 Women’s March / Marche des femmes 2019 – Fredericton

Hosted by Megan Groves and Allie Turner

Saturday, January 19, 2019 at 1 PM – 4 PM
City Hall, 397 Queen Street, Fredericton, New Brunswick
(La Français suit).
We will meet together at City Hall, hear opening remarks and then march in the streets of downtown Fredericton as we seek change in women’s rights!
Join together to Inspire, unite and lead the charge for the advancement of women across Canada and here in Fredericton.

This year’s theme is H.E.R.S., which stands for women’s rights with the priorities of Health, Economic Security, Representation, and Safety:

  • Health — Healthcare is the foundation of women’s well-being and economic stability. Women’s March Canada advocates for access to affordable and inclusive women’s healthcare regardless of nationality, age, race or ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation or disability.
  • Economic Security — Women are powerful drivers of economic growth, and their economic empowerment benefits all nations. Women’s March Canada supports the dismantling of economic barriers that obstruct women’s full and equal access to local, national, and global economic systems.
  • Representation — Women are under-represented globally, adversely affecting our collective health, safety, and economic security. Women’s March Canada seeks fair and just representation of women locally, nationally, and internationally.
  • Safety — Every woman has the need and right to feel physically secure, and security for women should be assured through sound legal practices. Women’s March Canada stands behind the principle that women are not to be held accountable for actions that are outside their control — particularly regarding all forms of assault — and that fair legal action must be applied to prevent these crimes.
After the march, please join us at the Fredericton Public Library for a feminist speaker panel. The panel will begin around 2:00 pm, with refreshments provided. The speakers will be speaking about Health, Economic Security, Representation, and Safety, The speakers will be:
  • Nelly Dennene, E.D. for the Regroupement féministe du NB;
  • Beth Lyons, E.D. for the NB Women’s Council ;
  • Indigo Poirier, Co-Chair of Fredericton Gender Minorities;
  • Johanne Perron, E.D. for the NB Coalition for Pay Equity; and

The moderator is Nadya Ladouceur, Experiential Education Coordinator, Renaissance College

Nous nous rencontrerons à l’hôtel de ville où nous écouterons les mots d’ouverture pour ensuite marcher dans les rues du centre-ville de Fredericton. Communiquons notre désir de voir des changements en lien avec les droits des femmes!
Joignez-vous à nous afin d’inspirer, d’unir et de mener la bataille pour l’avancement de la cause des femmes à travers le Canada et ici-même à Fredericton.
Le thème de cette année touche les droits des femmes au niveau des dossiers importants de la santé, la sécurité économique, la représentation et la sécurité :
Santé – Les soins de santé sont essentiels au bien-être et à la stabilité économique des femmes. La Marche des femmes Canada milite en faveur de l’accès à des soins de santé abordables et inclusifs pour les femmes, sans égard à la nationalité, l’âge, la race ou l’ethnicité, religion, l’orientation sexuelle ou le handicap.
La sécurité économique – Les femmes sont des engins puissants de croissance économique et leur apport bénéficie à toutes les nations. La Marche des femmes Canada exige un accès complet et égalitaire des femmes aux systèmes économiques locaux, nationaux, et globaux.
Représentation – Les femmes sont sous-représentées à l’échelle globale, ce qui nuit à notre santé et sécurité collectives de même qu’à notre sécurité économique. La Marche des femmes Canada souhaite une représentation juste et équitable des femmes à un niveau local, national et international.
Sécurité – Chaque femme a le besoin et le droit de se sentir physiquement en sécurité et la sécurité des femmes doit être assurée par des pratiques légales solides. La Marche des femmes Canada reconnait que les femmes ne doivent pas être tenues responsables d’actions qui sont hors de leur contrôle – surtout quand on traite des différentes formes d’abus – et que des sanctions judiciaires appropriées doivent être prévues afin de prévenir ces crimes.
Après la marche, accompagnez-nous à la Bibliothèque publique de Fredericton pour une table ronde féministe au sujet de la santé des femmes, de leur sécurité économique et personnelle ainsi que de leur représentation. Les discussions commenceront vers 14h. Un léger goûter sera servi. Les panélistes sont:
Nelly Dennene, E.D. directrice générale du Regroupement féministe du NB;
Beth Lyons, E.D. directrice générale du Conseil des femmes du Nouveau-Brunswick ;
Indigo Poirier, co-présidente de Fredericton Gender Minorities;
Johanne Perron, E.D. directrice générale de la Coalition pour l’équité salariale du Nouveau-Brunswick ; and
L’animatrice est Nadya Ladouceur, coordonnatrice de l’éducation expérientielle, Renaissance College

