MWIL Talks: Female Voices in a New America

MWIL would like to invite self-identifying female McGill students to join us for an inspired discussion on women’s issues, rights, and voices in today’s sociopolitical context. In light of the recent U.S. election, we recognize that several of us may feel targeted, unrepresented, or at the very least, divided in thought. We encourage the constructive exploration of these issues in an inclusive environment that strives to recognize female resilience and solidarity.

As a campus group led by women for the empowerment of women, we feel that now more than ever is the time to reflect and rely on each other for support. To our female student leaders and leaders-in-the-making, we hope to see you there.
