Requesting $30000

In order to inspire more women and girls to be leaders, to be nation builders, the F5F requires funding for a programme manager and communication materials. By learning about the Famous 5, Canada’s democratic champions, Canadians understand that it is possible to improve the lives of women and girls in Canada leading to improvements in the lives of men and boys, too. Our monthly Virtual Pink Teas feature trail blazers who have overcome significant difficulties or those who are leading an idea such as free long-acting birth control for all women under the age of 25. Over the past two years, groups of women numbering 250 to 1000 have attended these VPTs and we want to grow the attendance, participation, dreams and goals of women and girls. By using an inclusive, intersectional and inter-generational feminist perspective, women and girls are empowered to recognize the leader within them and in others. As well, we are preparing for the 95th Anniversary of the ‘Persons’ Case (Oct. 18, 2024) which re-defined the word ‘persons’ as always meaning women and men and enabled Canadian women to be appointed to the Senate of Canada..