Feminist Lunch Series: Second Wave Feminism and the History of Emotions @ Tilley Hall, UNB, Room 28
Jan 21 @ 12:30 pm – 1:30 pm

Winter 2019 Feminist Lunch Series in the Faculty of Arts to be given on Monday, Jan. 21st at 12:30pm in Tilley 28 (UNB Campus) by Catherine Gidney (STU History).

The talk is titled: “Second Wave Feminism and the History of Emotions”.

From the bombing of Red Hot Video outlets to protests against beauty pageants, from lesbian organizing to Indigenous women’s organizations, feminist activities have involved emotions.  Sometimes women acted out of pain and anger. At other times, they were driven by hope and exhilaration. This talk presents on-going work – an edited collection that uses the lens of emotional history to capture the wide range of excitement and passion that flowed through second-wave feminism and to develop insights that might help us tell new stories about the history of Canadian feminism.

Dr. Gidney writes about youth culture and students in revolt over everything from vending machines to curfews to war. She is the author of Tending the Student Body: Health, Youth and the Rise of the Modern University, 1900-1960 and A Long Eclipse: The Liberal Protestant Establishment and the English-Canadian University Campus, 1920-1970.

Stay tuned for the next Winter 2019 Feminist Lunch Series which will feature remarkable speakers from both UNB and STU.

All are welcome…please bring your lunch!

The Feminist Lunch Series is organized by the UNB Gender & Women’s Studies Program, the UNB/STU University Women’s Centre and the Office of the UNB Dean of Arts. For more information on the series, contact Sophie Lavoie (

Felix van Groeningen
USA, 2018
111 minutes
Principal Cast: Steve Carell, Timothée Chalamet, Maura Tierney, Amy Ryan

Fresh from his breakout role in Call Me By Your Name, Academy Award nominee Timothée Chalamet (Lady Bird) turns in another dazzling performance in Beautiful Boy. Playing a young man raging and suffering through drug addiction, he confirms his status as one of the very best actors of his generation. He is matched every step of the way in this moving drama by Steve Carell (Battle of the Sexes, Little Miss Sunshine), who continues to build on his comic achievements.

David Sheff (Carell) is a kind, loving, middle- class dad. He and his wife, Vicki (Amy Ryan, Louder Than Bombs, Birdman), seem to have done everything right for their family. So when son Nic (Chalamet) gets addicted to methamphetamine, David can’t believe it, can’t stop it, and can’t help but risk everything to try to get his son back. As David grapples with Nic’s lies, betrayals, and constant flirtations with death, the film reminds us of who Nic used to be — a sweet, thoughtful, beautiful boy.

Adapting the bestselling books that David Sheff and Nic Sheff wrote about their experiences, Belgian director Felix van Groeningen brings both realism and poetry to a tragically timely story. As the Sheffs confront the intractable, unpredictable beast of addiction, they must at the same time confront the fact that Nic’s pain might also be his choice. Beautiful Boy doesn’t shy away from the harsh reality of this family’s struggle, but frames it with a surprising amount of life, love, and hope.

Trailer at

Beautiful Boy … is scrupulous and tenderly wounding — a drama that seizes and holds you. It’s a compelling movie whether or not it happens to speak to you personally, yet you can bet that a lot of people who have stood by and watched members of their families succumb to drug addiction are going to want to see it. —Owen Gleiberman, Variety
