Prime Minister Justin Trudeau claims that no one should be afraid to use the word “feminist.” Former secretary of state Madeleine Albright and American feminist Gloria Steinem chastise young women for selling out the cause for supporting Bernie Sanders over Hillary Clinton. Definitions of what actually defines a feminist are passionately contested, defended, rejected and redefined. On the 100th anniversary of women’s right to vote in Canada, Spur celebrates the accomplishments and contradictions of the feminist movement and explores feminism in practice. Spur invites a discussion about what feminism looks like today and what its futures might be.
The event will feature and introduction by Hope McIntyre of Sarasvàti Theatre a performance by Raine Hamilton and a performance by Spur Poet-in-Residence Mona Faith Mousa.
