Please take the time to watch this video. It unpacks the lack of abortion access in the eastern Canadian provinces of New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island. Access to abortion services in the maritimes are close to non-existent and it is imperative that we raise awareness of this issue. Women and youth in NB and PEI are often silenced due to rapidly ageing and largely conservative populations that dismiss abortion as myth. Please help us to end the silencing nature and regressive politics of our beautiful home by raising awareness of our lack of basic health care procedures.
Congratulations to Fredericton Youth Feminists for taking a stand.
The university that one of my good friends attends recently announced that they’re going to cut funding for their women and gender studies program. It was only available as a minor concentration in the first place, with four courses all taught by one professor. Women’s studies programs are essential to bringing diverse viewpoints and intersectionality to our university campuses and just because a school is small doesn’t mean it shouldn’t have access to these sorts of courses. If you wouldn’t mind taking a moment to sign this petition it would be greatly appreciated!
