We have almost reached the end of Woman Abuse Prevention Month, and it’s been heartening to see initiatives and campaigns pop up around town and in cyberspace in observation of it. My friend Leah and I have our own initiative that we’re really excited about happening this Saturday, and we hope that you will attend! All proceeds will go to SACHA to mark this important month, and to honour the important work that they do for the Hamilton community.
Have you heard of Fifth Column? If not, you’re probably not alone. Fifth Column were a multi-disciplinary post-punk group– a group of women from Toronto who formed in 1981. Two members, Caroline Azar and GB Jones, remained a constant until the group disbanded in the 1990s.
