Radisson Hotel Downtown (288 Portage Avenue)
12 – 2 pm (registration is from 11:30 – noon).
For 35+ years, Women’s Health Clinic has persisted in providing health services, education and advocacy from a distinctly feminist perspective. We have worked hard to influence how the healthcare system views women’s issues. Guided by women-centred analysis and evidence-based care, we have a strong history of resisting against the mainstream to ensure that clients have choices available to them and advocating the importance of putting women at the centre when planning and providing care.
Join us for lunch for our Annual General Meeting and acknowledge 35+ years of resistance and persistence by Women’s Health Clinic.
Registration is from 11:30 – noon. *If you have dietary restrictions, there is a spot to indicate them when you are purchasing your ticket.

Poster graphic design by Krishna Lalbiharie as adapted from original artwork by Indigenous artist, activist and journalist Angela Sterritt. It depicts an image of Lorelei Williams, as captured by her cousin, Farah Williams, at a MMIWG-themed street theatre action in Vancouver in 2012. Lorelei’s t-shirt features an image of her cousin, Tanya Holyk (23), who was murdered by Robert Pickton in 1996. Lorelei also bears a striking resemblance to her Auntie, Belinda Williams, who has been missing since 1977.

Update: June 2015 This campaign has ended. Thank you for your support!
More than 4,400 women and transgender individuals have gone missing or been murdered in Canada since 1946. We are honouring their lives by posting each of their names in the display windows at our Graham Ave clinic.
We’ve also launched a postcard campaign, Raise Your Voice, Strengthen Your Community, to encourage the federal government to pursue community engagement, education and awareness, funding for accessible programs that work, and the creation of a national strategy built on current research and existing reports, like the one compiled by the Native Women’s Association of Canada (NWAC).
Drop by the 3rd floor at 419 Graham to pick up a postcard. Mail it and send a message to the Canadian government to help stop gender-based abuse and violence.
