  • Hey Feministing Community,
    I just wanted to turn you on to the drama that’s happening in Ohio. University of Toledo is ending it’s relationship with area abortion clinics. They’re using sneaky loophole bureaucracy to shut these clinics down. Please read more about our petition here:

    I’m also a little surprised that people are getting their knickers in a twist over this.

    All of those were painful to read, but I’m glad I did. My older sister has been a Marine for nearly 20 years and although she’s a tough lady, I know she fights hard to been treated equally in a “man’s man” world. I say good luck to those women who struggle even harder just [...]
