Feminist Movement - Where to now?
No movement has been as important to social progress as the global thirst for women's equality, demonstrated in scattered ways over 2500 years of patriarchal rule. It has come to a head in the 20th century, with increased knowledge and awareness, organization, activism, legislation and education. The worldwide pandemic of COVID-19 has revealed huge deficits in women's status, in Canada and around the world. These forums will examine both the gains, and the challenging unfinished business in achieving true gender equality.
