We started our March show with a piece by Preeti Dhaliwal on a crime that has received widespread international media attention – the rape of a young woman in India.
In honour of International Women’s Day, Malek Yalaoui reported on a demonstration held in Montreal celebrating this event.
Alyssa Clutterbuck covered the vicious responses to those speaking out against rape in the wake of the convictions of 2 boys in Stubenville, Ohio. They were charged with sexually assaulting an unconscious girl, an event that was captured on video and widely circulated on social media outlets.
We also featured an exciting piece by Victoria Nam, who turned a critical eye to Status Quo, a new documentary by Karen Cho that explores the state of feminism and the status of women in Canada. We then held a roundtable discussion, where fellow Spitfiyahs shared their opinions and thoughts.
