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.
