This Thursday October 30, I will host the third annual Women's Forum des femmes in Ottawa (WFDF14).
The past two years have set the foundation, leading us collectively to begin 'Building the Feminist Agenda'. This year's Forum theme is about fighting for a feminist vision of our lives, our communities, our country and our world.
We'll start the day with our panel on 'Building the Feminist Agenda'. We are honoured to host feminist leaders who will explore diverse experiences of gender inequality and provide ideas on how to move forward.
Here are this year's panelists:

"Fellow feminists," was how Niki Ashton greeted the crowd at Women's Forum 2013, held earlier last week in Ottawa. It was a fitting address; the women who joined her on stage throughout the day were passionate, they were fiesty and they didn't shy away from using the f-word.
Well over 100 people attended the forum, now in its second year. Ashton, the forum organizer, made headlines in 2008 when she became the second youngest woman ever elected to the House of Commons.
