Most Of Virginia’s Abortion Clinics Could Close Today

Today's Lady News photo
  • Twenty of 22 abortion clinics in Virginia could close today if the state’s Board of Health votes to impose medically unnecessary restrictions on them. Specifically, the clinics would be required to adopt rules that hospitals do, such as providing as many beds as there are parking spaces in the lot. Real important, right? Clever job at restricting abortion rights, VA! [Mother Jones]
  • Feminista and Bling author Erica Kennedy has died. We spoke with Erica about her books in 2009 and were sad to hear of her early passing. Our thoughts go out to her friends and family. [Twitter]
  • A petition on Change.org by a young Native American woman is lobbying the Indian Health Services to make Plan B/the morning-after pill available on reservations. Sunny Clifford lives on a reservation in South Dakota and was told when she needed Plan B that she would have to drive to a clinic one hour away. [Change.org]
  • China suspended three family planning officials for forcing a 23-year-old woman to have an abortion seven months into her pregnancy when she could not pay a $6,300 fine for violating the country’s one-child policy. Freedom of choice goes both ways, China. [New York Times] Keep reading »

I am going to smack the next idiot who tells me that raising her children full time — by which she really means going to Jivamukti classes and pedicure appointments while the nanny babysits — is her feminist choice.

This is how writer Elizabeth Wurtzel begins a piece on TheAtlantic.com entitled titled “1 Percent Wives Are Helping To Kill Feminism And Make The War On Women Possible.”

You know, subtle.

And it goes downhill from there. Keep reading »

Gretchen Carlson Jokingly Walks Off “Fox & Friends” After Sexist Comment

Today's Lady News photo
  • “Fox & Friends” co-host Gretchen Carlson walked off the set after her co-hosts made sexist comments regarding the U.S. Navy Band now including women. When Brian Kilmeade said, “Women are everywere. We’re letting them play golf and tennis now. It’s out of control,” Gretchen stormed off-camera — albeit with a smile on her face. Good start, Gretchen. But instead of doing this as a joke, we need to get you peacing out for real. [Think Progress]
  • As punishment for speaking out about the anti-abortion “superbill” ekeing its way through Michigan legislature, the male Republican House leader silenced female reps from speaking about the bill. [Think Progress]
  • On how the Olympic Games are obsessed with policing femininity. [Feministing] Keep reading »

Cat Calling Ain't Cool!

You remember Chescaleigh from the “Shit White Girls Say To Black Girls” videos? Of course you do. She’s back, this time with a new video about street harassment in which she plays both the loser with no game “hssssss”-ing her on the street and the woman minding-her-own business who has to deal with his catcalls. “Here’s what I don’t understand,” she says. “Are these guys really so desperate, horny, and insecure about their penis size that they are willing to hit on anything? And I mean anything, because they don’t really seem to discriminate.” Yes, Chescaleigh, they really are. Clearly I need to tell you about the time I was catcalled last summer while wearing a fucking eyepatch. [YouTube]

  • On how Republicans in the House of Representatives are blocking abortion access for our servicewomen. Apparently even if you’re willing to give your life for your own country, that’s not reason enough to get basic women’s health care.
