    We’re delighted to report that Linda MacDonald and Jeanne Sarson are being recognized by the Women’s Peacepower Foundation Inc. for their work on non-State torture (NST) and Human Trafficking.  The Women of Peace Award is given to “ordinary/extraordinary women around the world who work without funding or recognition for the universal goal of peace, fairness and true justice within the lives of women and their families. . . .  [It is given] to women and girls involved in grassroots projects . . . that fall into two broad categories: violence against women and waging peace.” 

    Linda and Jeanne’s nomination was submitted by Women Graduates-USA (WG-USA) and supported by CFUW National. They will travel to Florida in early November to receive their award. CFUW Kanata congratulates these two determined women for their persistent efforts to promote the human rights of women and girls, and to have Canada acknowledge and name that they have suffered and survived NST victimization.

    Linda and Jeanne were the inspirational keynote speakers at CFUW’s Ontario East Fall Gathering in Kanata, in October 2016.
