Nov 16, 2019 - The Talking Back Feminist Media Conference

When: November 16 - 17th
Where: Toronto Media Arts Centre, 32 Lisgar St.
Tickets: $10 - $25

Shameless is an independent Canadian voice for smart, strong, sassy young women and trans youth, covering issues that matter to young women and trans youth since 2004! It's a fresh alternative to typical teen magazines, packed with articles about arts, culture and current events, reflecting the neglected diversity of our readers' interests and experiences. Grounded in principles of social justice and anti-oppression, Shameless aims to do more than just publish a magazine: we aim to inspire, inform, and advocate for young women and trans youth.

In celebration of our 15th year of independent feminist publishing for teens, Shameless will host the first ever Talking Back Feminist Media Conference on November 16th and 17th, 2019. This conference is funded by the Toronto Arts Council.

Nov 18, 2019 - Flu Fighter Outreach Blitz for Paid Sick Days

When: Monday, November 18th, 12noon
Where: South-west corner of University Ave and College

As Health Minister Christine Elliott kicks off this year's flu shot campaign amid hospital overcrowding and predictions of a severe flu season, we want her to know that fair labour law is an essential part of keeping Ontarians healthy. Last year, Elliott's government took away paid sick days and brought back sick note requirements. That means we can expect a more severe flu season and increased strains on our emergency health care system.

The flu shot is an important step, but it isn't enough. This flu season, we know that in order to stay healthy, we need the Ontario government to bring back our paid sick days and scrap sick note requirements. If you agree, join us to spread the word and grow the movement.
