Weaving Wisdom: Imagining the Future of Feminism

  • Hart House 7 Hart House Circle Toronto, ON, M5S 3H3 Canada (map)

Despite improvements made in the past century around women’s rights, the growing demand for equality in response to the urgent issues we face has pushed dialogue around feminism into sharper focus. What does the future of feminism look like?

That essential question will be the subject of the second instalment of Hart House’s 100th Anniversary Centennial Debate Series. On Tuesday, September 10th, 2019 we will host a contemporary approach to a historic, ground-breaking debate staged at Hart House in 1929, where Canada’s first female Member of Parliament, Agnes Macphail debated the resolution, “This house views that the emancipation of women has been a failure”.  

Now, a scant 90 years later, we invite you to join with us as we reimagine that debate as a dynamic public conversation led by an intersectional and intergenerational circle of leading feminist thinkers and doers. Together, we will consider where the feminist movement in Canada has been, where it is today, and where it can take us tomorrow.
