PCUH Policy Forum Series: Dr. Oksana Kis on Feminism in Contemporary Ukraine

The PCUH Policy Forum Series was created for the express purpose of inviting recognized authorities in the field to speak on issues that bear on the welfare, security and interests of Ukraine and Ukrainian-Canadians. The forum provides, within an informal setting, an opportunity to discuss and exchange ideas on current issues that have policy relevance and implications.
