On September 15, 2017 Solidarity Winnipeg brought in Kate Doyle Griffiths, a longtime feminist organizer who is actively involved with the International Women's Strike and the Red Bloom collective in New York City, to Winnipeg.
Check out the video of her talk about the fight against the oppression of all women (cis and trans), trans men and non binary people today and how this is connected to capitalism and other forms of oppression.
