Article Information

Background International Women's Week
Reason In celebration of The Feminist Games, an annual event for International Women's Day, which the Ottawa Citizen covered.

Hollaback! Ottawa was one of the recipients of a Femmy Award, so I was interviewed in my role as director.
Comment It's a bit disjointed and some of my quotes appear without the proper context, but it's still great positive exposure of our work.
Outcome The Citizen had to publish a photo of me in my 'Hot Pussy is No Way to Say Hi!' t-shirt. WIN.
