Hello Cool World @ Sexhibition 2011

By Bella Sie On April 28, 2011 | 0 Comments

 

Bella and Michelle came down with a table full of goodies to attend the Opt Sexhibition, a part of the Opt 50th Anniversary Celebration. We chatted with some lovely attendees about our sexual health campaigns, including LACE, Around the Kitchen Table, and I Have Immunity. Then we thought we would make a little video to share with everyone!

PS - We know our video text is backwards but we did that deliberately. Just to be interesting.

HelloCoolWorld talks to Wendy Champagne of

"BAS!" is a film about trafficked women in Mumbai.  Personally, I really liked this film because it gave a unique view into the individual lives of these women.  I particuarly liked how the film doesn't shy away from talking about the things that are wrong with the system of transition as well, such as the fact that many of these women have to be married off at the end.  The film is beautifully shot, and reveals some interesting facets of the lives of these women in transition.

DOXA 2010 Highlights Powerful Women's Stories

By David Ng On May 07, 2010 | 0 Comments

We spoke to Mysha Dewar-McClelland from WAVAW about being a community partner at DOXA this year.  One of the reasons WAVAW supports DOXA is because the film festival showcases stories and messages that aren't necessarily mainstream news, and need to be told.  Here is more of what Mysha had to say:

Celebrate Mother’s Day The Way it Was Meant To Be… With a Little Peace and Justice!

By Sandy Haksi On May 05, 2010 | 0 Comments

This Sunday, May 9 is Mother’s Day and we’re encouraging everyone to Take Back the Day with the peace and justice organization Inter Pares. We helped create the campaign to reclaim the original meaning of Mother’s Day and are big supporters of Inter Pares. They work internationally with grassroots groups and activists, and have a particular focus on empowering women. You can learn more about Inter Pares (Latin for “among equals”) at: www.takebacktheday.ca

Check out this short animated on the real, radical “her-story” of Mother’s Day, a day rooted in social activism and the inspiring stories of its 3 extraordinary founding foremothers.

Women’s March Remembers Lives Lost

By Lizzy Karp On February 18, 2010 | 0 Comments

Hello Cool World joined an estimated 4,000 people who gathered on the afternoon of Sunday, February 14, for the 19 Annual Women’s Memorial March. The yearly gathering serves as a reminder that violence against women is persistent in our neighborhoods, provinces and country. Led by the families of missing women, we gathered at the Carnegie center and slowly walked through Vancouver's Downtown Eastside (or as locals refer to it, the DTES) through to Gastown, watching supporters wave from apartments above.

She joined Hello Cool World as a member of the LACE campaign action team, and luckily for us, decided to stick around.
