Dina von Hahn - "The Politics of Women's History in Canada"
From CTLT User on February 8th, 2019
Presentation Date: October 26, 2016 Feminist activists have used a variety of strategies in an attempt to shape public policy in Canada. How does the portrayal of Women's History reflect their successes and failures? Dina von Hahn will reflect on this topic after twenty years in the community and the classroom. She teaches Political Science, Women's Studies, History and English at Northwest Community College. This lecture is also a part of Inspiring Women Among Us, which is an annual celebration leading up to the December 6th Day of Remembrance and Action Against Violence Against Women. This event offers a wide variety of public events that celebrate women’s contributions to Canadian and global societies and discuss ways society can support our female colleagues, friends and family members.
