Maria Hinojosa: We’re very excited to introduce regular check-ins with the host of Latino USA this week! Maria will share her thoughts on the big push on Capitol Hill for immigration reform. While the bills are getting drafted, cases of unlawful raids and racial profiling continue to create distrust of law enforcement in the communities the bills will most likely affect.
Finally Leaning In: FemWeds on the AMp has not touched Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg’s gender management book, Lean In, because well, we’re too busy actually doing it. Writer Emily Heist Moss, who blogs at RosieSays, has our skeptic’s review.
The Council of Feminist Thought: We’ve got writer Veronica Arreola and abstinence teacher Moises Pacheco at the table this week and we’re pretty excited to let the discourse fly when talking about emergency contraception being sold over the counter, Margaret Thatcher’s troubling feminist legacy, the well-meaning babes of FEMEN, and the #SchimmelShow bringing Rez Ball to the NCAA women’s tournament.
Tomorrow for Feminist Wednesday we will be talking with Gaylon Alcaraz, Executive Director of the Chicago Abortion Fund, about widening the conversation surrounding reproductive rights to the comprehensive, historical, and revolutionary vision of the reproductive justice movement.
