About

Too many articles have proclaimed, exasperated: Where are young people in the feminist and pro-choice movements?

Look no further.

We are unapologetic activists for reproductive justice.

We are Jewish, Christian, atheist, Muslim, Wiccan, secular. We are mixed race, African-American, Latina, White, bi-racial. We are completing graduate degrees, we didn’t finish high school. We have had abortions, children, miscarriages. We have IUDs and we use rhythm beads. We work in reproductive health and we tweet about being #prochoice. We call ourselves feminists, womanists, womyn, wimmin, grrls, bois, men, women. We are cis gender, we are trans women, we’re straight men, we are gender queer. We have sex with anything that moves, we are abstinent, we are poly amorous.

And we stand against reproductive oppression.

This is our space to talk about what drives, inspires, and challenges us, what renews our passion for reproductive justice, what outrages us, and our ideas to keep the movement going forward. We range from 16 years old to 40, all creatively using new media (along with many other outlets) to change the way we think about and interact with activism.

    This is fantastic! Its’ great that all of you have come to write this blog!! I am a Feminist Witch, I thought it was great that you included the Wiccan thing in there, don’t forget about Pagans and Witches, some Witches aren’t Wiccan. But no matter, keep it up!!!

    Pro-choice people are so ignorant. Abortion= murder
    I’m 13 years old and even I understand that. You’re grown women and don’t get it.

    Yeah, for all of you! I have many daughters. I am frightened for the their future rights. I vote. I never thought I would feel this way in this country, since Roe v. Wade, but now I do. I am so glad you are here!
    Thank you.
