Dear Todd

  I am a woman, a survivor of rape, and a registered Republican. You have issued an apology for the uneducated “off the cuff” remark you made where you stated “from what I understand from doctors, pregnancy [ as a result of rape] is really rare. If it is a legitimate rape, the female body has a ways to try shut that whole thing down.” Todd, I do not accept your apology! The ...


Welcome to the Birth Revolution

Right now women and the men who support them are using their voices, their votes, their many sources of power to preserve women’s rights and continue the fight for complete equality. Women’s rights organizations are locked and loaded; their supporters are in action on the paved streets and virtual highways every day. As many prepare to march on Washington this August 18 to oppose the War on Wo...


Abortion – A Paradigm shift

There are times in your life when you read something that completely shifts your paradigm.  Lynn Beisner's Blog did just that for me.   I have read and heard many stories of why someone is so lucky their mother didn't have an abortion or mothers who were glad they didn't choose abortion.  These mothers are deemed a "good person" for their decision. Lynn Beisner's "I Wish My Mother Had Abo...


Soldiers Needed for the War on Rape

  The problem of rape still plagues the United States. Why? Because rape mainly affects women: 9 out of 10 reported rape victims in the United States are female.[1] Under the leadership of a predominantly male government, rape receives little attention (the House is comprised of 362 men and 76 women; the Senate 17 women and 83 men).[2] As an example of the general disinterest our governm...


Can a middle aged white guy be a feminist?

[caption id="" align="alignright" width="200"] Gloria Steinem has been a leading advocate for women's rights for decades[/caption] I never realized, until recently, that a man could be a feminist.  It still sounds odd to me. When I hear the term I think of Gloria Steinem, or even of the mythical Rosie the Riveter from World War II. I never think of guys who believe in equality as ‘feminis...

Light a Fire!

I think summer must be a hard time for any movement, but especially for women’s movements.  The legislative season is in a lull, no one outside of the movement is ready to talk definitively about politics, and all the students in the movement have taken a hiatus until the fall semester.  I’m embarrassed to admit that I have yet to find new state campus coordinators for my region.  It seem...

Obama, It’s Time to Protect Immigrant Women

As an undocumented immigrant, Elvia knew it was risky to go to the police. But after 30 years in an abusive relationship, she had finally reached her breaking point. So Elvia spoke up. She told her story to the cops in her Alabama town. They helped her secure a restraining order against her husband. The local women’s shelter helped her get back on her feet. For Elvia, the system worked. In fa...
