Our experiences of violence impact our lives and our activism. To challenge patriarchy, colonialism and capitalism, we need to be able to defend ourselves and our communities. Join us for a physical self-defense workshop and a discussion about gender norms and the right to anger and healthy agression, and the pathologizing of women who fight back.
Time: Saturday, March 2, 2:00-5:00 PM
Location: Toronto Newsgirls Boxing Gym, 388 Carlaw Av, Unit #108
(Located just south of Gerrard St, on the main floor of the building.)
Trainer: Jen Danch is an activist, amateur boxer and survivor of gender-based violence. She is currently the Coordinator of Shape Your Life, a free recreational boxing project for women and trans survivors of violence. www.torontonewsgirls.com/shapeyourlife
