Elizabeth Renzetti: On Bad Tempered Women and Other Tales
Elizabeth Renzetti, a bestselling author and acclaimed journalist, will discuss her new collection of essays, Shrewed: A Wry and Closely Observed Look at the Lives of Women and Girls.  

Drawing upon Renzetti’s decades of reporting on feminist issues, Shrewed is a book about feminism’s crossroads. From Hillary Clinton’s failed campaign to the quest for equal pay, from the lessons we can learn from old ladies to the future of feminism in a turbulent world, Renzetti takes a pointed, witty look at how far we’ve come - and how far we have to go.

Elizabeth Renzetti is a columnist for the Globe and Mail, and has reported for many years from Toronto, Los Angeles, and London. She is also the bestselling author of the novel Based on a True Story, which was a finalist for the Kobo Emerging Writer Prize and a Canadian bestseller.
