Being able to participate in a global movement is profoundly powerful. It’s important to be BRAVE and create the opportunities for discussion and change that you want to see. Of course, I say this now at thirty years old, but if you’d asked me five years ago if I’d ever do something like spearhead and speak at a rally for women’s rights, I would have laughed, then cried, then had an anxiety attack. And yes, all those things still happened, but I ALSO co-organized a strike. So to paraphrase Audre Lorde, when speaking and staying silent are both terrifying, decide to speak.
Watch a 7minute interview by Melissa Cilliers from CogecoTV Muskoa. She interviewed me about the upcoming Women’s Strike, which is a global event with countless local iterations. I am helping organize the rally that is taking place in Muskoka on March 8th 2017.
