Prime Minister Trudeau claims no-one should be afraid to use the word “Feminist.” Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright and Gloria Steinem chastise young women for selling out the cause for supporting Bernie Sanders over Hillary Clinton. Definitions of what actually defines a Feminist are passionately fought over, defended, rejected and redefined. On the 100th anniversary of the right of some women (read: white) to vote in Canada, Spur celebrates the accomplishments and contradictions of the Feminist Movement and explores feminism in practice.
