Text by Roohi Sahajpal Photos by Samantha L. Anderson A visual look at the White Ribbon conference that came to Ryerson last week. It was a discussion-focused conference looking at a spectrum of identities, experiences and realities that determine ‘What Makes a Man’

“Honestly, men don’t think about this. If girls didn’t talk about this all the time, we wouldn’t care.”

An impromptu debate about gender equality in my history lecture prompted a male classmate to say, what I’m sure he thought was kindly, that we should all just shut up.

The Ryerson Students’ Union (RSU), The Muslim Students Association (MSA), and the Women’s Centre present:
Get Out of my Closet!

Join the RSU, MSA and the Women’s Centre for lunch and learn about Quebec’s Bill 94 and what it means for your civil rights. Bill 94 is proposed legislation, and if approved would deny essential government services, public employment, education, and health care to Muslim women who wear the niqab (face veil).
