Joyce Arthur is a founding member of FIRST, a national feminist sex worker advocacy organization based in Vancouver that lobbies for the decriminalization of prostitution in Canada. Joyce works as a technical writer and pro-choice activist, and is the founder and Executive Director of the Abortion Rights Coalition of Canada, a national pro-choice group in Canada.
Joyce will be speaking on the threat to reproductive rights, including abortion, contraception, and other reproductive healthcare presented by the election of US President Trump and the even worse on these issues (if that is possible) Vice President Pence whose legislative record in Indiana is a grim foreshadowing of the threatened reversal of decades of progress on women's rights. She will also address the threat of the global wave of right-wing populism to women in Canada and the rest of the world.
