What is the future of gender in Canadian society?

Join us at Central Library on Monday, April 9, at 7pm to take a 360° look at the way we think about gender as a society — a retrospective on the story thus far, and a speculative reflection about the future. How do global and national trends influence our immediate community? Full details at curiouspublic.com/events/gender/
