I’m hysperia. The name appears nowhere on the blog since I changed templates – it used to show up on the posts. Oh well.
This is a blog of words, pictures, films … poetry, photographs, prose and politics. Written by me at some point, often written by others and pointed to here. I’m a born and bred in Toronto girl (“girl” in the colloquial sense) so you’ll find Canadiana, but also Americana and Internationale.
Once a lawyer, once a law prof, now a poet and a Feminist for forty years – it’s my feminanniversary! Forty years ago I joined the Women’s International Terrorist Conspiracy from Hell (yes, W.I.T.C.H.) and I’m surprised we weren’t all burned at the stake. I’d be subject to rendition today if I were a member of such an organization! So don’t tell …
W.I.T.C.H. was a group of socialist feminists and that’s what I am today, though W.I.T.C.H. is long gone. Call me a dinosaur feminist then …
Positive comments are welcome. Criticism is fine and also welcomed, when offered in a positive spirit. In other words, if you make me feel bad, I will delete and only I know for sure what makes me feel bad. But if you read my blog, you should be able to figure it out. Be nice to anyone else you should meet here too.

The quote that sums up a big part of me and that has now abided with me for quite a long time so that I can attest to its flexibility and resilience:
“To each according to her ability, from each according to her need.” Karl Marx, Critique of the Gotha Programme, 1875
