Women Make Waves

October 16, 2006

Participants of
this weekend’s Atlantic Waves Conference at Saint Mary’s University joined
together for a special photo-op in Huskies Stadium.

On Saturday morning, they took to centre field and formed the official
Woman’s Symbol (as shown on right).

Atlantic Waves, a student-led conference aimed at connecting community and
academic feminists, while furthering women's equality in Atlantic Canada,
took place October 13-15, at Saint Mary's University.

The conference focused on women's challenges and projects in the Atlantic
provinces, and how they intersect with or differ from the experiences of
their feminist allies in this region and across Canada.

In giving voice to, and listening to the experiences of those who are
engaged in the grassroots and academic feminist communities, the conference
provided the opportunity to make connections, establish partnerships,
integrate, and ultimately strengthen the Atlantic feminist networks.

Saint Mary's University is known for its community outreach projects, both
in Canada and around the world. Saint Mary's, founded in 1802, is home to
one of Canada's leading business schools, a Science Faculty widely known for
its cutting-edge research, a comprehensive and innovative Arts Faculty and a
