February 5th

Standard

Today on the show, our amazing new volunteer Sarah brings us an interview with Elizabeth May, leader of the Green Party of Canada. They talked about Copenhagen, how climate change effects women and the need for proportional representation in Canada. You can also check out Terra Informa for more with Elizabeth May.

Laura brings us part of the panel presentation given by the Women’s Court of Canada at U of A last March. Gwen Brodsky, co-director of the Poverty and Human Rights Centre in Vancouver, spoke on the importance in understanding the difference between strict equality and substantive equality.

There were some technical difficulties last week, so this week you finally get to hear an interview from a Vancouver based radio show called Red Eye with Jane Kirby about convergence activism and the 2010 Olympics from Red Eye.

The Legislating Sexualities in Alberta panel held today at the U of A was fantastic. Gaywire recorded it and we’ll soon have a link up.

Have a great weekend and get your feminism on!
