    100 years ago, 3 years ago: the war on women continues. Virginia police in full riot gear with machine guns showed up at a women's rights protest at the Virginia State Capitol. Hundreds of people were protesting a new amendment that passed that Virginia House that would require women to have an ultrasound before having an abortion. 31 people were arrested.

      I feel quite stupid for asking, but why were they against the ultrasound being done?

      Nevermind, I did some research on it. I had just assumed that the ultrasound was a medically necessary part of the procedure, but apparently it's just an intimidation tactic.

      Yeah, it's so that you realize that the fetus is more important than you and decide, right then, to go through with the pregnancy. I can't believe it's become law in so many states.

      I can't believe it either. I mean, abortion is legal. The point is to give women the freedom of the choice; making these laws to try to get women to change their minds is just ridiculous. It reminds me of a quote I read a while back: "If you can't trust me with a choice, how could you trust me with a baby?"

    Happy Women's Equity Day, pinners! I'm taking today to pin a woman that inspires me and encourage you to do the same. This is not a trained activist, not a public figure, but a woman who took a stand when she saw an anti-abortion protest outside a clinic where women were trying to receive care.

    You should repin the #lastwords campaign by journalist Shirin Barghi, which shows the last recorded words spoken by unarmed African Americans shot by police. Kenneth Chamberlain, a retired marine, was 68 when he accidentally pressed his MedicAlert necklace from his home. Police broke down his door, tasered him twice, then shot him dead. The autopsy showed Kenneth's arms were at his sides. No criminal charges were made against police officers involved and they're still working as officers today.

    This is why the flag offends me. I think Pinterest should really get rid of all of the Confederate DIY. If you agree, repin.

      some people use the flag wrong. the flag is for states rights. it was never ment to be for hate.

      There are many other confederate flags to choose from, ones that haven't been co-opted by racist bigots.

    “I guess if I’d had any sense, I’d have been a little scared – but what was the point of being scared? The only thing they could do was kill me, and it kinda seemed like they’d been trying to do that a little bit at a time since I could remember.” - Spoken by Fannie Lou Hamer, a civil rights leader, on why she put her life in danger when she volunteered to register to vote. An inspiration today for women to become true democratic citizens: protesting, vocal activists who take charge.

    On Oct. 24, 1975, 90% of Icelandic women went on strike, refusing to do any work at their homes or their jobs. It was the largest demonstration in the nation's history. Activism, offline: it works.

    With no water in California (thanks, climate change + water wasting!) there will soon be no cheap fruit and vegetables for the USA. Start your own vegetable garden in unused space on your front lawn, or consider switching from a thirsty grass lawn to a clover lawn. At the very least, you'll be luckier.

    Human overpopulation (10 billion by 2050!) = habitat destruction = frog death = MOSQUITOES + SPIDERS EVERYWHERE. SPIDERPOCALYPSE. Do your part before the summer beings and keep your carbon (frog-destroying) footprint down. Over the next few months before bug season, please, for me, avoid all urges to buy a house in the suburbs on former farm land or forest, choose an electric car over a Hummer, and maybe don't have that third child. Because I hate spiders. I cannot with spiders.

    Before Cheryl Strayed hiked part of the Pacific Crest Trail in California, Robyn Davidson hiked some of the most impossible desert in the world in Australia - at the dawn of second wave feminism, with a small army of camels. Like Strayed, the trip helped Davidson deal with the loss of her mother and family. A must read book, and the 2013 movie adaptation is amazing.
