It would also be the second time this year a state enacts the most restrictive abortion ban in the nation.The bill looks to criminalize abortion providers who offer the procedure after a fetal heartbeat is detected, which often happens around six weeks of gestat...

Wearing Prints Brought Me Closer To My Mother & The Real Me

I grew up in the South — North Carolina to be exact – but I never exactly fit the stereotype of a Southern Belle. From an early age, I owned too much black for that. But I did own my fair share of clothing that could be described as the "southern look": think floral tops, cowboy boots, belts, flannel shirts, and jean shorts. But, primarily, think mid-length printed dresses paired with my previously mentioned cowboy boots to football games and class, with pumps to church and brunch, and with st...

When Will Midterm Election Results Come In? Here's When Polls Close

Tuesday marks the end of perhaps the most consequential midterm election in recent history. To summarize: A record number of women are running for office, plenty of candidates could make history, people participated in early voting at a rate that outpaced previous midterm elections, and Democrats have a chance at flipping the U.S. House of Representatives. It's, well, a lot.That means that the entire nation will be watching Tuesday night to figure out the results. But since all good things come...

Susan Collins & How White Women Keep Selling Us All Out

After much conjecture from the general public on if the Senate would confirm him, the vote fell to a few “swing” senators, including Susan Collins, a Republican from Maine who decided to draw out her decision as long as possi...

How Difficult Is It To Get An Abortion? Here Are The Laws For Every State.

Trump became the first sitting president to appear at the march, committing to his promise “to build a society where life is celebrated, protected, and cherished" — in other words, to make America a place where a woman's right to choose no longer exists.Although critics will argue Trum...
