"Penis points" is a phrase I never would have encountered if it weren't for my interview with choreographer Lisa Sandlos, whose latest work explores how girls are socially constructed.

Sandlos is creating a production using research with young dancers for her PhD dissertation in Gender, Feminist and Women's Studies at York University. She told me it's a common phrase in the competitive dance studio world.

Review: Power grab: Examining gender dynamics through prose and allegory

How To Get Along With Women

by Elisabeth de Mariaffi
(Invisible Publishing,
2012;
$16.95)

The 11 stories in Elisabeth de Mariaffi's debut story collection, How to Get Along With Women, take place in locales as diverse as Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, and Marseille, France. The stories are intimately linked to their particular settings; in each, de Mariaffi explores how the characters' actions are shaped by their geographical, historical or political place in the world.

Ontario Nurses Association study on macroeconomic side effects of austerity

Change the conversation, support rabble.ca today.

The Ontario Nurses Association has been publishing some awesome economic analysis over the last couple of years, highlighting the talents of their new economist and PEF member Salimah Valiani. Apart from a strong analytical and quantitative approach, ONA's recent research has been very refreshing in the emphasis it has placed on gender analysis and the unique features of caring labour.
