"Feminists Against Borders" by UK Feminist Fight Back

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.

No Bernie, There’s No Economic Justice Without Abortion Access

On Thursday, Senator Bernie Sanders flew to Nebraska to campaign for Health Mello, a Democrat running for Mayor of Omaha. The stop is part of Bernie’s “Unity Tour” with Democratic National Committee Chair Tom Perez — the beginning of a national effort to rebuild and unite Democrats around a shared vision for the party’s future.

Prison That Forces Inmates to Give Birth in Shackles Being Sued

Last week, a former inmate of Milwaukee County filed a lawsuit alleging that multiple pregnant people were forced to give birth in shackles while being held there. This comes on the heels of another lawsuit against the jail in December of 2016, when a newborn baby died shortly after birth. Feministing has covered this issue for years, yet little has changed – our justice system is still actively abusing inmates and claiming it’s for our protection.

Abortion Organizations In the South Need Your Support More Than Ever

Fighting Texas’s Anti-Abortion Burial and Cremation Law With Art and Used Tampons

In a year chock full of attacks on reproductive rights, Texas’s House Bill 201 may get the award for The Worst of the Worst. This charming regulation mandates that all “fetal remains” from abortion and miscarriage at medical facilities be buried or cremated.
