The Feministing Five: Meg Elison

Author Meg Elison’s debut novel The Book of the Unnamed Midwife explores a grim apocalyptic future in which a quick thinking and fiery woman survives a plague that wipes out most of humankind in weeks, leaving one female survivor for every ten men. Most of the women that are left become little more than sexual property, and are largely unable to survive childbirth.

The Feministing Five: Piyali Bhattacharya

The first time I ever saw a South Asian woman represented in mainstream media was when Mindy Kaling played the utterly ridiculous yet somehow loveable Kelly Kapoor on The Office in the mid-2000s.

The Feministing Five: Mary Mahoney & Lauren Mitchell of The Doula Project

In 2007,  New York City-based reproductive justice activists Mary Mahoney and Lauren Mitchell founded The Doula Project, the first full spectrum doula organization that supports people across the spectrum of pregnancy outcomes. Based upon the idea that everyone deserves nonjudgmental, compassionate physical and emotional support for abortions and beyond, The Doula Project is a volunteer-run, collectively-led organization of over fifty doulas whose backgrounds range from activism, to social work, to health professionals.

Almost ten years later, The Doula Project has changed the way we think about doula work and the links between activism and direct service, as well as inspired doulas across the country to start their own collectives.
