Women's lives are being threatened. Women's rights are being ignored. Take action now & tell Obama: rape survivors globally have the right to healthcare. With the stroke of a pen, President Obama can clarify that U.S.-funded health clinics around the world can provide safe abortions to women who've been raped, who are survivors of incest, or whose lives would be threatened by carrying the pregnancy to term. 

It's #TimeToAct. Sign & share the petition to #breakbarriers for women & girls.

Amazing Nigerian artist Sokari Douglas Camp chose "Red" as her theme as our latest guest curator for Curating Change:

"Red makes me think of blood. Blood pumps through our hearts, and fuels the love women invest in their communities and families. Blood seeps out our wounds, created through centuries of violence against women’s bodies and spirits." 

Explore her selections and insights on Red, and tell us what you think.
