Prince Edward Island and Southeast New Brunswick
Feminism and Gender Equality in Acadie

The Women’s Summit has been an important part of the Congrès mondial acadien since the beginning. The Regroupement féministe du Nouveau Brunswick (RFNB), in collaboration with Actions Femmes Î.-P.-É., among others, will organize the sixth edition of this event, which will be held on August 11 and 12, 2019 in Prince Edward Island. Under the theme L’Acadie (re) pensée: le féminisme et l’égalité des genres en Acadie [Acadie revisited: feminism and gender equality in Acadie], the Women’s Summit will provide an excellent opportunity for women and men, young and old, as well as other engaged parties to sit down together and exchange ideas. In 2019, come and help us reflect on crucial issues during this event, which promises to be participatory, dynamic, and inclusive.
