I was born in the mid fifties to a mother who had high career aspirations, worked full time and believed to her very core that women should be treated equally and respectfully in all aspects of life.
She strongly supported the Women’s Rights/ Liberation Movement in the 60’s and 70’s and made sure that I understood its importance, relevance and effects.
Back then many women watched in silence afraid to speak up.
My mother was not one of them and neither am I.
Her influence empowered me to be brave, and to always advocate for equality, fairness and personal safety.
My career in banking brought forth the reality of inequalities most women face financially, in the home and in their workplace.

From a young age, I knew I had an adventurous, curious nature. As I got older, I started to fall into what could be described as traditional rolls and expectations. I went from daughter, sister & friend to wife and mother. I have the house, the car, the 2 kids, a couple cats and a dog. I have a supportive family and husband. I forged a career I was passionate about but through the years, I have questioned what my role is in life while I incorporate these titles. Sometimes, those labels have felt like cages. It has begged the question, what happened to me and my dreams? What is my purpose? How do I continue to grow personally and professionally in a world that idealizes busy and pits mothers against mothers? Where judgment and criticism towards fellow women is commonplace? My curious nature has brought forth these questions and a quest to embrace my more traditional role while breaking familial cycles, growing my community and empowering my daughter’s generation to seek the fulfillment they deserve rather than what is expected of them.

I was raised in Winnipeg, Mb in the 1980’s/1990’s. I had two working parents who both shared in the daily living tasks, such as childcare, cooking, cleaning, yard work etc. Both parents actively participated in our extracurricular activities and our upbringing. I grew up thinking that this was normal household behavior, but later came to realize that this type of equality was actually not the norm. It is still very common today, in 2021, to have very distinct gender roles. Why does one partner continue to take on more of the household responsibilities, like the planning, organizing, appointment making, cleaning, cooking, child raising, etc.? Why is it not more common for two people to live side by side to one another, sharing in all daily living tasks, while working independently and yet cohabitating with togetherness?
My purpose in participating, is to help educate myself and others that all people are equal, no matter their gender or their household. Future generations rely on us to grow and learn.
My name is Leah and I descend from a long line of strong, proud Metiś women. I am the mother of 4 and the grandmother of 12, 8 of which are girls. As the matriarch of my family I feel that it is my responsibility to do everything I can to ensure my daughters and my granddaughters have the same opportunities and benefits as my sons and grandsons.
I am also very passionate about racial prejudice. As a Metiś community member I have had first hand experience with prejudice. I have also worked with many First Nations communities and heard first hand stories of the atrocities these people have experienced.
I have been blessed to be able to travel extensively and know that firsthand that people are the same worldwide no matter the colour of their skin.
