The news is disheartening: hundreds of missing aboriginal women, high poverty rates among single mothers, domestic abuse of women and children, lack of equal pay for equal work, low percentage of female elected officials... In September, over 120 people met with Governor General Michaelle Jean to address these and other obstacles to women's security.
Please come to learn about what happened and what still needs to be done to improve women's security in all its dimensions in Canada. Along with Beth Bilson (Acting Dean, Law) and Omeasoo Butt (History graduate student and President of the Graduate Students Association), Pam Jordan (History) will be hosting an informal discussion about the Governor General's Conference on Women and Security. An open discussion with the audience will follow formal remarks.
All are welcome.
