Our beloved Thea Lim over here at Shameless has not yet departed to the United States and will grace us once more before she goes with her intelligence, brilliance, and general feminist awesomeness this Sunday at the Toronto Rape Crisis Centre/Multicultural Women Against Rape for their monthly Feminist Activist Herstory Forum!
If I weren’t in the US myself, I’d be there! So I hope you can be!
Here are the deets:
Date: Sunday, January 4th
