Event description

Description

Join us as we launch our #LiftHerUp Campaign. This event and campaign are in support of women in politics and public life. Women have the right to feel empowered and safe participating in public life as politicians, public figures and through their contributions to public discourse.

This is a call to action to end sexist and violent language and behaviours towards women in public life -- during and beyond the upcoming municipal elections.


Speakers:

  • Jan Reimer - ACWS Executive Director
  • Marina Banister - University of Alberta's Student Union President
  • Lana Cuthbertson - Equal Voice, Alberta North Chapter Chair


ACWS is asking candidates to:

  • Influence the nature, tone and content of public discourse during this election period.
  • Bring attention and change to the unacceptable treatment of female candidates and officials.
  • Place accountability mechanisms in place to hold municipal politicians and trustees to account for their behaviour after the election.
