Can feminism pay the bills?

Ladyfest is putting on this awesome event tomorrow night at the Tranzac and we’re tabling so we  hope to see you there!

Can feminism pay the bills is a night of creative, comedic, academic, grassroots, and musical responses to the topic of feminism and money. From personal finances to organizational funding, we’ve all felt the squeeze and it’s time for this movement to pay up! How can we balance demanding recognition of our labour and support of non-profits we believe in? How do we talk about inequity and lack of resources when many of us have dinner on the table and a roof over our heads? How can we sell this thing to make a cool million? Come out and learn and laugh about where our collective stocks are sitting, how to increase their value, and when we should just sell.
