Joint Event with McGill a Success!

The October 27th meeting was a landmark event for WINGS due to a record number of attendees, a high profile speaker and a chance to work with another great institute. We raised close to $2000.00 for the India Rescue Foundation through Child Care International. Marion Saint Picq gave an informative presentation about the important work that the foundation does. We were especially pleased to see so many young women interested in the presentation. Judy Norsigian's talk was informative and looked at an aspect of the problem of violence against women that is often omitted - the role of men and the most recent fight they have taken up in support of women.

Special thank to IGSF - the Institute for Gender, Sexuality, and Feminist Studies of McGill university for all their work on this event!

Thank-you to all the participants for their generous donations.
