Back to Work!

I'm back! My wedding and honeymoon are over, and so is my self-imposed hiatus from blogging/activism/doing anything. It is taking me a little while to get back on track, mostly because there is a lot of stuff in my life - work and social - to catch up on and the last few weeks have been a little overwhelming.

So what did I miss? Ha ha, just kidding. Hopefully y'all took part in your local action for October 20th, and we can have a discussion in the upcoming posts about what it means to work towards reproductive justice as opposed to "pro-choice" causes. Intersectionality, friends! I'm going to talk about it!

I also want to mention that a few days before I went back to NB for the wedding, I attended a private screening here in Toronto of Karen Cho's new documentary, "Status Quo?: The Unfinished Business of Feminism in Canada" which I am very excited about (and not just because I'm in it!). It should be hitting the festival circuit soon and then hopefully wider release, so keep an eye out for it, and you can look forward to me talking about it a lot in the near future.

I'm excited to get back to writing! Let's do this!
