January 23rd

PeopleReading this column by Georgie Binks (written almost a year ago) reminded me that we're just a week away (January 23) from the anniversary of the election of Canada's New Government. (You have to wonder whether they'll be calling themselves "Canada's One-Year-Old Government" next week.)

I think Georgie called it well, predicting that there would be a revitalization of feminism in this country following the election of this most retro of governments.

I know a lot of women (and men) who are a lot angrier and a lot more politically active today than they were at this time a year ago -- or even six months ago, prior to the Status of Women cuts and other giant steps backwards during the Fall of Shame.

I'm coming up with ideas about how I'm going to mark January 23rd -- both online and offline. (Stay tuned!)

If you're thinking along the same lines, maybe you could blog about your plans and post a link to your post below. I'd love to hear what you've got in mind.

BTW -- Don't miss this YouTube video about the Status of Women cuts. It's really inspiring.
