Speaking Her Mind final program


We asked poet and novelist Lee Maracle for a sneak peek at the presentation she’s planning for Speaking Her Mind on October 21. Her talk is titled: “What shapes the silence around Indigenous women inside the feminist movement.” 

Lee Maracle shares with you the first line of her presentation:

We all know that the condition of Indigenous women is appalling and requires our very loud objections, but alas, the noise-making around Canada’s treatment of us is left to those who are miss-treated.  Why is that?

Join us at Speaking Her Mind, October 20-22 at the University of Calgary, to hear Lee Maracle and many more women of influence. Note that University of Calgary students will be admitted to Speaking Her Mind sessions free of charge (no need for U of C students to register – just come and show your student ID).
