[The Star] That will change next week when Edmonton holds the First World Conference of Women’s Shelters. More than 800 delegates from 51 countries – Afghanistan, Rwanda, Kenya, Nigeria, Serbia, Nepal and Zambia to name a few – are coming to the Sept. 8-to-11 meeting. They’ll talk about everything from the trafficking of pre-teen girls to the challenges of elder abuse. A full day of the conference will be devoted to the question: What can men do?
Anyone who is surprised Alberta would host such a gathering hasn’t met its organizer, Jan Reimer.
Yeah. We’re Floored That Alberta’s Hosting A Human Rights Meeting. Seriously.
