Hot Pink Paper Campaign Aims to Make Cities Work for Women and Girls
Hot Pink Paper Launch at Vancouver City Hall
When considering who represents the marginalized in cities, we are arguably more likely to think of senior citizens, people with disabilities - even cyclists - before women and girls.
In preparation for November’s civic election, an organization called Women Transforming Cities is raising awareness of issues for women and girls living in cities - and dressing them up in the most feminine of colours - with its Hot Pink Paper Campaign.
"Women and girls are angry that they work for cities but cities aren’t working for women and girls. Key issues include alienation of young women, lack of electoral representation, and the need for adequately paying jobs," says Co-Chair of Women Transforming Cities and former Vancouver City Councillor Ellen Woodsworth.
