Hobby Lobby isn't over. It's time for us to fight harder than ever. Ditch the Dirty 100!
One hundred entities believe that they shouldn’t have to follow the contraception mandate in the Affordable Care Act. Stand with NOW and tell them that it is not acceptable for employers to impose their personal beliefs on their employees.

I am not a supporter of Hobby Lobby, but how are they imposing their beliefs on others?  I would think a law MANDATING an action id more imposing that not wanting to pay for it.

Is Hobby Lobby using their win to tell their employees they CANNOT get the services on their own?

In the midst of SCOTUS outlawing buffer zones around abortion clinics, the new Peace Corps amendment on abortion coverage for volunteers seemed promising, but how effective will it really be for women? My guess is not very.

HEY SCOTUS - DROP YOUR ZONE! Take our action, below!

Anti-abortion terrorists have murdered seven people since 1993. They've committed at least 200 arsons and bombings since the mid-1970s. They've plagued clinics with anthrax threats and butyric acid attacks. The very real threat of shootings, arsons, bombings, and chemical attacks hangs over the decision to enter an abortion clinic for both patients and employees.

Clinics should not have to wait until terrorists strike to have access to basic protections like buffer zones. Clinic violence is almost inevitable, but the Supreme Court's decision in McCullen v Coakley strips abortion providers of the ability to take preemptive measures to protect themselves and their patients.

SCOTUS has made their ruling; now let them enforce it.

The St. Louis Post listened to women and dropped George Will for his absurd column on sexual assault, but the Washington Post is still standing by him. Take our action and sign the petition to get WP to fire George Will!

We are likely to get a decision on Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby next week. If SCOTUS finds in Hobby Lobby’s favor, a boss could deny insurance coverage of contraception to female employees if said boss believes contraception goes against their religion. Check out our blog post to educate yourself on the issues and learn what you can do to stop the Dirty 100!

On March 24th at 3:00 PM EST, join Terry O'Neill of NOW and other experts to see what’s at stake in the Hobby Lobby case, what will be happening in DC on March 25th, and how you can support these efforts!
On March 25th, activists and politicians will gather in front of the Supreme Court as it takes up two challenges to Obamacare's contraception coverage mandate, which could have a critical impact on access to reproductive health care. The day before, Feministing brings you direct access to action across the country via a Pre-Rally Hangout On Air. Hear from advocates and experts on what to expect on March 25th and beyond.

Marissa Alexander was given a 20 year sentence for firing a non-lethal warning shot at her ex-husband, moments after he choked her and just days after giving birth. 

State Attorney Angela Corey prosecuted her anyway. The appeals court has overturned Alexander's conviction -- and now Corey wants a 60 year sentence against her.

This isn't the first time State Attorney Angela Corey has misused her power. She needs to go!
