No Difference Between the Parties? Think Again

As we enter the general election, some claim there is no difference between the Democratic Party and the Republican Party. One way to look at the differences is to compare the bills introduced and/or passed both on the federal and state level. Another is to compare the party platforms. We created Laws of Two Nations to look at both. The 2016 party platforms will be voted upon at their respective...


President Trump? Not If We Unite!

In March of 2014, Helene Swanson left San Francisco on her pilgrimage to walk across the country, covering the 15 states that have yet to ratify the ERA. Her pilgrimage ended on Women's Equality Day (August 26, 2015) with a March and Rally in Washington DC. I was honored and humbled to share this day with Helene and so many activists celebrating her journey. What follows is my speech at the rally....


Rally4Equality – A Time to Come Together

This Saturday, September 13th, many organizations and individuals will come together at the We Are Woman Rally4Equality to speak out against those who would deny women constitutional equality, disenfranchise voters and give those with more money an unfair advantage in our elections. It is time to put aside past differences and stand together to achieve equality and fairness. There is far too mu...


Feminists, Mujeristas and Womanists, It’s Time To Unite!

Unless you are one of the few charmed women in the world that has been spared any struggle, it is time to recognize that we women are facing battles that our mothers and grandmothers fought years ago and policies being written by privileged white males. Most of us are in the process of living a full and well rounded life. In some cases you will be acknowledged for those experiences and in others...


Happy Anniversary

  I am coming upon my one year anniversary with UniteWomen.org and have been reflecting on what has happened for me in that year.  It started at work when I ran across a news blurb about Paul Ryan’s fight to grant zygotes personhood rights under the United States Constitution.  I snorted out loud at my desk.  How incredibly ridiculous!  As a women’s studies minor in college, I had re...


2013 – A Year of Collaboration, Success and Learning

I was recently asked what the most memorable moment of 2013 was for me as President/CEO of UniteWomen.org.  In contemplating my answer, I realized there were countless memorable moments this year. We’ve had some fantastic successes that brought us great joy, and we also made some mistakes that brought about some heartache, but lessons were learned throughout – and the good far outweighed the ...

Wake Up! The Attack On Our Vote!

I have spent the last week on Voter ID Legislation and Requirements for each and every state in this country and I have to say that tonight it is complete BUT I have such a horrible knot in the pit of my stomach. I researched & gathered all the information a while back and had not had the time to format it and organize it. Now that I have, I wish I could stand on top of the roof, scream at...
