#7 - An interview with Karen Craggs-Milne, founder of Conscious Equality
Pardon the strange start to this video; somehow the very start of the interview was cut off. it was unfortunate, but all that was missed was how Karen got to Canada and where she went to school. The really good stuff is still in there!
Karen was at first a seemingly intimidating interview. She's unbelievably accomplished; has a background and experience set that makes us pale in comparison; and speaks incredibly well.
But the interview was amazing to be a part of. She's so insightful on the issues of gender equality. I'm super excited for you to listen/watch this interview. There's tons of amazing stuff in there !
Also please take a moment to check out Karen’s links below. She invites you to say hello and engage with her.

FEM Apparel was started by the father and step-mother of two girls. Concerned with societal pressures and inequalities, FEM Apparel was created with the idea of showcasing thought-provoking phrases to encourage discussion, highlight disparity and challenge the status quo to be inclusive and equal.
We currently support two different charities. For purchases made in Canada we donate to the Canadian Women’s Foundation. They are an organization that provides programming and support for four urgent issues: gender-based violence, economic security, girl’s empowerment and inclusive leadership. The foundations programs are created by women for women and tailored to the specific communities in which they are engaged.
For purchases made from anywhere else in the world we donate to UN Women. A branch of the United Nations, UN Women is a truly global platform that works with UN Member States to help them set, and achieve their goals for gender equality. They work with governments and civil society to design laws, policies, programmes and services needed to ensure that the standards are effectively implemented and truly benefit women and girls worldwide.
