The F Word's Carissa Ropponen speaks with Toronto artist Alana Boltwood about her art exhibit at Simon Fraser University's international conference Intersectionality Research, Policy and Practice: Influences, Interrogations and Innovations. Boltwood explores intersectionality through the creation of artworks about geometry, mathematics, electronics and feminism.
The F word also airs a talk by Sharon Smith given at the Socialism 2013 Conference in Chicago, Illinois. Smith speaks about Black Feminism and Intersectionality. She argues that the concept of intersectionality is vital to socialist and feminist thought and practice.
The F Word seeks to facilitate feminist dialogue and use media as a foundation for positive social change. For more information on The F Word, please visit our website at: www.feminisms.org or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
