She reflects on those experiences, and the personalities and politics involved, in her memoir, The Broad Side. Eve spent her childhood in 1930s Warsaw, the daughter of a Polish army officer.

When the Nazis invaded, she and her family took refuge in England, arriving in Canada in 1952. By the 1970s, Eve was an active part of Torontos lesbian-feminist community and a founding collective member of Broadside newspaper. Sharply observant and fearlessly honest, Eve Zarembas memories and insights will entertain and provoke readers, often simultaneously.

She provides an inside look at a disappearing but hugely influential period in the Canadian womens movement and the people and ideas that shaped it. Illustrated with photos and ephemera from Eves personal collection, The Broad Side makes a sparkling contribution to Canadian feminist history.
