COVID-19 did not create the struggles women are currently facing, but highlighted and exasperated their existing struggles. On this episode, 3 feminists groups share the barriers women faced during the pandemic, from the perspective of women in prison, women working in the domestic and caregiving field, as well as women escaping male violence.
This episode features:
- Julie Diesta and Lotis Caluza from the Vancouver Committee for Domestic Workers' and Caregivers' Rights
- Alia Perini and Candice Pilgrim from Strength in Sisterhood (Advocates for incarcerated women)
- Sonam Khangura and Hilla Kerner from Vancouver Rape Relief and Women's Shelter
