sistersXcanada – Day 21 – Thunder Bay, Ontario

The plan is basically to power through Ontario – the northern route is even longer than the southern route because upper Ontario is wider geographically – and it would probably take us a couple days of non-stop driving. We had no parks planned, only parking lots. We needed to do that in order to justify the hotel room, anyway!

Blog: herstories; or How I Got a TV Show and What That’s Like

I was so nervous! I had a little notepad with questions on it and I read them faithfully, one by one. I was very quiet and awkward.

Video: DIY Deodorant Tutorial + Feminism

My first tutorial! Join me as I make a batch of homemade deodorant – 3 ingredients! Five, if you’re fancy. Very simple and quick (unless you are making a video about it). I also talk about my journey in recovering my natural self, my objections to manmade poison products, and why sticking your fingers in your armpit can save your life.

Video: Resource Extraction

Please watch for an analysis of resource extraction and the impact this has on women and the planet. This is a fundamental factor of patriarchy and male violence, and the discussion of this reveals the strategic and relentless drive of capitalist and male greed against women’s bodies and the planet on which we depend for survival.
