hate propaganda 
In Canada, the Criminal Code hate propaganda law provides protection to"identifiable groups" distinguished by colour, race, religion, ethnic origin and sexual orientation.  "Gender" is not included and so women and girls have no protection from hate propaganda.  The federal government refuses to amend the law to include gender, although in 2003 it passed a Private Member's Bill (Bill C-250) adding "sexual orientation".  While this Bill was going through public hearings and review, neither politicians in the House of Commons nor members of the Senate amended the law to include women.  This section contains information relating to that  discriminatory and unconstitutional situation. 
At the left is a picture of misogynist rapper, Eminem, as he appeared on stage at Toronto's Sky Dome, despite my efforts to have him prevented from performing.  Check out the Eminem section for more info on this and other issues involving this performer.
 (More on violent rap can be found in the Music section.)
