S6E1: Feminist Birth Talks! The New Decade Part 1

Mai hosts her final series with co-host Leyla Shahid. They tackle the ambitious question of "Where does Canada need to go in 2020 when it comes to gender equality?" Dear Friends,

These are crazy times. So much has (rapidly!) changed and the COVID 19 pandemic has taken full control of life in Canada. This series teases out intersectionality and the privileges and injustices that are affecting so many people in so many different ways in Canada when it comes to reproductive justice.

Despite the onslaught of the coronavirus taking over our daily interactions, gender equality is as important as ever. We talk with some incredible gender equality advocates such as Rosemary Ganley, Dr. Karen Lawford and Joyce Arthur.

And there are a few things that have become more clear amidst the chaos:

1. Gender equality is more important than ever. We can see this as the COVID 19 crisis unfolds. While the impacts are felt by everyone, it is still vulnerable populations who remain most at risk.

2. When it comes to action governments can and will make change. Large change can happen on a grand scale. There is no excuse when it comes to universal health care, universal child care, and equal access to rights and opportunities. Everyone, regardless of gender, sex, class, race, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, abilities, culture, age or socioeconomic status deserves human rights.

3. As ordinary people we can and need to do better. Let us make sure our governments remain accountable to what the people really need.
