Arts 4 Choice opening in Toronto

May 9th, 2008     by Jessica Yee     Comments

20 years ago women in Canada won the historic right to abortion on demand. While the vast majority of Canadians support this right, it is still a choice that often stigmatizes women. These simple portraits show women who have made the choice to have an abortion for what they are: sisters, mothers, neighbours, lovers, friends. These portraits and stories give women voice in a society that so often keeps them silent.

Portraits by Kathryn Palmateer Opening: May 15th, 7-10pm Tinto Coffee House 89 Roncesvalles Ave, Toronto

Dance performance by Elizabeth Dawn Snell Musical Performance by Laura Repo MC: Jessica Yee

The show in Toronto runs from May 11th - June 1st.

Kathryn will be travelling across Canada after the Toronto show and is still looking for participants, so if you or someone you know is interested in being part of this important project, check out the newly launched website or e-mail
