This one goes out to the ladies this week.
It's International Women's Day this Sunday March 8, so let's celebrate some of the amazing work women are doing to help improve lives of other ladies and people in this world.
And there is also the requisite cat link too.
Happy International Women's Day and Happy Feel Good Friday
- We're going to start off by playing this video in the background to set the mood
If you haven't seen the video of a weasel riding on a woodpecker's back, go watch it now, and then come back.
Canada's 'Tampon Tax'? It's really cramping everyone's style and these two women are over it. Period. #notaxontampons
Lovely video from the Indigenous Environmental Network. Lakota youth speak out against Keystone XL.
I'm going to switch it up here and talk about dogs, puppies even, to mention this cafe let's you play with puppies and drink coffee.
"Feminism means everything to us." The women behind The Mahoyo Project beyond amazing.
Engaging young women in new media to create safer spaces and encourage them to become leaders? Yes please!
Terrence Howard giving a play-by-play of his disastrous Oscars flub is hilarious. Who wouldn't be flustered when they saw Oprah?
Don't let your tiny joke of a kitchen stop you from making delicious meals.
Watching Lindy West taste test celebrity liquor is one of the best things ever.
- Uh, huge LOL @ The Straight's #toosoon headline about the Port fire in Vancouver.
- "we're going to start a girl gang to put a stop to boys being mean to us." Take over the world young ladies. Take it over.
- GTFO is a documentary focusing on women gamers and how they challenge the status quo (and put up with a lot of shit).
- Did anyone else hear about Canada's first public parkour park and only this about this office moment?
- Kittens! Lots and lots of kittens!

Thank you for reading this story…
More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.
rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.
So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.
And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
