Hi, I am Jenn.
I have admired the Women’s Centre’s work from afar before ever becoming a part of the centre. I admire the Women’s Centre’s values on reciprocity, peer support and de-colonization. I feel honoured to have the opportunity to be invited into women’s lives. I have been involved in activism since discovering feminist, punk-rock as a teenager. I believe, much like the Women’s Centre, community is everything. These beliefs and values are what brought me to the Women’s Centre.
My personal definition of feminism is a woman feeling free to live authentically according to nobody’s standards but their own. At the Women’s Centre, I hope to learn how to honour the experiences of each individual woman I encounter.
A woman who guides my feminist work is Dr. Kimberle Crenshaw who theorized that existing intersections of a woman’s identity may lead to different and diverse oppressions.
