take part in a march on Manitoulin Island highlighting women’s issues.

Heather Wilson, who holds a master’s degree in gender equality and social justice, says she took part in the first ever Women’s March in Kagawong this weekend to highlight several women’s issues including equal pay and violence against women.

Wilson says the march, organized by a diverse group of young women, gives her hope that women are more aware and ready to bring awareness for equality.

It took place Saturday to coincide with the Women’s March, a global, female-led movement, introduced to harness the political power of women and their communities held every January 21st.
While the primary march is held in Washington D.C, cities around the world are encouraged to host their own affiliate rallies to voice the unique concerns of their community.
