Our identities are multifaceted and complex, in order to address gender-based inequality and violence we need to find ways to hear each other in order to effectively create social change that benefits everyone in the end. No one should be left behind. In keeping with this spirit Les EssentElles, the Victoria Faulkner Women’s Centre, Yukon Status of Women Council, and the Yukon Women’s Transition Home Society held a poster contest early March. It was decided that since March encompassed both International Women’s Day and the International Day to End Racial Discrimination, why not celebrate them both by having youth show us what they thought of working together across identities. Choosing the winners was no easy task and we are proud to showcase the three winners. Thank you to the Women’s Directorate for providing funding and What’s Up Yukon for being a supportive and involved community partner throughout this project!
