COMBING THROUGH BLACK
BEAUTY CULTURE . . . 12 
Black hair is political. Whether it’s intention- ally worn as a political statement, or it becomes political based on assumptions of a white- dominant culture, Black hair is never just hair. Cheryl Thompson’s book Beauty in a Box: Detangling the Roots of Canada’s Black Beauty Culture is a fascinating story of history, culture and Black feminist politics.

WITCHES OF THE WORLD UNITE . . .  16 
There’s a witchy aesthetic sweeping through

tarot practitioners and members of a witch 
collective, it’s no surprise, given these times of impending climate crisis and ever-expanding enclosures of capitalism.

VIVEK SHRAYA ……………………………………………. 14
Transforming Transphobia
Vivek Shraya, who came out as trans in 2016, said that
her Hindu community helped nurture her gender nonconformity
in the 1980s. However, her journey has not
been an easy one. Shraya received hate mail, including
death threats in 2017, and responded by creating a comic
book called Death Threat with visual artist Ness Lee.

LIBBY DAVIES ……………………………………………… 18
From the Grassroots to the Commons
Libby Davies, Canada’s first out-lesbian MP, was, for
six terms, a passionate advocate for the underprivileged,
including those she served as MP for Vancouver East,
a constituency that includes Vancouver’s Downtown
Eastside. Her new memoir, Outside In, is a fascinating
telling of her time in office.
by Cindy Filipenko
ANDREA DWORKIN ……………………………………… 22
The Phoenix Rises
A new collection of the works of Andrea Dworkin
offers a timely re-examination of the radical feminist
and the era of the 1980s “sex wars” over pornography
and free expression. Johanna Fateman, co-editor
of Last Days at Hot Slit: The Radical Feminism of
Andrea Dworkin offers some surprising lessons about
Dworkin’s works for feminists today.
