The Incel Movement in Canada: Context & Intervention

Tuesday, April 23, 2024
1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
Online via Zoom

This event takes place on the 6th anniversary of the Toronto van attack on April 23, 2018.

This act of violence committed by a self-declared incel points to the necessity of raising awareness about incel ideology and intervening to prevent incel violence. Incels identify as involuntarily celibate individuals – often men – who are frustrated by their inability to engage with a romantic or sexual partner. Their worldview is grounded in a shared and often violent hatred of women, feminism, and mainstream dating norms.

This webinar situates incels within broader intersections of gender-based violence and ideological extremism. It also explores avenues of future action focused on deradicalization and rehabilitation, as well as policy.
