The F Word speaks with three women from Women Against Violence Against Women (WAVAW) Rape Crisis Centre about their review of David Cronenberg's highly acclaimed new film, A Dangerous Method. What messages is the film sending to women and men about sexuality? How are masochism, repressed sexuality, rape myths, oppression, and movies interconnected? These outspoken feminists share their knowledge about women's experiences and their ideas around what Cronenberg could have done if he'd wanted to create a truly groundbreaking film. Too often we imagine films to exist in a world separate from ours. This conversation draws connections between the big screen and our everyday lives.

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.
