This gathering will bring together young women and young feminists from all horizons. In continuation of the Quebec young feminist gathering “S’Unir pour etre rebELLES” which united more than 200 young feminists in 2003, “Waves of Resistance” seeks to:

-Share our analysis of feminist issues and take action -Share our experiences as young women -Discuss our priorities as young feminists -Discuss how to resist and fight against all right-wing influence (moral, political, economical, etc.) -Create links of solidarity between young feminists throughout all of Canada -Reinforce the young feminists’ movement in Canada

This invitation is to all young women, between 14 and 35 years of age, with diverse political views and identities, from all regions, cultures and languages, with an interest in feminist issues and struggles!
