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...

Women and Future of American Democracy

We’ve all heard about the war against women. What hasn’t gotten the same amount of press is that the war goes beyond reproductive health to an attack on women’s most basic civil rights. Ninety-two years ago, the 19th Amendment to the United States Constitution granted American women the right to vote in national and local elections. The amendment is beautiful in its brevity and clarity: ...


Seneca Falls July 19 – 20 1842

On July 19-20, 1848 an extraordinary group of women gathered in Seneca Falls, New York in order to establish a platform for the rights of women and “to analyze the legal and social disabilities women faced and to argue for the most basic rights of women.”(Feminist Theory, Kolmar/Bartkowski) The meeting spanned two days and six sessions, and included a lecture on law, a humorous presentation...


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...


Sisterhood Is Powerful

  Sisterhood is a word that I have written about many times and discussed frequently in Women’s Studies classes. I understood its meaning. I understood the concept. It was not until the last few months that I have experienced it personally and come to fully understand it. You see I have never been a “girls girl.” I played sports growing up, had a few close friends that were girls, bu...


Repealing Obamacare…who benefits?

VIEW VIDEO ABOUT PROTEST Governors from many states have stated they will refuse to implement any part of the Affordable Care Act.  Who actually benefits from these decisions?  Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal was the first to politicize the Affordable Care Act.  By refusing the ACA passed by Congress, signed by our President and ruled constitutional by the U.S. Supreme Court, he is preve...


Protection Should be for Everyone

Five years ago I had no idea. Five years ago my daughter was three sitting in the backseat of our car when she witnessed her stepfather stabbing her mother in the head, neck and back in Cuba. Her mind couldn't comprehend why, how. Five years ago I had no idea about the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA). But I would learn. Sitting in an emergency room bleeding from the head, officers took pi...


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...
