By Jack Bourassa    International Women’s Day (IWD), March 8, is around the corner and I’m eagerly counting the days. As a man celebrating this day, I am aware that I am an ally. At the same time, I believe that we are all affected. To all my sisters: this is your day, let’s celebrate it together. Let’s remind ourselves of the victories achieved, take a deep breath and smile with gratitude and thank all women who are struggling to make this world better for all of us whether in our families, workplaces, communities, nationally and internationally.
