Here are some feminist-friendly events to hit up in the next few weeks:
The Ryerson Women’s Centre and McClung’s, Ryerson’s feminist magazine, are hosting a screening of the doc I Was A Teenage Feminist on Monday, Sept. 11 at 6:30p.m. According to the press release, “Join filmmaker Therese Shechter as she takes a funny, moving and very personal journey into the heart of modern Feminism. Armed with a video camera and an irreverent sense of humor, Therese talks with Feminist superstars, rowdy frat boys, liberated Cosmo girls and Radical Cheerleaders, all in her quest to find out whether Feminism can still be a source of personal and political power.” Shechter will be on hand after the film for a Q&A. Tickets are $5 at the door (Thomas Lounge at Oakham House, Ryerson University, 63 Gould Street, Toronto). Thanks to Shameless scribe Angela Kozak for the tip!
The lovely ladies of Ladyfest Ottawa present Chicks and Giggles, featuring Rebecca Kohler (Toronto), Kamal Pandya, Wendi Reed and Carrie Gaetz, hosted by China Doll (Friday, Sept. 15, Shanghai Restaurant, 651 Somerset St. W., Ottawa, 9pm/$5). You are promised by the ladies to “laugh so hard you’ll split your panties!” Ladyfest Ottawa is happening Sept. 27th to Oct. 1st and Oct. 3rd — the festival lineup will be announced next week.
