Event description
Two decades of neoliberalism have destroyed a structured, pan-regional feminist movement in Canada.

About this Event

In Take Back the Fight: Organizing Feminism for the Digital Age, Nora Loreto examines the state of modern feminism in Canada and argues that feminists must organize to take back feminism from politicians, business leaders and journalists who distort and obscure its power. Furthermore, Loreto urges today’s activists to overcome the challenges that sank the movement decades ago, to stop centering whiteness as the quintessential woman’s experience, and to find ways to rebuild the communities that have been obliterated by neoliberal economic policies. Join Nora Loreto in conversation with local columnist and activist Erica Iffil.
