Take Action To Save Birth Control Coverage

Trump’s Global Gag Shows Total Disregard for Women’s Lives

Initially known as the “Mexico City Policy,” the Global Gag Rule was reinstated and expanded just days after President Trump was sworn into office.

Texas Maternal Mortality Rate Skyrockets While State Government Fails to Help

A disturbing statistic has become a major talking point in Texas political campaigns this election cycle. From state house races to the fight for Ted Cruz’s senate seat, candidates are making maternal mortality a component of every healthcare discussion, and it’s a conversation that’s seriously needed.

I’m Heartbroken, but Standing Strong

We at the Feminist Majority have watched with heavy hearts the events that have unfolded over the last week, first in Charlottesville, and then in the President’s shameful and dangerous response, especially at Tuesday’s press conference.
