After more than seven years in Women’s Studies at Laurier I have found that both my research and teaching grow more and more concerned with the conditions that put women of all ages, races, classes, sexualities and abilities at risk of violence and poverty. While my original research was on women’s social movements in Latin America, I find myself today gazing more locally to the status of women in Canada. In particular, I question why women continue to experience marginality in paid and unpaid work and why violence continues unabated. Some of my most rewarding teaching experiences have been working with students on events surrounding International Women’s Day Week, or the symposium on sexual violence on university campuses held February 2008.
