Rape Culture, CanLit, and You
Zoe Todd frames her critique of the UBCAccountable movement in terms of the intersecting and overlapping forces of rape culture, colonialism, and white supremacy. She particularly calls upon author Joseph Boyden, the initial public voice for the open letter, to reconcile his position with his work on Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women.
