International Women’s Day 2021 certainly feels different. Not being able to attend events to celebrate inspiring women is something we’re not used to. But of course, there are plenty of other ways we can rise up and show our appreciation. We’ve got a roundup of ongoing promotions and initiatives that align well with this year’s IWD theme, #ChooseToChallenge.
Canadian documentary Underplayed will be available to stream exclusively on Crave starting from March 8. The film discusses gender, ethnic, and sexual equality issues in the music space. And in honour of the special day, Bud Light Canada will donate $1 for each share of the trailer to Women in Music Canada.
