Ellie interviews returning guest and acclaimed sport journalist Laura Robinson. Robinson recently wrote an article in the Toronto Star that commented on the abysmal track record of the International Olympic Committee and now the Pan American Sports Organization (to be held in Toronto in 2015) in regards to their consistent obstruction of women’s equal access in international sporting events. Laura Robinson is part of a new group called FairPlay 2015, which is determined to fight for gender equality in the upcoming Pan Am Games in Canada.

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. But 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 only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.
If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.
We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing.
