I originally posted a few paragraphs of this story on the front page of this site under the title, ‘Shame on you Toronto’. As I like to keep front-page stories short and this one keeps growing, I’m turning it into a blog post.
Meghan Murphy is a Canadian feminist who has the courage to do what feminists are supposed to do and stand up for women. She is the creator of the excellent Feminist Current site.
Opposed to her are those who prioritise the feelings of men and their entitlement to redefine what women are.
I first got wind of the fact that Meghan Murphy was scheduled to speak at an event – organised by a group called ‘Radical Feminists Unite’ – in a building belonging to the Toronto Public Library (TPL) when I saw something about a bunch of local authors threatening to boycott the library.
