YOU ARE INVITED!

As you may have heard, FemRev is organizing the 2nd RebELLEs Pan-Canadian Young Feminist Gathering to be held in Winnipeg, May 20-23, 2011! The first gathering took place in Montreal and hosted over 500 young women from every province and territory. It was an experience that launched the RebELLEs Movement, a pan-canadian young feminist network that is feisty, active and making waves.

 

The 2011 Gathering will work to empower young women and girls and to mobilizeenergizeand strengthen the feminist movement. It will provide opportunities for women and girls to develop leadership skills, share analyses and strategies for action, collectively work to improve the lives of young women, and to work within diversity in order to make meaningful contributions to the communities we are a part of. It is an opportunity to collectivize our struggles and make create concrete plans for change.

 

FemRev is hosting a local Consulta, a consultation process that will allow us to include various women’s perspectives and experiences in the development of the structure, content, and focus of the 2nd RebELLEs Pan-Canadian Young Feminist Gathering. These Consultas will be happening in communities across the country, as well as here in Winnipeg.
