But I’ll try anyway… First long term study of women’s feelings about abortion say that five years after the procedure, 99% of women still say it was the right decision, and…

    Bad Chart Thursday: Egalitarianism vs. Feminism

    Did you know that egalitarianism and feminism are mutually exclusive? I had no idea until I started encountering people, online and off, who insist that they are not feminists but are egalitarians. The latter term is vague, with multiple connotations depending on the context, but when used in opposition to feminism, it is usually described as a belief in equality…

    Guest Post: Coming Out as Feminist

    Editor’s Note: Today’s post, by Chris (who also blogs at Grounded Parents), was written a while ago about finally coming to terms with the identity “feminist.” ****** I’m tired.

    Sam can’t come to the Internet today. He is busy distracting republicans away from my uterus with a song and dance routine about Jesus and fried rice. Don’t worry he will be back next week. I just needed a few minutes to jump in and ask you a few questions before I run off to Fort Brag for Rock Beyond…

    In May of 2009, I announced that I was pregnant. I announced it here at Skepchick. I announced it on Twitter. I announced it on Facebook. I announced it everywhere. I was pregnant. Three weeks later, I was no longer pregnant. It was heartbreaking. It was soul crushing. It was painful, physically. But it wasn’t out of the ordinary. In…

  • Donate to Help Women’s Rights Activists in Iraq

    The other day, I wrote a post about why women’s rights should be important to skeptics and I mentioned that there might be a way for all of us to help alleviate a desperate situation.
