Let’s hear your #FierceVoices!

Women Transforming Cities has teamed up with rabble.ca to bring you #FierceVoices, a community series focusing on women and girls in media.

#FierceVoices is back with our second event in the series: #FierceVoices: Building capacity.

As our first event focused on critical analysis on representation of women in media, our second aims to build capacity for women and girls working/or wanting to work with their own forms of media. It will focus on building skills and sharing tools to engage with. Come out on Thursday, April 30th (location to be confirmed) for another night of speakers and hands-on activities, designed to give women and girls an opportunity to actively share their public voice!
