rabble.ca is pleased to announce the appointment of Lisa Rundle as its new Editor.

rabble.ca is Canada’s most successful independent Internet magazine with more than one million page-views and 65,000 visitors per month. Combining the hot energy of activism with the cool eye of journalism, rabble is a unique media product.

rabble represents a new kind of journalism that’s interactive and engaged,” says Rundle. “I’m tickled pinko to be the new editor.”

Rundle comes to rabble from editing and writing at This Magazine, Saturday Night and Fireweed: A Feminist Quarterly. Her writing has also appeared in U of T Magazine, The Toronto Star, Herizons and Trade: Queer Things.

“Lisa is a bright young star in journalism and a respected activist in the women’s movement,” said rabble publisher Judy Rebick. “We are just thrilled that she has decided to work with rabble.ca.”

As an activist, Rundle has worked with the Canadian Congress for Learning Opportunities for Women, the Centre for Feminist Research and the University of Toronto Women’s Centre.

Co-editor of the award-winning Turbo Chicks: Talking Young Feminisms (Sumach Press, 2001), she has travelled as far east as London (U.K.) and as far north as Sudbury (Ontario) to speak about third-wave, inclusive feminism. She can also be found with some regularity discussing social justice issues on national television and radio.

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.
