What can we do to end violence against women? A film screening Wednesday, Nov. 9, provides an occasion for a community discussion on this question.
The documentary “The Smallest Steps” provides some answers through the interconnected stories of four women, each beginning their own journey to end violence against women in Canada. The film provides a glimpse into how ordinary women are working towards extraordinary change.
Wednesday’s event will open at 5 p.m. with a community organization fair and reception followed by the screening at 6 p.m. and a 7 p.m. question-and-answer session with a film contributor and local experts.
Free and open to the public, it is set for the School of Creative Arts Armouries building at 37 University Ave. East. Note: masks are required to be worn for the film screening.
The event is presented by the Health Research Centre for the Study of Violence against Women and co-sponsored by the Violence against Women Co-ordinating Committee Windsor-Essex, Women’s and Gender Studies in the School of Social Work, and Faculty of Law.
