A Toronto-based online intersectional feminist magazine

In this issue

APRIL 21 Is it spring yet? In this week's issue, Ocean (formerly Emilie Ruel) and Akio Maroon give us this sweet, strong reflection, Nomzamo: Becoming Winnie Mandela. In the fourth piece in her Blue in a Red State series, Kelly Livingston lays out some discrepancies between the minimum wage and a livable wage — spoiler: disparities happen on intersectional lines.
