On an annual basis, millions of women and men around the world celebrate International Women's Day on March 8th. In honour of International Women's Day, meet just a handful of the many women who help put science to work for Canada. The following "A Day in the Life" profiles were developed to give students a better idea of what it is like to work in a science or research lab, and to present the various career paths that are available in science, technology and engineering. 

In addition, Canadians from coast to coast are observing International Women's Week (5 – 11 March 2006). This year's theme is Beyond Laws: The Right to be Me, which addresses women's rights, women's diversity and the need to put words into action. This year also marks the silver anniversary of Canada's ratification of the most comprehensive international treaty on women's rights – the United Nations Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women which was ratified 25 years ago.
