Can Your Conversations Change the World?

Orca Book Publishers | PopActivism


Being a feminist can mean different things to different people, but one thing it always includes is the belief in equality and human rights. Whether you are talking with one close friend or hanging out with a group of classmates, it matters what you say and how you say it. Not everyone is going to agree with your opinions, especially when you are talking about social justice issues. Can Your Conversations Change the World? provides insight into the origins and history of feminism, how it plays out on the global stage and what it means to be a young feminist and activist today.

"As in Can You Smartphone Change the World? and Can Your Outfit Change the World?, the information presented here is engaging, conversational, and encourages reflection...Highly Recommended."

---

"A good jumping-off point for budding feminists searching for an upbeat place to start. Idealistic and hopeful."

---

"The book's focus on the importance of conversation is a particularly admirable choice for this huge topic…This is an accessible book for young girls and it is armed with enough concrete information to begin this important conversation."

The Law is (Not) for Kids

Athabasca University Press


In this practical guide to the law for young people of Canada, Ned Lecic and Marvin Zuker provide an all-encompassing manual meant to empower and educate children and youth and those that serve them. The authors address questions about how rights and laws affect the lives of young people at home, at school, at work, and in their relationships as they draw attention to the many ways in which a person’s life can intersect with the law. Deliberately refraining from taking a moral approach, the authors instead advocate for the rights of children and provide examples of how young people can get their legal rights enforced. In addition to being critical information for youth about citizenship, The Law is (Not) for Kids is a valuable resource for teachers, counsellors, lawyers, and all those who support youth in their encounters with the law.

---

"There is a gap in information about these topics for youth, rather than for adults about youth. [...] This book should be made widely available and incorporated into school curriculum."

---

"A very important, useful, and welcome addition to a sparse literature targeting young people."

Ned Lecic is a tutor, writer, copy editor, and translator
