VIVEK SHRAYA ……………………………………………. 14
Transforming Transphobia
Vivek Shraya, who came out as trans in 2016, said that
her Hindu community helped nurture her gender nonconformity
in the 1980s. However, her journey has not
been an easy one. Shraya received hate mail, including
death threats in 2017, and responded by creating a comic
book called Death Threat with visual artist Ness Lee.

LIBBY DAVIES ……………………………………………… 18
From the Grassroots to the Commons
Libby Davies, Canada’s first out-lesbian MP, was, for
six terms, a passionate advocate for the underprivileged,
including those she served as MP for Vancouver East,
a constituency that includes Vancouver’s Downtown
Eastside. Her new memoir, Outside In, is a fascinating
telling of her time in office.

ANDREA DWORKIN ……………………………………… 22
The Phoenix Rises
A new collection of the works of Andrea Dworkin
offers a timely re-examination of the radical feminist
and the era of the 1980s “sex wars” over pornography

AIMING FOR JUSTICE ………………… 14
The legal system has failed rape victims and
done little to respond to criticism of its biases.
Feminist legal experts, including Elaine
Craig, author of Putting Trials on Trial: Sexual
Assault and the Failure of the Legal Profession,
are shining light on ways to facilitate greater
justice for sexual assault survivors.
by Michele Landsberg
THE ECOLOGY OF GRIEF ………………. 20
When poet Nikki Reimer’s brother died
suddenly in 2012, she felt like a collection of
body parts taped together by old Scotch tape.
“Trying to pull the molecules of the grief body
back into solid form in order to endure the
minutiae of a day and speak a relatable and
believable person-language” was near impossible.
by Tara-Michelle Ziniuk
