Honour Your Female-Identifying Residents on International Women’s Day/Month

March is International Women's Month, and it’s the perfect time to honour and recognize the amazing stories your women residents have to tell.

Start by highlighting stories of the women who live in your community by interviewing each one (who consents) and posting their answers to questions throughout your community newsletter, bulletin boards, table centerpieces, and more.

Here are a few questions you can ask during your interviews that could help you dive into their lives even more than a “typical” social history assessment:

  • Tell me about a time when it wasn’t easy to be a woman.
  • Did you ever have to stand up to a man when it wasn’t necessarily socially acceptable?
  • Have you ever marched in a protest?
  • Tell me about your education.
  • What’s the best part about being a woman?
  • What’s been the hardest part about being a woman for you?
  • What advice do you have for young women today?
  • Who were women you looked up to when you were young?
  • Was it hard to find female role models?
  • What makes a woman strong?

You can also highlight women throughout March by talking about one influential woman every day before exercise class or before lunch. Here’s to women!
