HEATHER MENZIESHeather doesn’t distinguish between what drives her as an activist and writer. For her, the two are interconnected. She believes in promoting ongoing dialogue between the realm of ideas and the realm of action with the medium connecting them being the stories and dialogue itself.

Heather has given lecture series and taught courses in women’s studies, Canadian studies and communications at a number of Canadian universities. As an adjunct professor and contract lecturer at Carleton University in Ottawa, Heather looks at how Canada and the people who live here are being shaped by and are responding to the social, political and economic trends roughly associated with post-industrialism, post-modernism and globalization in her Canadian Studies course Canada in a Post-Industrial Era.
