The Feministing Five: Erin Schrode

For this week’s Feministing Five, I caught up with feminist activist, environmentalist, and aspiring politician Erin Schrode. At 25, the Marin County Democrat ran for Congress in California’s District 2 this month in the hopes of becoming the youngest woman ever elected to the position. Her dynamic campaign focused on human rights, reproductive health, the future of education and work, and harnessed the power of social media to reach thousands.

In the Face of Homophobia and Islamophobia, Queer Touch Persists

After the carnage at Pulse nightclub in Orlando I saw a lot of “love is love” messages from well-meaning straight people. Who do you love? It doesn’t matter! They seem to say. It’s all love!

California is Ending One of Its Most Sexist Welfare Policies
