A Gift For Women Activists on IWD 2007

F-email Fightback has created this "gift" for sisters engaged in the fightback for women's equality and social justice.

This backpack is credited to Cynthia Patterson - an extraordinary woman - who presented this metaphorical backpack to CUPW women at a women's conference held in Quebec in 2005. She spoke about women's organizing, in particular, the organizing of RSMC workers (forbidden by law to organize) into the CUPW family.

She taught me the strategy of identity, the strategy of perseverance and the importance of acting "as if"!

Happy IWD 2007

In sisterhood and solidarity
