Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls: An Introduction to Genocide

This narrative of Canada is manufactured for good reason, no sovereign nation would willingly admit to ongoing genocide against Indigenous Peoples, including First Nations, Inuit and Métis, which especially targets women, girls, and 2SLGBTQQIA people. Without genuine and persistent accountability by provincial and federal governments, there will be no justice for Indigenous peoples.

Harassment Against Racialized, Muslim Women

Provincial, municipal, and federal governments have failed to advocate against gender-based violence against religious and ethnic minorities. Missing from national media and feminist organizations are efforts to bring awareness and support to violence against women, including intersections of racial and religious conflict. These intersectional lenses, unfortunately, are not appealing to Albertans and Canadians experiencing post 9/11 impacts. Canada’s no-fly list disrupted and traumatized Arabs across Canada and reflected the country’s intense political will to enforce institutional racism blatantly.

Women and the Monstrous Menstruation Cycle

Isolation is a significant outcome of period misinformation and lack of resources. Rather than going to work, school, or community and social events, women are forced to isolate themselves due to a lack of menstrual products or knowledge of managing menstruation. In addition, community initiatives and organizations pursuing equality in products provided to women often fall short of concrete policy.

Panel with Business Leaders in Edmonton, Calgary and Ontario

Every month, for LCCMedia, Mary Thomas hosts a panel around issues going on in the community. Business Leaders were joined in an indepth conversation about doing business during and after the pandemic in the August Panel. Even though each business is different and unique, every business left the pandemic either better or worse.  

This panel discussion was very robust because the business leaders came to it from very different but relevant perspectives. The panelists were Deborah Cox, the CEO of Microbusiness, Yinka Oladele, the first black owner of a UPS store in Calgary and Sharon Njobo, the CEO of thefirestarter.ca.

Nominate a Woman a Day with Katie Stanners | Top 100 Women in Canada

I think there is a lot of negativity out there in social media land. Feels like a lot of people competing with each other and I wanted to be apart of the woman a day project because I wanted to spread positivity and inspire others. Creating a network and community of inspirational women doing great things in our community. A place where we can celebrate our victories together, champion each other and lift each other up. A network of amazing women that supports each other. Women supporting women is a beautiful thing. I also am a huge believer in supporting local businesses so it’s a great way to showcase some female run companies/businesses in our area.

Edmonton’s Top Immigrant Writer Yaa Serwaa Somuah talks to LCCMedia

My desire for writing started when I was a teenager growing up in a small village in the  eastern part of Ghana. At the time there was only one primary and Middle school in the  village owned by the Catholic mission. The very first piece I wrote was a poem titled Mama. I was inspired to write that poem when my mom insulted my best friend Kofi, accusing him  of having sexual affair with me which was not true. Since then, I have written many more  poems, drama, inspirational and children’s stories. I must say that growing up as an African  child with a strong background in oral tradition, I tell more stories than those that have  found themselves on prints and online platforms.
