Hey wait! I just remembered that despite a day heavier with schoolwork, that a group of print friends and I will be indeed heading down to the Ryerson Lecture Series Guerrilla Girls event on March 6th! It's at the Metropolitan Convention Centre (near Union Station). Tickets to the event are free, though all filled up, but I believe you can to get in on standby. I'm pretty excited to hear this collective speak about their work that I've read about so often...will most definitely report back...
Have a thoughtful Women's day!
