Episode 8: Ellen Woodsworth and Women Transforming Cities

7:34pm - 8:07pm

Sunday December 6th is Canada?s National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women. This day of remembrance was started following the Ecole Polytechnique Massacre that happened in 1989 in Montreal, where 14 female engineering students were murdered by a man who hated feminists, and targeted them because of their gender.

In Vancouver on December 6th 2015, Women Transforming Cities hosted their 30th Cafe, with the topic: Does Remembering Lead to Action. I interview Ellen Woodsworth about how conversations about violence against women have changed since 1989, and where activism needs to focus moving forward.
