Why, hello there

Our hiatus is finally over and now the NB Rebelles - Fredericton are back to meeting again.
Until January, unless otherwise noted, our meetings will be taking place on Wednesday evenings at 7pm in the downtown Fredericton area.

Please do come to a meeting or email if you're interested in joining the group or if you're interested in joining the feminist gumbooting troupe.
Same goes if you want to receive our email news letter (it's excellent, trust me).

Other than that, I just wanted to post this glorious comic to make up for all of the Weekly Feminist Photos that were missed during the hiatus.

Hope to see you soon,
Enjoy the autumn air!

Don't sideline women's reproductive health care

For those of you who have been following the health care reform debate in the states, and thinking it's crazy, have a gander at this person's take on how it will affect women.

"Myths and misinformation are flying in the fight over health-care reform... One of the harshest and loudest promoters of this negative campaign is Rush Limbaugh, who recently said on his radio program, "Reproductive health care is abortion.""

And for those of you who may be thinking "Pfewf! SO glad we have public healthcare!", I had to pay $40 yesterday to see a doctor at a private walk-in clinic in Ottawa because they do not accept NB coverage - meaning if I couldn't pay, I would have to make my way to the hospital (no where near where I am) or not see a doctor. New Brunswick cannot afford private healthcare.
