International Women’s Day PACKET 2017

The CUUWA (Canadian Unitarian Universalist Women’s Association) invites all congregations across Canada to celebrate International Women’s Day in a service on one of the Sundays close to March 8, International Women’s Day.

This year, we have compiled a theme package to help congregations and individuals plan their IWD activities. Our theme is It’s Simple: We Need Change Now. You can find a large packet of materials to use in services and programs in March and throughout the years to come at:

We hope that, one day, there will be International Women’s Day services in all congregations of the Canadian Unitarian Council. We provide outlines for services and other resources for IWD on the CUUWA website: and on our Facebook page, Canadian UU Womens’ Association:

We would love to hear if/how you have used any of these materials, what your congregation did to recognize IWD, photos from your activities, and service ideas focused on women and/or feminism. Please send them to, and let us know if you give us permission to use them on our website and/or Facebook page.
