(Possibly you realize one of the things we run is the Canada Events Calendar.  Now and again I spot stuff I should pass along and just get busy and fail to do so.  Anyway, I'm just making this thread where I can drop the info off, likely without comment - depending on what other 7348598034850934 things I am doing.)

Hey, Gigi -- can you ever talk back to the people who post to the calendar? This group, eg, should maybe be urged to get out there and support all the women who are blogging to the issue, like BP. The online support could sure stand to grow some.

I can't for this particular one, but I have been contemplating wandering over to the event (it's not far from my ofc) to chat with them.

I'm on the e-mailing list of la Fédération des femmes du Québec. A lot of what I post on feminist events here comes from that.

Here is one from an Aboriginal association though, a big benefit show for a refuge for Aboriginal women
