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 2014, Gender Focus was named the “Best Politics Blog” and “Best Activism & Social Justice Blog” in the juried Canadian Weblog Awards, after twice previously winning the “Best Feminist Blog” category.
