Last February, Fanny and I (from the Hypersexualization project) applied to obtain one of the five Speaking Rights bursaries offered by Equitas. We are very happy and proud to announce that our project has been chosen and that we have received a $500 grant!

With the group of girls who regularly participate in our activities, we will use that money to build a project that will be created and implemented by the girls. This project will also contribute to promote human rights, such as equality, by providing a safe space for girls to talk about different matters that are important to them, like body image, street harassment and their feelings of safety in the neighbourhood.

We are very excited about this project! We will keep you posted on the outcome of this new adventure!

 

* We would like to thank theses organizations and institutions for their contribution to this grant: Equitas, City of Montreal, Ministère de l’immigration, de la diversité et de l’inclusion, Foundation of Greater Montreal, and Royal Bank of Canada Foundation.
