The recent Provincial Women's Conference in Toronto was well attended and well represented by 14 members from Region 4. The conference included several guest speakers and panel sessions of women who shared personal stories of struggle and survival through extremely difficult situations. If you have an opportunity, check out the films "Miss Representation" or "Solar Mamas", both are amazing films that show how far we have come and how much we have yet to do to achieve equality for women. http://opseu.org/committees/pwc/2013-womens-conference-review.htm
