Journalism is in a precarious position: Across the country, local newspapers are vanishing, politicians are accusing journalists of spreading ‘fake news,’ and conservative pundits are permitted to spread their vitriolic opinions as though they are fact. It’s enough to make anyone want to abandon the field—and yet, there is hope. As these five writers demonstrate, feminists are still fighting, and turning the tide, in this battle for the future of journalism. Join acclaimed wrters Alicia Elliott, Elizabeth Renzetti, Emily Riddle, Lorimer Shenher and Andrea Warner as they share stories from the trenches and offer a way forward.
A part of Growing Room: A Feminist Literary Festival, taking place at venues across Vancouver, March 8-19.
