Millennial Voices: Dear Mr.Politician

April 30, 2019

By: Dee Gillingham 

 

Dear Mr.Politician,


It’s 2019 and women still aren’t guaranteed the unalienable right to make decisions for themselves, for their own bodies. What is so hard about acknowledging basic medical needs and moral equality for women? Do old, unruly male lawmakers wake up every morning and think to themselves, “What am I going to do today to make a woman’s life just a little bit harder?”

Millennial Voices: Being An Ally

March 18, 2019
