    Join us on Twitter for the #WomensMarch Twitter Chat and share your voice!  This week’s topic: Women's Health!

    Healthcare is the foundation of women’s well-being and economic stability. Women’s March Canada advocates for access to affordable and inclusive women’s healthcare regardless of nationality, age, race or ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation or disability.

    What is a Twitter Chat and How does it Work? 

    A Twitter chat is a live event on Twitter. Participation is open to all and contributions to the discussion can be made via tweets that include a specific hashtag, in our case #WomensMarch. Twitter chats are moderated and focused on a general topic with a guest. We'll be focussing each week on one aspect of the HERS framework. The use of a specific hashtag allows the Twitter chat to be viewed as a single conversation. To find out more about Twitter chats, click here.

    Hint: You can use TweetChat.com (we do!) or create a column in Hootsuite or TweetDeck (monitoring #WomensMarch) to follow and contribute to our #WomensMarch chat.

    House Rules during the Twitter chat:

    Say hello and introduce yourself to the group
    Start answers with A1, A2, A3...
    End tweets with the hashtag #WomensMarch
    Engage, enjoy and play nice!
