    About Canadian feminism being alive and kickin’… well, yeah, but it’s still kinda sad that we are stuck at the “attitudes-need-to-change” stage of thing. *sigh*. I would so love feminism to be redundant but of course it isn’t.

    Re: Canadian feminism as alive and kicking…it is sad that we’re stuck in the “attitudes need to change” stage of things, and I think it’s particularly unsettling when you consider the Stephen Harper’s gleeful non-renewal of Ms Jean’s term as G-G. Maybe “alive and kicking” is a bit optimistic? There are certainly some brilliant women working up here for women’s interests and equality, but I worry that the battle is going to be an uphill one. When people like Ms Jean are being sidelined and people like Margaret Wente (http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/opinions/sex-ed-in-a-sex-saturated-culture/article1542372/) are the high profile women adding to public discourse, I think there’s a problem.
