There are just seven more sleeps until my coffee table book about women in support of Joanne K. Rowling and women becomes available! Fifty percent of my profits will be donated to the Vancouver Rape Relief and Women’s Shelter. It is Canada’s longest standing rape crisis centre, and it lost its city funding earlier this year due to its woman-only policy.
As I mentioned here the other day I have been discovering many wonderful women working hard for women and girls. Today I would like to present Giselle Portenier. She is an award-winning Canadian journalist and filmmaker who is dedicated to the rights of women and children. Her latest documentary, In the Name of Your Daughter (2018), focuses on FGM and child marriage. You can find her on Twitter: @GisellePortenie and her website: giselleportenier.com.
Thank you for reading!
