Our middle school years can be some of the influential and confusing times in our lives.  If we had the opportunity to go back and speak to our twelve year old selves, what advice would we give? What words of encouragement would we share?

These are the voices of the Antigonish Women's Resource Centre.  Please enjoy this inspiring video.

Community Feedback Meeting 
Hypersexualization Action Plan

Youth in the community of Canso have identified hypersexualization and media pressure as a problem in their lives. 

With the support of the Antigonish Women’s Resource Centre & Sexual Assault Services Association, They have been developing a plan to counter the effects of hypersexualization on young men and women in Canso. 

The hypersexualization of women in the media and culture has becoming a growing concern over the past 10 years.  How is it are these false representations of women and girls affecting our culture and the increase in violence towards women?


These young leaders are seeking feedback, constructive criticism, ideas, support, and help from the community in refining and realizing this action plan. 

Where: Canso Library

When: Wednesday, Sept. 5th from 4:00pm – 6:00pm

Who: Anyone and everyone living in the Canso area is wanted and welcome to attend.
