I’m a blogger and political junkie from Vancouver, BC, Canada and the author of the 2011 Revenge of the Feminerd guest blog column here at Bitch. My background is in Women’s Studies and for the last three years I’ve been running the feminist blog Gender Focus. Gender Focus placed first in the Canadian Weblog Awards in the Best Feminist Blog category last year. I also write on gender issues for the Huffington Post.
My taste in music is all over the place. Youâ€™ll always find musical theatre soundtracks on my playlist â€“ right now In the Heights and 9 to 5 are getting a lot of rotation. Iâ€™m also listening to quite a bit of mellow, alternative/indie-esque, singer-songwriter-y Canadian music like Dan Mangan, Kathryn Calder, Kathleen Edwards, and Jenn Grant.
I'm a big fan of cooking shows like Chopped, Iron Chef America, and Top Chef Canada. When those aren't on I'm usually watching Doctor Who or Star Trek: The Next Generation.
Just finishing up Hilary Mantel's Bring Up the Bodies. Recently read Margaret Atwood's In Other Worlds: On SF and the Human Imagination.
