Women’s Rights: An Artist’s Perspective – Gail Smuda

UniteWomen.org is pleased to announce the second of twelve featured artists in our online art show "Women's Rights: An Artist's Perspective", Gail Smuda. Smuda's artwork is entitled Women Through The Eyes of History. My work is mixed media with three areas of concentration. books, mixed media and fiber, and frequently a combination of these medias. For me, artist's books provide a means to con...


The Sisterhood of Motherhood

I love you, Mom! Do you remember the first time your baby said those words? I’m not sure I can specify a precise moment, either. Does it matter? Has any sound ever been more beautiful? No, let's not quantify the moments of our motherhood journeys. We mothers are unquantifiable! Our power is too intense for measurement or commodification. Do you feel this? This power is in you, it is you, it i...


Changing The Rape Culture – One Voice At A Time

Anger is often the catalyst that compels us to do things.  It was anger that compelled two women to start “Unite Against the War on Women” last year.   Again, it was anger that compelled us to embark on the “Unite Against Rape” campaign. Alexandria Goddard, the Steubenville blogger, drew the world’s attention to the rape of Jane Doe. People were outraged that a human being could be...


Irresponsible

This is a message to every woman who has had an abortion, Or taken Plan B, Or given up a child for adoption, Or became a mother before the world said you should. If anyone says you are irresponsible, remember. Remember what it took to get you there. Remember the bravery of exposing your body to another in a world that tells you your body is not good enough. Remember the gasps and moans...


Dear Jane Doe of Steubenville

Dear Jane Doe of Steubenville, I know that right now you may not think that life will ever get better. I know that you may think you will never have the life you dreamed of before this happened. No matter what just know this - you are not alone. There are millions of us in this country. There are billions of us in the world. We once were Rape Victims and with time and healing we have become sur...


One Woman’s Demand

Women have not been treated as full citizens of these United States from the inception of this country, and our Declaration of Independence and Constitution through the amendment process, did not remedy these deficiencies, our lives have been restricted unduly because of false information and invalid ideas which depicted women as inferior human beings in mind and body incapable of self determi...


Arguing About Exceptions

Last week, another white male Republican congressman stuck his foot in his mouth a la Todd "Legitimate Rape" Akin. Rep. Joe Walsh (R - IL), who already has lady problems in the form of $100,000 in unpaid child support, caused quite a furor when he said that it is never necessary to perform an abortion to save a woman's life, because of advances in technology. When reporters asked him if he was...


Silence No More

The first thing an abusive man teaches “his” woman is to be silent. I am sitting here wondering if I dare make this analogy.  I do not wish to make light of those women who find themselves trapped in the reality of abuse so please do not make the assumption that I am not aware.  I have seen the harm that a man can do to a woman or a child and somehow justify it in his demented diseased mi...


How Dare They!

May I please ask what in the hell is going on in this country? It seems to me that batshit crazy has spread like a virus and infected not only some politicians but a large portion of the general population as well. I am used to crazy. We southerners keep our crazy relatives in the home. That way when visitors stay too long we just parade crazy Aunt Lula out and let her have a go at them. This...


A Poem for the Cause

Uteri Unite Us you lust for my potential vessel bowl in which to plant vase of the wilted contents that I wish emptied you long to quench an immense thirst for what has always been for what will always be Mine you want to enter the hollow cave stake it out build a democratic infrastructure in which I have no vote I unfold the layers of time that covers my arrow, my flint the han...
