Intersectionality 101

As Neo learned, it’s all too easy to take reality for granted. Makes for good Hollywood, sure, but what if all around us — embedded in way we use language, traditions, and organizations — is a world that is more than it might first appear on the surface? Rowa joins us to tell the story of what motivated her to take on the status quo in our current version reality. It is a story about discovering how racism is manifested in society and structured in the institutions all around us.

Rowa Mohamed recently graduated with a degree in health sciences from Western University. She is highly invested in many social justice and anti-racism efforts in the city — a community provocateur with a passion for equality.
