Samir Amin | March 28, 2015

He is considered one of Africa’s leading political economists and was one of the pioneers of describing modern human history from the perspective of the Third World, arguing that the countries of the South were not latecomers to capitalism, but were integrated into the global economy from the start in a position of dependency to the rich, industrialized North.

What's New: Tragedy of Party Communism

by Michael Brie | March 28, 2015

Never in history has a political movement so quickly captured the imagination of so many people and shaped so many societies after its own image as did the twentieth-century party communism founded by Lenin. And never before were so many supporters of such a movement so repressed, persecuted, jailed, and murdered by its leaders and their apparatuses as in the period associated with Stalinism (and also with Maoism). The greatness and misery of party communism are without parallel in world history.

Forum: The Historic Feminist Victories of the 1980s on Reproductive Rights and Pay Equity

The Historic Feminist Victories of the 1980s on Reproductive Rights and Pay Equity
Looking Back and Forward

This public meeting commemorates two of the greatest achievements of the modern Canadian feminist movement, when thirty years ago, working closely together with the labour movement, the historic legislative and judicial victories on pay and workplace equity and women's reproductive rights were both won. This meeting brings two of the leading feminists who acted as the link and buckle with the labour movement in those victories of the mid-1980s together with two women activists who are engaged in a new generation of struggles on women's reproductive rights and pay and workplace equity to discuss the legacy of these victories and assess their continuing impact and relevance today.


* Carolyn Egan was a founding member of the Ontario Coalition for Abortion Clinics which sparked the campaign to overturn the federal abortion law by opening an illegal abortion clinic with Dr. Henry Morgentaler. She continues to be active in the struggle for reproductive justice for all women, and is president of the Steelworker Toronto Area Council.

* Mary Cornish is a senior partner in Cavalluzzo Shilton McIntyre & Cornish, a Toronto public interest law firm. As a feminist human rights lawyer, she continues to chair the Equal Pay Coalition, a broad based Ontario civil society coalition which successfully lobbied for the implementation of Ontario's proactive pay equity laws.

* Anjali Kulkarni is a fourth year medical student at the University of Toronto. She is the current National Officer of Reproductive and Sexual Health (NORSH) with the Canadian Federation of Medical Students (CFMS). Previously she was the co-president of Medical Students for Choice (MSFC) at the University of Toronto.
