PODCAST: Status Quo: The unfinished business of feminism in Canada

In this episode, I speak with Ravida Din, producer of a new documentary: “Status Quo: The unfinished business of feminism in Canada“. The film looks at both the history of the women’s movement in Canada as well as some of the key issues we are dealing with today: child care, the live-in caregiver program, the status of First Nations women in Canada, violence against women, abortion rights and more.

The film will be available to watch for free on the National Film Board of Canada’s website beginning on International Women’s Day, March 8th, until March 10th.
