Israeli wall 4

 

July 27, 2014 Susan notes: Over the last 10 days violence has erupted again. It seems a good time to revisit this post.

May 31, 2010 Susan notes: I first posted this blog on January 20, 2009. Today, May 31, 2010, the world erupts once again in violence and hatred sparked by the killing of Pro-Palestinian aid activists by Israeli soldiers. It seemed like a good time to revisit this age-old question once again...

Categories // Amazing Susan's Blog

happy_canada_day.pngJuly 1st is my country’s birthday. Over the past 20 years, I’ve become a citizen of the world. Nevertheless, I love Canada, and I missed it during my 18 years as an expatriate.

(Needless to say I didn't miss using tax software and paying Canadian taxes from which being an expat freed me!)

10 Chilling Violence Against Women in #Canada Statistics

Categories // Amazing Susan's Blog

WHO VAWAccording to the World Health Organization (WHO) about one third of women worldwide are victims of physical and sexual violence. 

It's easy to point the finger at other countries and cultures while ignoring the problems in our own backyards.

It's important that we fight for change in our own countries and cultures because violence against women is everywhere, not just in other places we hear about in the news.

may day_womanMaggie McNeill, otherwise known as The Honest Courtesan, writes a daily post on her blog (oh if only I were as disciplined as she!).

McNeill is the mistress of logical argument, advocate for sex worker rights and a colourful commentator on all things carnal.

If it has to do with sex and love, McNeill has likely blogged about it.

Rosie Inspires Feminist Teen

Categories // Amazing Susan's Blog

Rosie the RiveterSometimes I despair that young women fail to realize how far women have come and at what cost.

So when my friend Mary Heston sent me a link to a video produced by her teenaged daughter Cecilia for a World War II school project, I said Yipppeee!

We All Make Herstory in Our Own Way

SQ 204I have spent a lifetime not fitting in (more on that: Here's To Being A Crazy One. A Misfit. A Rebel. And A Square Peg In A Round Hole.)

I live in a space many would not dare to go. And I am much less "out there" than others.

I look around me I see women rebels and adventurers, changemakers and hellraisers.

If I don’t pay attention, or listen well enough, it tends to shout. Deafeningly. Just lke I felt my Mom (pictured at left in 2009), sometimes did when I was a kid.

The Tracks of My Tears

Categories // Amazing Susan's Blog

tracks_of_my_tears.jpgSome people say I cry easily. I guess it’s true.

I feel things deeply. And I have no problem letting those deep feelings overflow in the form of big, fat, salty tears that roll gently, slowly, and sweetly down my cheeks.

I am at peace with crying. I’ve learned to be totally OK with it, because I know it washes away poison and creates a river in which happiness can flow.
