MP Celina Caesar-Chavannes was thinking of the TDSB student who was removed from class because of her black hair when she spoke to the House of Commons about body shaming.
It is about women; particularly women of colour, Indigenous women, women with disabilities, and various genders. We need to speak up and understand that vulnerable women have challenges in school, in the workplace, and in society as a whole. So I braided my hair and wrote the speech before returning to Ottawa from Whitby. This is an important conversation to have, and I am glad that the message has been shared throughout Canada and around the world.
