We spoke about the RebELLEs young feminist gathering that occurred in Winnipeg from May 20th-May 23rd on the show a couple of weeks ago. You can listen here for the next two weeks.
If you are interested in hearing more about the gathering, check out this piece on Rabble.
While we remember that process is essential, we need to remember not to let process impede action. As imperfect as our movement may be, it is still important to take action on issues which we can all agree on. Action and process need to co-exist, and should happen simultaneously. RebELLEs will continue to speak out against the injustices we see, within ourselves and also within the oppressive structures around us. While we strive to live justly and struggle with our internal challenges, we will not lose our momentum for action. We will use these new fires, new friendships and new level of trust to propel us forward as agents of change. This growing process is a struggle, and it is also a joy, as we continue to fight against oppression of women everywhere.
