No Time for Reflection – A Game Plan for 2014

An anniversary is a great time to reflect on one’s past. I wrote a piece last month that reflects on our accomplishments of 2013:   The goals of 2014 are far too critical to dwell on our past.  Legislation and rhetoric against our rights is occurring at an increasing rate already this year.  How do we stop this momentum?   Consider that mid-term election funding for Republican ...


Open Letter to President Barack Obama and the U.S. Senate

UniteWomen.org ACTION stands with the pro-choice, civil rights and LGBTQ communities against the nomination of Michael Boggs to the Federal District Court of Georgia.

But our laws are not written by legislation alone. Equality is...

Everyone Hates Rape…Right?

UNITEWOMEN.ORG and RAINN would like to be able to say, “Yes!” “Isn't it a given that everyone hates rape?” is something we hear quite often when inviting people to submit a statement for UniteWomen.org’s Unite Against Rape campaign.  Tragically, this question is not as rhetorical as it would seem.  A significant portion of our population is either unaware of, or indifferent to, the in...

She was kept as adornment and bred for simplicity. Over years she'd been neglected; the gift of flight refused. Little by little as decades passed, she seemed to lose her muse. I assume she needed freedom to find her ...


THINK GLOBALLY BUT ACT LOCALLY

Buying locally means just what it says: purchase whatever foods and goods that are grown and produced as close to home as possible. You will not only support your local farmers and economy but have peace of mind that your purchases conform to all governmental guidelines for production and farming methods. Many people never stop to consider where their food comes from; especially if it is market...
