Women's Day blog censored by Canadian Museum for Human Rights, says author

Author’s note: This post was commissioned as an IWD blog by the Canadian Museum for Human Rights. It was initially approved and posted by the Museum on 4 March 2014. It was, however, almost immediately withdrawn as ‘Communications’ at the Museum deemed the one line comment on the current federal Conservative government unacceptable as written. The offer of a substantive footnote and illustrative example from the author brought no reply. ActiveHistory.ca has reposted this time-sensitive contribution here, to which examples of anti-women policies and a footnote have been added.

Ensuring Feminist, Anti-Oppression Service Delivery

Community services like transition houses and shelters are crucial in creating supportive, accessible spaces for folks needing support. But sometimes even these organizations and agencies can fall short in ensuring inclusivity and accessibility for all.

 

This manual is a guide for “implementing an integrated, anti-racist, feminist service delivery system” at community agencies. Whether you’re an employee or leader at such an organization, a community activist, or someone looking to access these community services, demanding a commitment to developing more accessible and welcoming spaces is super important.
