8th International Women’s Day Luncheon
Technology for Change Foundation was proud to support Bridges for Women Society at their 8th International Women’s Day Luncheon, keynote speakers: Tracy Porteous, executive director of Ending Violence BC, and JR LaRose, former BC Lions and Be More Than A Bystander spokesman to talk about ending violence against women, toxic masculinity and male allies.
Violence against women affects us all, however, it has long been labeled a ‘woman’s issue’. Since the vast majority of perpetrators of relationship and sexual violence against women are males, the problem is equally a ‘men’s issue’. Sports icons are using their status and public profile to raise awareness about social issues, and we are proud to see the BC Lions engage on the issue of violence against women.
