International Women’s Day on the cover of the Georgia Straight


Every week our friends at The Georgia Straight provide us with a preview of what you’ll see on – and in – their paper that week. They are the source for lifestyle and entertainment in our city and along with their robust online presence they’ve always released a print edition, distributed everywhere each Thursday.


On the cover this week is International Women’s Day: NDP MLA Melanie Mark is one of a growing number of female politicians who are reshaping perceptions about who really holds power in Vancouver.
