Carmen Paquette (1946- )

Description

Carmen is a Franco-Ontarien feminist, who, for almost three decades, has purposefully bridged different social movements in Canada and internationally. She states: "I have always strongly believed that all oppressions are linked and that therefore those fighting for social justice need to be aware of and support other struggles". (Carmen Paquette, Ottawa, 2000 Induction Statement)

Féministe franco-ontarienne, militante dans les dossiers de la pauvreté, première membre ouvertement gaie de la Commission canadienne des droits de la personne, présidente d'Égale en 1996.
