BLUEPRINTS FOR CHANGE – RYERSON RESIDENCE EDITION: The Discussion on Ending Violence against Women

TORONTO, ON – On Tuesday, October 11th and for the two following consecutive Tuesdays, residents from Pitman Hall, ILLC and O’Keefe House will participate in a discussion led by Jeff Perera, Co-Chairperson of the Ryerson White Ribbon Campaign, about men, women, the pressures that we all face and how it affects our lives and relationships. This engaging multimedia presentation will invite students to think about gender issues, the pressures that men and women face on a daily basis and how they can make a difference.


Blueprints for Change is an event that was first launched in 2010 and proved to be a huge success in its pilot year. During this hour-and-a-half session, students will also talk about the realities for women across campus and across the world, what Homophobia and Transphobia have to do with violence against women and most importantly, how we can become a part of the solution. Men are especially encouraged to attend.


This free event will take place on Tuesdays, October 11th, 18th and 25th at 7PM in the Marion Creery Community Room (2nd floor of Pitman Hall).


The Ryerson White Ribbon Campaign works to end gender-based violence and act towards change for both men and women.
