With a feminist prime minister, can feminist policy be far behind?

With the House of Commons back in session, the three-month-old Trudeau government gets to demonstrate its priorities. So far the government has been a study in ambiguities.

Speaking in Davos, the prime minister made himself clear on one important point: he is a feminist. You can watch him say it in the top video of the 2016 World Economic Forum.

In a panel discussion on pay equity, he underlined how feminism was not just something for women. Men and boys should not be afraid to say they were feminists, said Justin Trudeau.

Dear Daddy, I'm going to be called a whore

Today, I watched a bunch of middle schoolers on a field trip reduced a girl to tears because of words said in a language that I did not understand.  It brought me back to this video, this amazing piece by a Norwegian charity organization called CARE.  CARE campaigns for women’s rights and has recently released a short film drawing attention to how male culture today has the potential to promote violence or abuse against women.
