About Gender Focus

Founded in 2009 by Vancouverite Jarrah Hodge and featuring posts by feminist bloggers from across Canada, Gender Focus looks at politics, pop culture, and current events from an anti-racist feminist perspective. GF aims to showcase news and opinion relating to issues of social inequality, stereotyping and representations of marginalized groups in society, and the intersections between gender and public policy. In 2011 and 2012 Gender Focus placed first in the juried Canadian Weblog Awards “Best Feminist Blog” category. For more about Gender Focus’ policies and contributors, visit the About page.
