This is a women's event open to anyone who identifies as a woman or would like to participate in a women's space. We operate from an anti-racist and anti-oppressive framework.

SAFER SPACE POLICY

We collectively strive to create spaces that are free of as many barriers as possible as a means of working towards liberation. This means that we are all responsible for creating the spaces we desire, by educating ourselves, each other and ensuring that we are continually engaging in these conversations and creating relationships of support and collective responsibility. While we recognize that no space is exclusively “safe” for anyone, we must collectively work towards mitigating harms.

We work towards recognizing dynamics of power and privilege that exist within society and which have historically oppressed racialized, queer and other communities. We believe that these same dynamics and tensions exist within our own communities and we are working continuously towards addressing these tensions and creating supportive spaces. Folks participating in our events are asked to be aware of their language and behaviour and to think about whether these may be harming others. Our spaces are not spaces for explicit or implicit violence, racism, sexism, ageism, transphobia, cissexism, sizeism, fatphobia, sexual harassment, and gender policing, or doing anything to another person without their consent. Acting in a way that disrespects, harms others or undermines these values will not be tolerated at any time. We reserve the right to assess and manage circumstances and situations in the best interest of our collective vision towards creating ‘liberation’ and ‘safer’ spaces.

Yet we must acknowledge that in this learning space we cannot completely guarantee safety. Given the world we navigate is with it’s own experiences and narratives of racism, classism, ableism, homophobia etc., we must engage in critical conversations and dialogues that will explore said narratives in a real world environment.
