    At the request of national advocacy and Ontario Council, CFUW Nepean is having Kelly Favro speak again on the sexual assault and publication ban issue, May 17, 2023 at 7 pm EDT. Legislation was tabled in the Senate last week to promote an informed choice for women on this matter.  Since 40 out of 100 women report experiencing sexual assault at some level at least once, this is an important issue for women. The incidence is increasing OR women are now choosing to report it more.

    Registering in advance for this meeting is necessary:

    After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.

    Burlington’s own Chandler Levack, who spoke to our group in the Fall, has received great reviews and praise for her directorial debut and writing skills for her film “ I Like Movies”.  It is now playing in select theatres, including the Burlington Cineplex on Brant St. “Levack has done a remarkable job…If you are looking for a smart, nostalgic throwback to the kinds of films that marked the late nineties and …heyday of high school movies, then I Like Movies deserves more than a rental-see this in theatres, if you can” ( Globe and Mail, Friday March 10)
