It’s All Too Overwhelming

Today is one of those days when I question my complete commitment to fighting for women’s rights.  Tomorrow our Supreme Court rules on the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act and the U.S. House votes to hold Eric Holder in contempt of Congress. I have certainly had other days where I have wondered why I spend so much of my time fighting for our rights.  I see pure politics and ...


I Am a Woman

UniteWomen.org, equality, women's rights, domestic violence, rape, incest,

I am a woman Born of a woman of struggle The struggle of a time and place where choices not known kept the mind from soaring.

These lawmakers have no capacity for understanding what their actions do to millions of women across this country. It’s all a political game to them. Why else would ...


This is not the end…

Two weeks after Bloody Sunday, Dr. King assured a gathering of organizers, activists and community members that they should not despair because the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice. On March 25, 1965, having completed the third march to Montgomery, the city that gave birth to the civil rights movement, Dr. King spoke these words on the steps of the Alabama State ...
