Monday Media Mutiny is a once-monthly feminist event organized by Women, Action, & the Media (WAM!) Vancouver, in which community members meet to perform a quick action that fights back against sexist representations of women in the media.

At last month’s Monday Media Mutiny event, we made bookmarks and postcards bearing messages of body positivity and protest against objectification and sexism in print media. These can be slipped inside magazines, books, and other publications that promote damaging stereotypes and images of women.

This month, we will disseminate our handiwork in a top-secret and super fun guerrilla feminist ninja mission. Meet us on the southwest corner of Broadway and Granville at 7pm on March 18th with your bookmarks andpostcards. If you weren’t at the last event or don’t have any left, don’t worry – we’ll bring extras! Just be sure to RSVP so we know about how many to bring.

When our covert culture-jamming operation is complete (which it should be within about half an hour), we are tentatively planning to migrate to a WAM! member’s house to watch an awesome feminist film. Details coming soon.
