Gender equality remains a work in progress in many professions. In this F Word May Day Special, Helen Polychronakos brings you two interviews from very different fields. Poet and carpenter Kate Braid talks about her memoir, Journeywoman: Swinging a Hammer in a Man's World. Often the only woman on worksites, Kate was also the first woman in the Vancouver local of the Carpenters' Union. Listen to Kate's thoughts on women in the trades, then and now. Photo-based artist SD Holman's latest exhibition, Butch: Not Like the Other Girls, was on display at The Cultch in East Vancouver until April 25th. Holman discusses sexism in the art world, feminist guerrilla art, and queer identities.

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 in 2017.
