    It really wasn’t a sudden decision…it was more of a slow metamorphosis, a sort of evolution in my way of thinking. What stands out most is the recent barrage of lawmakers using controlling women’s bodies as planks in their political platforms. When was the last time a law was proposed that limited men’s ability to [...]

    It’s true. I NEVER wanted to be pro-choice. NEVER. I was raised Catholic, by very conservative parents, and even as I grew older and increasingly left the teachings of the Church and my parents behind, I still held fast to my pro-life beliefs. Even as my latent feminism finally stopped being latent, I continued to be vehemently and [...]

  • Melanie commented on the blog post You didn’t ask, but here are my thoughts on attachment parenting anyway   1 year, 8 months ago · View

    Somali, I do think you’re right. I also think that many previously career-minded/oriented women are turning on to the AP movement as a way to channel their (perhaps latent or unspoken) frustration with suddenly being stay-at-home mothers. But all this whole movement does is pit women against each other…implying that a woman who co-sleeps, babywears, [...]

    Sacrifice your dignity on the altar of eternal beauty, one more treatment and you’ll be just perfect, darling. Lose a couple pounds and then you’ll be just right. All the beauty clichés your mother whispered in your baby ears about skin deep beauty in the eye of the beholder; the beholder is a man and [...]

  • Attachment parenting. The term is everywhere, right? Time magazine’s awful cover story “Are You Mom Enough” seemed to bring the whole debate to a (tasteless, judgemental) head. Can I just tell you how that cover infuriated me? I breastfed my two sons for a year each (due to her illness at birth I was unable [...]

    I stumbled on “This is my Body” facebook page today and thought that all my feministing peeps would dig it! “This Is My Body” is a women’s rights advocacy video created in response to the attacks on women’s health and reproductive rights that have occurred throughout 2012. The video addresses those issues along with abortion, [...]

    Thumbnail The ONLY ABORTION CLINIC IN MISSISSIPPI could be shut down? I read about this yesterday and…I honestly didn’t know how to respond. There are so many things that are problematic about this, let me count the ways… (1) There is only 1 abortion clinic in Mississippi! I repeat, there are ~1,526,057 women in Mississippi but only 1 [...]

  • Femination wrote a new blog post: A woman, travelling….alone? GASP!   2 years, 5 months ago · View

    Every time I tell someone I’m on a solo journey across Asia, they give me a blank stare. It quickly morphs into either a look of pity, concern, and happy to say, sometimes admiration. And every time I wonder how their reaction would be if I were a man. An oil company executive’s Colombian wife, whose husband’s [...]

    I recently discovered the  Hollaback Project , “a movement dedicated to ending street harassment using mobile technology.” Street harassment is a reality women face in varying degrees, depending on where in the world you live. The first time I remember experiencing this I was 11 — I was living in Bogotá, Colombia, at the time, I should clarify. [...]
