Join us at one of our cafes or events

WTC will build on and refine the intersectional work of Women Transforming Cities through continuing cafes. The Café series will engage and expand stake-holder dialogue and action, bringing together women leaders; urbanists; elected municipal officials; aboriginal, queer, immigrant and refugee-based organisations; young women’s groups; unions; universities; schools; housing advocates; violence against women activists; anti-poverty, child care, and health-based organisations; and others.  

 

Café events will take place in local neighbourhoods at community centres, classrooms and other public locations. The goal is to transform our cities into safe and healthy places where women and their communities live, work and play, are involved in design, development and sustainable operations, with electoral processes and municipal governments that are responsive to the priorities of women and girls.

Women Shaping Vancouver Summit - postponed

We were very excited to welcome the 170 people who have registered for the Summit on March 15 on how to create Women Friendly Cities and take "action on systemic barriers to women's participation in local government". Due to the COVID-19 crisis, we have postponed this event until the fall. We will let you know as soon as we have settled on a date, and we hope we will be able to see you in person then.

Women Shaping Surrey: Towards a Women-Friendly City

February 23, 2020

Thank you for coming out on February 23 to share ideas, views, and experiences at the "Women Shaping Surrey: Towards a Women-Friendly City". This summit was co-hosted by Women Transforming Cities and the Canadian Research Institute for the Advancement of Women (CRIAW-ICREF), in partnership with the Shakti Society.

The summit provided an opportunity for participants to discuss how they can most effectively work together to amplify the diverse voices of women and girls, and to ensure that a gendered perspective is applied to all city policies, programs, and activities.

Feminist City: How to build a more just, sustaible Vancouver

November 27, 2019

Who is the city of Vancouver built for? How does our city actively re-enforce social inequalities? And, most importantly, how do we revolutionize urban life in the name of social equality and justice?

The forum was held on November 27 at the Morris J. Wosk Centre for Dialogue and moderated by Ellen Woodsworth Founder and Co Chair of Women Transforming Cities.
