Ride, Romney and #RealVAWA: What We’ve Been Reading

July 27, 2012

“No one on earth — or in space — could have created a more complete heroine than Sally Ride.” – Gloria Steinem

R.I.P Dr. Sally Ride, first female in space. Tons of articles this week paying tribute to an icon, as well as her posthumous coming-out.

The International AIDS conference wraps up today: here’s a piece on the link between family planning and HIV/AIDS.

Why so many unplanned births?

Alicia Keys gets political: And she supports Obama.

Speaking of the election, A great mash-up of Mitt’s several conflicting comments about abortion over the years.

Michigan Senate committee approves a sweeping abortion-related bill.

Call your legislators TODAY and let them know that it’s time to pass the REAL VAWA.

After a documentary about female weightlifters aired in Britain, Zoe Smith received some misogynistic tweets. Her blog response is definitely worth a read (h/t feministe). The Olympics start tonight.
