Nov 19, 2019 - Women's Words, Women's Work

When: Tuesday November 19th, 5:30pm
Where: Burdock, 1184 Bloor St W.

Women's work is unique because it is not always clearly defined. There tends to be more emphasis on paid labour, rather than the invisible work associated with housework, parenting and caregiving. Many women are working a double day. This is not always valued or recognized.

This issue of Sister Writes pays attention to women's experiences of work.

Where: HNES 142, Faculty of Environmental Studies, York University

Justin Podur is Associate Professor in the Faculty of Environmental Studies (FES). In his new thriller novel, Siegebreakers, a group of heroes from Palestine, Israel, and the US team up to break the siege on Gaza. As a political work of fiction, the book is a chance to think about whether art can challenge the way we think or feel about a political status quo. FES has gathered an interdisciplinary panel to talk about this intersection of art and politics, fact and fiction, peace and conflict.

Nov 18, 2019 - Flu Fighter Outreach Blitz for Paid Sick Days

When: Monday, November 18th, 12noon
Where: South-west corner of University Ave and College

As Health Minister Christine Elliott kicks off this year's flu shot campaign amid hospital overcrowding and predictions of a severe flu season, we want her to know that fair labour law is an essential part of keeping Ontarians healthy. Last year, Elliott's government took away paid sick days and brought back sick note requirements. That means we can expect a more severe flu season and increased strains on our emergency health care system.

The flu shot is an important step, but it isn't enough. This flu season, we know that in order to stay healthy, we need the Ontario government to bring back our paid sick days and scrap sick note requirements. If you agree, join us to spread the word and grow the movement.
