Some select images from another screening of the film "It's A Girl," that we presented this past weekend, in Squamish, BC. A small town nestled in between beautiful mountain landscapes. We made the trek out to Quest University on Saturday afteroon, following the film we had a really great discussion forum led by University Instructor Normand Pereault on the issue and solutions. Thank you to everyone that came out.

"We need feminism because..."

Hadiqa Khan (lower left side) is a student at Lahore University of Management Sciences in Pakistan. On International Women's Day this year (couple of weeks ago) she set out a little experiment. With camera in tow she went around her campus asking students, instructors, anyone alike, why they needed feminism. She asked they to write down their reasons on paper and she snapped a pic of each of them.

She faced both positive and negative reactions. "Most of the criticisms we got were because people thought we were trying to "lead people away from Islam" or something along those lines. Most didn't understand feminism itself and thought we were trying to promote "Western" values in exchange for our own. But the positive feedback we got was also very heartening," said Khan
