RebELLEs: Notre Révolution Féministe, Our Revolution is Now

2nd RebELLEs Gathering!

The time has come for …
the 2nd RebELLEs Pan-Canadian
Young Feminist Gathering!

May 20-23, 2011, Winnipeg Manitoba

We invite you to be part of the
RebELLEs feminist movement!


This is an invitation to all young women, between 14 and 35 years of age with diverse political views and identities, from all regions, cultures and languages, with an interest in feminist issues and struggles.

You are invited to participate in the
2nd Pan-Canadian Young Feminist Gathering

The 1st gathering, “Toujours RebELLEs, Waves of Resistance” hosted over 500 young feminists in Montréal in October of 2008. For three days, young feminists gathered to share experiences, stories and analysis. We engaged in creative resistance actions in the streets, learned from and with one another, shared our feminist talents, and danced up a storm. We returned to our regions with a strong foundation for a young feminist movement in place, one that RebELLEs all across the country have been building upon for the past two years.

This is a call to all young women, activists, students, workers, un(der)employed women, artists, researchers, mothers, feminists of all tendencies and of all types, and of course emerging feminists, to get involved!
