Oxfam Canada's Gender Justice Summit - Toronto 2010

...What does gender equality have to do with humanitarian response?
...Why is the climate crisis a women's rights issue?
...How should we really go about reducing child and maternal mortality?
...How are men helping to achieve gender justice around the world?

Provocative questions about the issues that matter. Powerful voices for change. At Oxfam Canada's Gender Justice Summit in Toronto on June 18-20, 2010, join hundreds of change makers from across Canada, to meet and discuss our role in the global movement for change.

Happening in Toronto the weekend before the G8/G20 meetings, the Gender Justice Summit will be a dynamic gathering of Oxfam supporters, academics, advocates, researchers, policy-makers, and activists from around the world.

The themes of the weekend will include gender based violence, maternal health, poverty, security, climate change, and food security. Oxfam program partners will come from around the world - from Ethiopia, Zimbabwe and South Africa to Nicaragua, El Salvador and Guatemala - to share about their local grassroots work on the front lines of social change.

The Gender Justice Summit will run parallel to the People's Summit. The tandem pairing of these summits will add an additional layer of collaboration to both events.

Thank you for reading this story…

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.

rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.

So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.

And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
