Today we discussed cuts to social security, and what that means for women. Below are some of the articles or links that we will used in our discussion.

In our conversation, we discussed employment insurance, maternity benefits and the misperception of women’s choice of domestic work*. We used the research compiled by McMullin, Avison and Cassidy (2001) from here and here. Also check out the stats discussed on women and employment in Canada. 

For information regarding governmental cuts to government-funded programs, check out this Globe and Mail article. We also compared these cuts to what the government has spent on fighter jets in another Globe and Mail article, but could be spending on “green electricity” – so check out that information on

*We understand that some women choose to be domestic workers, and respect those decisions. That being said, we’re also bringing attention to the fact that many women don’t have a choice, because of the way such things as employment insurance and maternity benefits have been structured.

In studio performance by Crissi Cochrane: July 4th

We were lucky enough to have Crissi Cochrane in the studio with us on Monday July 4th. We hung out and asked her some questions on what its like to be a solo female artist in the music scene, and she played some of her new songs for us in studio. She was as delightful as her music.

We met up with Crissi before the show, who picked out some music. Here are some of Crissi’s choices.
