Women’s History and Feminism – Addressing the Elephant in the Room

Elephant In The Room

Women’s History has only become a serious academic area of research in the last several decades. In the public it has been a shorter time than that. Sure we all grew up learning about Susan B. Anthony, Sojourner Truth, Ida B. Wells, Amelia Earhart, and Eleanor Roosevelt but even the stories of those women’s lives were not very well examined until more recently. There is a complaint within t...

Black History Month – Whose Story Is Missing?

African American History

Guest Blogger Davida Lindsay-Harewood: It is impossible to teach the true history of the US without including Africans and African Americans.  There were Africans on Columbus’ journey of exploration of the Americas.  Africans were present in the early settlements in Jamestown and other colonies.  Every war this county has fought included people of African descent from the War of Independen...

The Real Life Hurt of the 20-Week Ban

Roe v Wade

On this 42nd Anniversary of Roe v Wade, the U.S. House of Representatives tabled a 20-week abortion ban bill - for now. Some female Republican House members were concerned about the GOP's anticipated rhetoric over the rape exception in the bill and how it would reflect on the party. Some in the media and pro-choice movement are heralding these women for standing up for changing the wording of the ...


Religious Freedom Restoration Act – Freedom For Whom?

Separation of Church and State

When making efforts to place limits on those rights, politicians have increasingly turned to religious dogma to just...

The Rosebud Sioux Tribe (Sicangu Lakota Oyate), whose land would have been transversed by the pipeline, had strongly opposed the pipeline. The Rosebud Si...


Election Day-Not the End of Our Journey

UniteWomen.org-Vote

As I look at the final two days of voting, I imagine that you, like me, are exhausted and angry, yet still determined to inspire more people to get to the polls. First, we should reflect on what we’ve accomplished and realize this is a process that will not end on November 4th. We have all been part of a movement to educate and motivate people to use their voices and stand up for equality…...
