Mandalena Lewis Dec 2018$30.00

The Status of Women and Human Rights committee is thrilled to present an evening of learning and discussion on a thought-provoking topic with a dynamic speaker.  Ms. Lewis thrilled the audience at the recent Women Working Together event, and has been meeting with a group of members who are considering how we might support her.  

A former flight attendant turned fierce Feminist activist Mandalena Lewis is setting a precedent for women’s rights in the workplace. Since speaking up publicly 3 years ago about being sexually assaulted by a pilot, Mandalena has founded an online movement and brought forward a class action lawsuit against WestJet airlines for breach of contract for failing to protect their female flight crew – a first of its kind
