Edmonton`s First Daughters Day

The city of Edmonton proclaimed September 1, 2012 as Daughter’s Day in Edmonton. This year, over 400 Edmontonians gathered in Churchill Square to promote gender equality and recognize the important contributions that women make to Canadian society. The mayor of Slave Lake, Karina Pillay-Kinnee, was the keynote speaker and representatives from all levels of government were present to show their support. Awards were presented for “Daughters of the Year to Romuna Monzur, Renee Vaugeois, Faye Dewar. Recipients of the award all displayed courage and are strong advocates and role model of women and girls everywhere. There were also other speakers, music and performances celebrating women. Thank you to all that supported Daughters Day!
