John Kelly, Jane Doe, and Sacred White Womanhood

This past week has proven, yet again, that Republicans’ purported concern for the “sacredness of life” doesn’t actually extend to people of color, immigrants, or poor people. It’s also shown how far some liberal feminists still have to go in understanding just how central patriarchal rhetoric and policies are to U.S. foreign and domestic policy.

In the wake of the Trump administration’s recent decision to remove co-pay free birth control from the Affordable Care Act and the Senate’s imminent vote on a 20-week abortion ban, media coverage has highlighted data on the relationship between access to contraception and abortion rates. Articles with headlines like “Trump Contraception Move Could Lead to More Abortions” and “Donald Trump’s Coming Abortion Surge” have pointed out that increased contraception use tends to lead to a decrease in abortions.

U.S. Men’s Soccer Proves That Mediocre Men Will Still Earn More Than Successful Women

Last week, the United States’ men’s soccer team lost 2-1 in a World Cup Qualifier to Trinidad and Tobago, the only team below them in the group standings, sending them crashing out of the Men’s World Cup for the first time since 1986 in what some are calling “the worst loss in the history of U.S. Men’s Soccer.” It seems a good a time as any to remember that it was only in April this year that the U.S. women’s too, lost an important fight: the battle to gain equal pay with the men’s team.
