Does a little hockey fever mean we can't critique the corporate nature of professional sport? How does violence against women relate to our culture of the celebration of male sports? How does this affect female athletes and female fans? The F Word's Ariana Barer, Meghan Murphy, and Ellie Gordon-Moershel discuss a whole slew of these complex issues surrounding professional sport. Included is a clip from a previous interview with acclaimed sport journalist Laura Robinson.

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.
