A new social media platform is taking over this town, and her name is Pinterest.
In the past 6 months alone there have been 15 billion pins on Pinterest. The site is responsible for driving more internet traffic to publishers than Twitter, LinkedIn, Reddit, and Google + combined.

Julia Serano spoke about the deeply-rooted assumptions about feminism, as well as femininity and masculinity, that result in transphobia. Concordia's Women's Studies Student Association brought the writer, activist, biologist, and spoken-word performer to Concordia with the intention of reaching out to Concordia's queer community. Serano addressed several issues surrounding transphobia that can be ameliorated with feminist discourse.

Something I can get behind: a man critically evaluating how society views traditional “manhood” and how this limiting perspective is affecting women all over the world.
Tony Porter is a co-founder of A Call to Men, an organization that works to end violence against women by promoting healthier attitudes about masculinity. Porter and his co-founder Ted Bunch have spread the message of A Call to Men everywhere from the NFL to West Point to the U.N., ... Read More
