Who's behind #LNFBForum2019
? This week, you'll get to know the rad women who act as our Forum execs, and who are working so hard to put this National Forum together!
Meet Sam, a third year student at the @schulichlaw.
She is a #vegetarian
, an #activist
, and an advocate in many areas of #socialjustice
. She shares her life with a three-footed German Shepherd named Honey, who is a rescue from Mexico. Training and playing with her are among her favourite ways to unwind. She has been a #feminist
since before she even knew what #feminism
was! Her particular brand of feminism is multifaceted, reflecting a passion for (and involvement with) a broad scope of #feministissues
. It is also #intersectional
, and she acknowledges and seeks to understand the unique sets of challenges that #racialized
+, criminalized, and other already-vulnerable groups of women still face in modern society. One form of #activism
her feminism has taken relates to #womensbodies
and, in particular, how that #patriarchal
structure of Canadian society positions women's bodies as second class. She believes that #LawNeedsFeminismBecause
is incumbent upon our #legalsystem
(and all those who claim to serve it) to address, reject, and disassemble the #statusquo
when said status quo leaves any persons or groups vulnerable. The time for #reform
is now. The place for feminism is here.
Our Forum execs are planning an amazing National Forum, and can't wait for you to join us for this one-of-a-kind feminist gathering in Halifax on FEB 23, so get your tickets now : https://bit.ly/2HcTQvq
