AWAM’s White Ribbon Campaign is back and this year we will be kicking off the campaign with the White Ribbon Public Forum which is intended as a space for discussion and dialogue between men and boys.

As this campaign calls on men and boys to stand up against violence against women, our speakers will provide their insights, as men who represent different aspects of society – art, music, law, and the social sciences.

The details of the White Ribbon Forum are as follows:
Date: 5th September 2015 (Saturday)
Time: 9:15am to 11:30am
Venue: MIEA Training Room

AWAM invites you to be the voice of change and end violence against women. To register, click here.

AWAM’s August Feminist Friday: Representation of Minorities in the Media

FF

Media is an incredibly important tool in today’s society and, as such, has a huge impact on those who consume it. The ways in which it can affect the way we see ourselves as well as others are endless.

A recurring problem within the media industry is the lack of representation of minorities. Think about your favorite tv show or movie. Pick up a magazine. How many people identify as queer? How many people defy what’s seen as the “ideal” body size? How many people are from different ethnic backgrounds?

Join us at the AWAM Centre on Friday, August 21st @ 7pm for a discussion on representation of minorities in the media and what we can do to be more cognizant of what we’re watching and reading on a daily basis. ‪#‎RepresentationMatters‬
