  • Twelve Aboriginal girls at Winnipeg’s Maples Collegiate Institute participated in a four-day storytelling and photojournalism workshop, Silent No More; all twelve students were given cameras to share their perspectives in a city (and country) where violence against Indigenous women and girls occurs at an alarming rate. Read their stories here.
  • “We need to get to the roots of violence against Indigenous women and girls….We need to centre the voices of those who are most vulnerable and experience the highest rates of violence” A two-part roundtable on gendered colonial violence.
  • “I came into the topless bar that you were bouncing.” Listen to all ten of these StoryCorps real-life love stories.
  • “As long as the marginalized communities I’m writing about don’t think I’m full of shit, that’s success to me.” Don’t miss this Longform podcast with Molly Crabapple.
  • In the polarized vaccination debate, essayist Eula Bliss offers refreshing and critical insight into the limitations of prioritizing the “natural” while parenting and the possibilities of immunization. Read this profile on Mutha Magazine and then try to get your hands on Bliss’s brilliant literary essay, “Vampires and Vaccines.” 
  • Boyhood star Patricia Arquette talks about feminism and aging as she reflects on how things have changed (and not changed) for women in Hollywood since she started acting.
