In Honour of Patti Szostak
In 2019, when this Award is created, unfair gender-discriminatory practices including discrimination, underestimation, harassment and violence, create obstacles and barriers to women thriving professionally.
The Primeau Law Future of Feminism Award seeks to inspire and reward students of all genders, backgrounds, and scholarship who find creative and thoughtful ways of creating and promoting equality for women.
Primeau Law would like to congratulate our 2019 winner…
At Primeau Law, we work to empower our clients through confident and well-informed staff, progressive and innovative standards, and strong feminist legal representation. When our team read through the submissions, they were all extremely well-thought-out and covered the ultimate goal: finding a creative and thoughtful way to create and promote equality for women, relating directly to our firm’s mission.
Bridget Chiasson’s submission stood out to us for a handful of reasons. Bridget provided the reader with a big picture idea, but then was able to narrow down the problem to a section of her own life, which further proved that the issue Bridget recognized is happening in our own lives as well. Bridget also visually and substantively grouped her ideas into an organized and interesting plan of action. Finally, Bridget provided a methodical “blueprint” for promoting gender inclusion in both a micro and macro environment, which presented us with how we can start to promote a change.
Please take the time to read this article. Bridget has the perspective of a new generation, our future to the new world of feminism, and we are excited to be apart of her journey. Bridget, we wish you the best in school this fall, we are all rooting for you here at Primeau Law!
