The Vision & Creativity Of Filling Out A Government Form

The YWCA celebrates the achievements of Saskatoon women at the Women of Distinction Awards on Tuesday, June 5, at TCU Place.

Women 2000 is a community-based group in Saskatoon. Its activism focuses on the hidden dimensions of women’s inequality as evidenced in what appear to be normal institutional policies and practices. In 2000, the group filed a complaint with the Saskatchewan Human Rights Commission alleging discrimination in the women’s elite Huskie hockey program at the University of Saskatchewan. The vision, creativity and initiative these women demonstrated during their seven-year campaign to compel the university to more equitably support women’s hockey is an unprecedented achievement that will benefit a new generation of students and citizens.

The rest.
