On June 21, 2014, women and male allies gathered to honour and celebrate Lee Lakeman and her tireless work to end male violence against women. Lee has been an integral part of Vancouver Rape Relief & Women's Shelter since the late '70s. She retired from her position there in 2013 but has not retired from the movement. Lee addressed collectivity; resistance; woman-centered sex; the intersection of race supremacy, class supremacy, and male supremacy; and the past and future of the feminist movement in a talk she gave last year at her retirement celebration. The event, recorded in Vancouver, was called, Resistance is a Woman.

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.
