“My time volunteering with WomanACT taught me so much about the transformative power of community oriented research and pro-women activism in Toronto. As a student of Gender, Sexuality, Feminist, and Social Justice studies at McGill University, the team at WomanACT showed me how research can be turned into action and how approaching the world from a feminist and social justice charge continues to produce meaningful work and change.”
“Volunteering with the Tech for Women’s Justice project has helped me develop an appreciation for both qualitative research and survivors’ stories. With the help and guidance of staff members, it was here that I learned about the nitty-gritty of community-based research and why it should be equally as represented among other conventional research methods. As a feminist and lifelong storyteller, I find power in survivor narratives, stories, and finding intersections between access to justice and technology. “
“As a certifying birth doula and a passionate advocate for reproductive rights I wanted to get more involved in gender focused non-profits in Toronto. My role as a volunteer researcher with WomanAct has helped broaden my network in Toronto and reaffirmed my love for research and commitment to gender equity and rights.”
