The Infectious Myth - Feminist Struggles in Canada’s Mountain Paradise

Nelson is a small, tranquil city hidden in Canada’s western mountains, but even it is not immune from the gender wars. Guest Donna Macdonald describes how women fought back when their beloved Women’s Centre was opened to people of all “marginalized genders”, including biological males. When the board of intersectionalist feminists refused to negotiate, their complaint went to the British Columbia Supreme Court, which eventually approved the conduct of a new AGM, including elections of a completely new board of directors. The board is now almost split between advocates for women and trans allies, so the tension has not been resolved yet. This is a good example of a seemingly small, local issue, that illustrates a much bigger issue.
