Event description

Description

Join us in a timely conversation about sexism and gender-based violence against women in leadership.
Within the past few months, we have heard many stories of sexual violence experienced by women in various industries. Gender-based and sexual violence in politics, however, remains a rarely discussed issue; even when we have these conversations, we fail to acknowledge the effects of intersectionality on how marginalized women in positions of power often experience higher rates and different forms of violence.
At this event, we hope to diversify the discourse around women's civic engagement and leadership by addressing how sexism combined with racialization and discrimination shape the experiences of women in political leadership.
We will be joined by TDSB Trustee Ausma Malik, and student leader Masuma Khan.

This event was made possible with support from the Inspirit Foundation.
