As an organization based in Vancouver, we wanted to highlight the powerful women who will be competing in the Games and work with them to bring attention to the importance of women’s leadership and women’s equality! We believe that these women are fabulous role models for young women and we wanted to work with them to ensure that the Vancouver Olympics has a legacy of leadership for young Canadian women!

What kind of city do you want Vancouver to be? Will we see deep cuts to the
Parks Board, more shifting of the commercial tax base to residential taxpayers, or stepped-up investment in affordable housing to address our deepening homeless crisis?
Each year, the City of Vancouver holds a public consultation process for the upcoming civic budget. Think City wants to bring more people into this process so more Vancouverites can get informed and more citizens can be heard.

In 1971, Sarah Weddington, along with Linda Coffee, argued the winning side of the landmark case Roe v. Wade, which legalized abortion in the United States. Admist the backdrop of a US Supreme Court that is currently divided on the issue of abortion, Sarah recognizes and fears that Roe vs. Wade could be easily overturned. According to the Vancouver Sun, she always wonders whether younger women have any idea of what life was like back “then” and feels there is still a need for the pro-choice movement and the protection of women’s rights. Indeed, I’m sure we all agree. Come listen to Sarah share her experience and insight at the Orpheum Theatre tonight!
