Showcasing the fight for political equality and the fearless females blazing the trail, to be stopped only once their hairstyle does not a headline make.
My Body. My Choice
First, it was birth control, now it is abortion bans. They just want us to go back to sitting at home, taking care of their children while they work and use us as their sex toys and political playground. I think the fuck not.
I am tired of getting taught. Sometimes I just want to dream. Like who would we be if we didn't dream about how to make life more accessible, more inclusive, more possible for every crevice of our country? As we can see, the direction of our country is in a stuck place. Although we can be hopeful in 2020 that we get a President that is for humanity, and not just personal gain/profits, I find that it is ordinary people that really can keep us all in mind. Sometimes laws, books, and music are all good things. But that is too simple, I don't want to be given the lyrics, the formulas, the "ways that the world is supposed to be."
Here Are Ways You Can Support Muslim Women
It's no secret that there are people everywhere who seem to miss the mark when it comes to treating our fellow human beings with respect.
Here's Why Women Wore White During the SOTU...
The State of the Union recently went down in Washington, and it came with no surprise. Among other things, the women of our country came out to make a statement, and that's precisely what they did.
#MeToo - Strength in Solidarity
After Donald Trump’s Access Hollywood tapes emerged in the days before the US Presidential election in the fall of 2016, and the SOB got elected anyway, a full-blown revolution of women banding together was destined to be born. Trump getting elected and not paying a price for his “alleged” misdeeds helped ensure that eventuality.
Why Don't Women Just Come Forward?
In recent years, there have been many allegations of sexual abuse that allegedly happened in the past, the most recent being Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh. This particular incident happened over 30 years ago in which he supposedly groped, grinded on, and held his hand over her mouth. People are wondering why she didn’t come forward sooner. I can only speak from a male perspective of my own.

A Lesson in Feminism and Adult Entertainment for Rudy Giuliani
It’s hard to hold my tongue when I hear people, particularly men, claim that a female who has worked in the sex industry is not allowed an opinion, certain rights, or is not a ‘credible’ source of information.
10 Rights That Women Don't Have But Men Do
America is a white supremacist patriarchy. That's the only way that Trump was able to become president. And every day that Trump is in the White House is a day that the set of rights that women don't have but men do have remains unchanged. That means wide spread social ills remain unaddressed. Less pay, less safety, and less representation for women hurts everybody. And in case you were unaware, here are just some of the ways that women are deprived of social equality in the US.
The Rejection of the Individual in Progressive Discussion
On a typical day in 2018, the average person may be found doing the following: Over-watering their succulents, taking a questionable number of pictures of their cat, messaging their loved ones, worrying about their student loans, or partaking in a mutual debate with another person over the erratic state of current politics.
Femaleconomics and Politics in the Middle East
The role of women in the Middle East has long been a talking point among politicians, activists, men, and, of course, women in the West. Women's inability to drive in Saudi Arabia coupled with astronomically high female unemployment across the region due to political and social restrictions has been met with ire from countries that delve inward and question why the situation has not radically changed in the 21st century. Many hurry to crucify Islam for the sins of the Middle East and oftentimes gloss over socio-political variables that shaped the landscape of the region throughout history.
The Truth About Late-Term Abortions
I decided to write about abortion, not because I have any information that’s not already out there, or because I have a particularly unique angle on it. But there is a problem with how politicians and the media characterise late-term abortions and use it to demonise women and doctors, when it hardly makes a difference to the overall numbers, and is the worst possible demographic to go after. The facts are out there, but we so rarely hear about them – almost certainly because we prefer emotion over evidence – and the facts tell a heartbreaking truth in this case.
