5 Meaningful Ways to Fight for Reproductive Rights in 2018

By the end of 2017, many had declared it the year of women.

As 2017 draws to a close, people are offering mixed reactions to the chaotic events of the past year. Where notably white and wealthy popstar Taylor Swift “couldn’t have asked for a better year,” according to Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards, few other women would share that sentiment with regard to what she acknowledges “may be the worst year for women than in any other presidential administration in history.”

Trump’s Department of Justice Moves to Investigate Planned Parenthood

News of the DOJ investigating Planned Parenthood is concerning, as it’s no secret how hostile the Trump administration, which earlier this year signed a bill allowing states to block federal funding for Planned Parenthood, is toward the organization. The consequences of this could be widely felt—not just by women, but by everyone if researchers lose access to fetal tissue, which, among other things, historically made a cure for polio possible.

“My Body, My Life” Exhibition Confronts the Often Overlooked Realities of Abortion

Last week, Buzzfeed reported on a new, Oxford-based exhibition, “My Body My Life,” that does what lawmakers across the world consistently refuse to do: let women who have had abortions share their voices about the issues.
