On Wednesday, March 25th, women and allies gathered despite the vancity rain, at Heartwood Community Café, to hear speakers, chat about women’s representation in media, and create media engagement tools. This was the first in the #fiercevoices women and media series, organized by rabble.ca and Women Transforming Cities (WTC).
The evening was kicked off by founder and editor of gender-focus.com, Jarrah Hodge, as well as popular radio personality and writer, Jen Sookfong Lee. They both spoke of their personal experiences, being women involved in media in various capacities. They also provided an overall analysis of female representation.
