Since April 2016, Concordia’s working group on Feminism and Controversial Humour has been meeting to talk about humour that addresses race, sexual assault, abortion and disability — operating under the premise that feminists may be particularly well-positioned to understand not only the costs but also the benefits of joking about structural inequities, including their most violent and traumatic manifestations.

On March 9, feminist comics talk about identity, abortion, sexual assault—and all the issues affecting their lives. Hosted by Emma Cooper, with Shirley Whalen, Rush Kazi, Kirsten Finch, and featuring Natalie Willett. 

Doors open at 6:30 PM. Suggested $5 donation.
