March 9: International Women's Day / Journée internationale des femmes panel discussion webcast
The prevalence of misogynist and discriminatory language and action in the recent U.S. election campaign reminds us that feminism remains necessary and relevant. The onslaught faced by Hillary Clinton and other women during this campaign is only one example. Canadian women in public life have faced similar abuse.
Join the Law Society, the Barbra Schlifer Commemorative Clinic, the Women's Legal Education and Action Fund (LEAF), the Women's Law Association of Ontario, and the Women Lawyers Forum of the OBA for a panel discussion about the challenges facing women running for, or serving in elected office in Canada. The discussion will explore the barriers women face when running for elected office, or engaging in grassroots activism, and why more do not rise to the highest political positions.
When: March 9, 2017, 5 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.
Where: Osgoode Hall, 130 Queen St. W., Toronto
