ELLE (Canada) - - Editor's Note -

In hon­our of In­ter­na­tional Women’s Day on March 8, we’ve ded­i­cated this is­sue to ex­plor­ing what it means to be a fem­i­nist to­day. Don’t miss the thought­ful piece by An­to­nia Zer­bisias—who co-cre­ated the

hash­tag #BeenRaped Never Re­ported— on fem­i­nism’s on­line re­nais­sance (page 128)

and Clara Young’s es­say on why fem­i­nism is sud­denly trendy (page 70). If there’s any doubt in your mind that women con­tinue to face unimag­in­able cru­el­ties and pro­found in­jus­tices, read Susan McClel­land’s piece on Rey­haneh Jab­bari (page 234). This Ira­nian woman was hanged for mur­der­ing a man whom she ac­cused of at­tempt­ing to rape her. McClel­land presents ex­cerpts from some of the let­ters Jab­bari wrote from prison

be­fore her death.
