Is the Women's Movement Dead? with Rosemary Ganley
This workshop of three hours will examine the uneven progress of women today, and the setbacks, such as return of the Taliban, the reversal of sexual rights in the U.S. and the incidence of violence against women in Canada. It will also look at the successes, such as the number of women in post-secondary education, the achievements of women leaders and the solidarity among women’s movements. One’s head spins.
Rosemary Ganley, a Peterborough feminist activist who recently received an honorary doctorate from Trent University, will lead the discussions that seek to slow the spinning, scan the community and make some plans.
Use will be made of readings, poetry and participants’ experience. Each class will focus on different realities. Readings will be supplied.
Join with other concerned people in a lively session.
