VIDEO PLAYLIST: Gender Justice – Honouring Indigenous Women’s Wisdom
Several of the delegates in the Honouring Indigenous Women’s Wisdom delegation participated in a panel discussion on May 21, 2014. From Canada to Guatemala to the Philippines: Honouring Indigenous Women’s Wisdom was recognized as an official side event at the United Nations. The event took place after delegates had had a chance to share stories and struggles, talk about common strategies and to participate in some of the sessions of the Permanent Forum. The event successfully highlighted key messages from the delegation including the particular impacts of mining on women, the experiences of women in the front lines of the struggle and the gendered impacts of the responses to resistance such as criminalization, stigmatization, abuse, rape and assassination.
