In this part 5, feminist activist Pat Noonan and the group, Women In Black discuss their weekly group gatherings and how since 1988, the group has gathered in rain, snow or sunshine near the Ambassador Bridge in Windsor, Ontario (near the U.S. / Canadian border) to protest against war. The group began in response to the Palestinian / Israeli occupation in 1988 and still kept going through the Iraq war and today - Women In Black has never missed one week. Though they have faced threats and verbal harassment from men, the group finds the courage to keep on going and engaging the community in dialog.
