“Is it unrequited love? A love triangle? Do you have a crush on feminism? Perhaps you are having a lovers’ quarrel?” – from the Love Letters to Feminism call for submissions, Carolyn Jervis.
Love Letters to Feminism is a touring exhibit curated by Carolyn Jervis. Jervis’ call for participation asked contributors to mail in their love letters to feminism. The exhibition asks contributors and audiences to reflect on the nature of their relationships with feminism. Since its original installation in the Women’s Studies Exhibition Space in Fall 2009, Love Letters to Feminism has toured Montreal, Toronto, and Ottawa.
