  • Reuters: "Super Bowl a magnet for under-age sex trade."
  • MSNBC: "New breastfeeding law could help mothers nursing at work."
  • Think Progress: "Rep. Wasserman Schultz: Bill Redefining Rape To Prevent Abortions Is 'A Violent Act Against Women.'" However, read the following ...
  • Huffington Post: "House Republicans Drop 'Forcible Rape' Language From Abortion Bill." And again, read the following ...
  • Feministe: "New bill will let doctors refuse to save the lives of pregnant women."
  • Men's Health: "The F Word: An Introduction." So, Men's Health has a feminist blogger. Very interested to see where this goes.
  • The Baltimore Sun: "Judge rules pregnancy center ordinance unconstitutional." Sigh.
  • NPR: "Longest-Serving Woman Senator Looks After The Rest." This is about Sen. Barbara Mikulski, who has been in the Senate since 1986.
  • Wall Street Journal: "Toshiba Accused of Gender Discrimination in U.S."
  • Feministing: "The Struggle for Transgender and Genderqueer Legitimacy."
  • Feministing: "Illinois becomes 6th state to allow civil unions for same-sex couples."
  • And speaking of Feministing, Jessica Valenti (founder of the site), has stepped down. You can read her post about it here.
  • New York Times: "Officials Consider Requiring Insurers to Offer Free Contraceptives."
  • The Advocate: "Iowa House Votes For Marriage Ban." On this topic, be sure to check out this video, if you haven't seen it yet: from AOL News, "Zach Wahls' Iowa Speech for Gay Marriage Goes Viral."
  • AlterNet: "9 New Laws in the GOP's War Against Women."
  • New York Magazine: "They Know What Boys Want." This is part of a series about porn, and this story talks to girls in junior high school and what they hear from boys their age. I found it quite sad.
  • The Guardian: "Research shows male writers still dominate books world." Not on my bookshelves they don't!
  • Feministe: "Standing with Planned Parenthood."
