Our Blog: Y Women
From November 25, the International Day to Eliminate Violence against Women and Girls, to December 6, our National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women, YWCA Canada's Rose Campaign draws attention to violence against all women and girls and the need for action. The campaign name originates from a rose button created after 14 young women were murdered on December 6, 1989 in Montréal at L’École Polytechnique.
The weeknight streets are full, coffee shops are buzzing, and the radio stations are full of festive tunes. It’s a time of year YWCA Cambridge staff love: from their holiday themed window display to cookie decorating workshops, there’s no shortage of joy around here.
I had a few moments to catch up with Mya Kidson recently, and she’s someone we think you should know all about! A Roots of Empathy student and an active member in YWCA Cambridge Girls’ Centre programs, Mya is an outstanding leader, but not a “typical leader”… and that’s worth celebrating.
