Why Is Canada Trying To Protect Its Sex Workers By Hiding Them In Dark Corners?

This week, the Canadian government proposed a raft of changes to the way that its legal system treats the sale of sex. A bill entitled C-36 has now been passed which is designed to shift criminality away from sex workers. The C-36 bill outlines various new restrictions as to where sex workers  in Canada are allowed … Continue reading

Nymphomaniac? It’s Like Nothing You’ve Ever Seen Before

The entire event lasted just under six hours – it included a live introduction from London and a post screening Q&A session – so it was a feature … Continue reading

Boobs, Bans & Battering Rams: Why I’m Going To Be The Change I Want To See In The World

I used to think that feminism was an easy thing. I’m female, I care about the fact that I’m female, therefore I am a feminist. I bleed therefore I am. What could be simpler? I’m now approaching my 22nd year of being an independent, forward thinking ‘bird’ with a brain bigger than one half of … Continue reading
