Guest Contributor, Toronto

As a child, Lynne was influenced by the emphasis on political activism, which was ingrained in an Eastern European working-class tradition. Her training in art, gender studies and psychology has perfectly aligned over the years to inform her primary political outlet, which is education and advocacy in the field of gender-based violence. Food, wine, travel, art and the unexpected, counterbalance some fairly intense human rights work. While at the same time, she can’t help that ever resonating mind from deconstructing what is often left unexamined even if it is a taken for granted early morning cup of java on route to work.
