"Four Oregon lawmakers Thursday introduced the Comprehensive Women’s Health Bill, intended to ensure access to affordable, full-spectrum reproductive health care for every woman and transgender man in the state. The bill, if passed, would make Oregon the first state in the nation to ensure every state resident is covered for every type of reproductive health care, including abortion, under all forms of insurance."

"In addition to producing new episodes of Tropes vs. Women in Video Games, Feminist Frequency is planning to begin two new video series: one that examines 'the representation of men and masculinity in video games' and a miniseries that presents 'examples of positive female characters in video games.'"
Anita Sarkeesian has had an incredibly momentous 2014, to put it extremely mildly, and it's looking like 2015 will be even bigger. Her nonprofit group, Feminist Frequency, has released its first...

This is great +Melissa Peterson I look forward to seeing what her and some of the other ladies will do in the next few years. There are more women gamers than men right now, hence the whole #gmaergate  thing.

Infections spread with well-understood mathematical patterns. Planets respond to changes in atmospheric composition via the laws of physics and chemistry. They do this in spite of who we vote for. They do this in spite of our political or social beliefs about right and wrong, good and bad.

The world, in other words, has its own ways. Denial can't change that. But what the Disneyland outbreak makes clear is that science denial has consequences. That is the real news here. The anti-vax and climate "skeptic" strains of science denial have been with us for more than a decade. Until now, however, it's all seemed a bit theoretical, like just another forum for Internet hate-festing (which we shall all see soon in the comment sections of this post). But now along comes an outbreak of a once-beaten disease and — surprise — we suddenly see that science denial has actual real world consequences, because its about the actual real world (the one we humans invented science to describe).
Adam Frank says the Disneyland measles outbreak is a wake-up call; the assumption that if you disagree with certain established scientific results you can just ignore them will have consequences.

"In December 1972, concerned that people were consuming larger and larger quantities of vitamins, the F.D.A. announced a plan to regulate vitamin supplements containing more than 150 percent of the recommended daily allowance. Vitamin makers would now have to prove that these 'megavitamins' were safe before selling them. Not surprisingly, the vitamin industry saw this as a threat, and set out to destroy the bill. In the end, it did far more than that."
When it comes to antioxidants, more is not always better.

There are only 24 hours to a day for each and every one of us. So if you have to dedicate time each and every day to fight for your right to exist in a space or industry, or spend time fighting off harassment or threats and reporting them, then that is time you cannot spend on honing your skills. That is time you cannot spend asking your mentors for advice or trying out a new programming language.

This is how the system is rigged: by making it harder for the disenfranchised to rise up and join the privileged on an equal level, it actively tries to maintain and widen the gap between the demographics.
