IWD Alternative Shabbes Potluck
Twenty years ago social activists Kiké Roach and Judy Rebick wrote a book called Politically Speaking. The book took “a new look at some of the issues that have troubled our hearts and minds over the past decade: racism, Québec sovereignty, identity politics, the changing nature of work, the power of the media, violence against women, and the future of the women’s movement and the left.”
Join us for an International Women’s Day Alternative Shabbes Potluck event, featuring Kiké Roach and Judy Rebick reflecting on the themes raised in Politically Speaking and on where feminist and anti-racist struggles are at currently in 2018.
Kiké Roach is a civil rights lawyer and the Unifor Sam Gindin Chair in Social Justice and Democracy at Ryerson University. She has served as an Executive Member of the National Action Committee on the Status of Women, the National Conference of Black Lawyers and the Women’s Coalition for Employment Equity, among other community organizations. She is co-author with Judy Rebick of the book, Politically Speaking, on feminism and Canadian politics.
Judy Rebick is one of Canada's best known feminists. She was President of the National Action Committee (NAC) on the Status of Women from 1990–1993 and a spokesperson for the Ontario Coalition for Abortion Clinics in the 1980s. In 1996, she co-wrote a book with Kiké Roach called Politically Speaking. Her new book, a memoir called Heroes in My Head, will be out in early April.
