Women and Autonomy”, an Interactive
by Rosella Melanson
Executive Director, New Brunswick Advisory
Council on the Status of Women
Directrice générale, Conseil consultatif sur la
condition de la femme auNouveau-Brunswick.
Violence against women is often made easier
by women's lack of economic autonomy. Many
other inequities also limit women, including
devaluation of women's paid and unpaid work,
sexual harassment, lack of day care and lack of
gendered analysis for policies and programs.
The New Brunswick Advisory Council on the
Status of Women discusses the effect of these
inequities and the actions needed to correct them.
Presenter: Nela Rio, Organizer and Coordinator
of Outspoken Art/Arte Claro.

Workshop. Writing for Real, by Gail Taylor.
Writing for Real, is a 2-hour workshop to locate
points-of-entry into your life through writing. We will
experiment with writing the unique individual rhythms
of looking inward to the self and raising observation
out towards the world. Exercises in generative
visualizing and writing will be used to release words,
and lots of tips provided on how to use image and
syntax to structure new meaning. The workshop will
act as a catalyst to access the creative energy
released by exercising authentic voice.
Preferably by registration.
