Revolution is sweeping the Arab world. In Tunisia, Bahrain, Egypt and now Libya, women are playing a central role in these movements. In so doing they are defying stereotypes and inspiring struggles all over the world by showing the possibility of genuine women’s liberation. At the same time, the government of Stephen Harper continues to attack women’s rights here in Canada. Join the International Socialists for this one-day conference as we examine the roots of women’s oppression, why it persists today and what can be done to fight it.
