Feminism in an Era of Populism and Patriarchy
May 31, 2019 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pmFree
This session focuses on different strands of feminism and how feminists have worked and responded to populism and patriarchy. This workshop is timely given politics in Canada and the US. Federal and provincial politics in Canada continue to offer women challenges. We have witnessed a continued move to the right in this country and fewer women as leaders of the major parties and as premiers in the provinces. Likewise, we see that not enough is being done to help women from marginalized communities. The workshop will include reference to Indigenous women, LGBTQ, youth, and other marginalized. This session will run like a workshop where there will be a presentation and facilitated discussion. There will also be pair and share exercises.
