How did this happen? How did anti-choice politicians chip away at our rights state by state? These infographics tell the story.
The good news? We have the power to change this. Want to take action? Tell these politicians: you don't represent my values.
While all of us who support reproductive freedom faced tremendous challenges in 2014, it wasn't all bad news. These were a few of the inspiring moments that are going to fuel our fire well into 2015.
2014 has been a great year for smart, diverse, interesting (and funny!) feminist literature. Even if you have a die-hard, pro-choice, feminist friend who has read everything from Betty Friedan to bell hooks; they’ll appreciate reading these fresh thoughts and insights on feminist theory, reproductive freedom and women’s issues.
It’s the holiday season, and you know what that means – it’s the season to give gifts! Not sure what to get that special someone in your life who’s passionate about reproductive freedom and feminism? We’ve got you covered.
It’s 2014 and women in the workforce are making huge gains, contributing more to their families’ incomes, and reaching positions of authority. So are women getting the support they need to have families? Not from their bosses they aren’t.

What had us chanting and dancing in the snowfall for hours? Our “Not My Boss’s Business” rally outside of the Supreme Court! We rallied outside while justices heard oral arguments for a case that would give bosses the right to deny their employees birth control coverage just because they oppose it. We can’t imagine what it would be like for a boss to get to impose his religious views on his workers – and neither could the hundreds of people who joined us in D.C. Some had amazingly creative ways of getting their message across. Check out our 12 favorite signs from the rally:
Who doesn’t look back on the early 2000s with nostalgia and immense gratitude that those late 90s-early 2000s butterfly hair clips are no longer in style? There were so many teen idols and pop sensations it was hard to keep track of them all. Here are some of our favorite pop stars from the last decade that you maybe didn’t realize are also pro-choice!
