Throughout the United States the inherent rights of women to decide what to do with their own bodies are under attack. Most frequently the attack is targeted at poor women, women of color, and young women. This assault takes many forms; it underlies legislation concerning parental notification and Supreme Court cases concerning a medical procedure which Congress has given the meaningless and misrepresenting name "partial birth abortion." It is glaringly obvious in the initiatives concocted to make abortion, including in the case of rape and incest, illegal and in the refusal by pharmacies to carry emergency contraceptive. Up until the 1970's it even took place through the forced sterilizations of tens of thousands of women of color, disabled women, and even some men.
Even if there were no threatening legal cases or legislation, many women still would not have access to clinics, emergency contraceptives, or funding for either. In South Dakota, the state where a recent attempt to make abortion illegal was defeated by 55% of the voting population in referendum, there is only one clinic which performs abortions and it is only open one day a week. The doctors that staff this clinic are flown in every week from out of state because no in-state doctor is willing to risk their safety. Doctors who offer abortion procedures across the United States , including South Dakota , have received countless threats. Besides this there have also been numerous acts of murder and continual violence at clinics, including bombings and arson.
In the six states bordering South Dakota there are 23 clinics, giving this expansive seven state region a total of 24. This is more than five times less than the number of clinics California , three times less than Florida , and equal to the number of clinics in the state of Washington. Whether or not abortion is legal in South Dakota is purely symbolic; women barely have access.
In order to defend a woman's right to control her own body and to support women lacking resources and access, a new collective has formed within South Dakota: the Uterus Liberation Front (ULF).( continue reading the ULF Mission and Policy StatementCollapse )

Hi everybody! i with my friends are making the first nomber of mediafeminist vodcast.
We are searching for the films there women have roles of hacker, media pirate, and so on.
Most of all we are interesting about not commercial pop films(like Hakers with Angelina Joly and Nirvana),
but underground and non commercial. It will be greate if somebody recomends to us the names
of the films and the last name of directors and put the link where we can download them.
Thanks a lot!

The Shakti Cause aims to create the first working matriarchal state in India. Our goals for this new state, once formed, are to promote education, spirituality, and most of all, female empowerment. We are supporters of human equality, but we are focusing on the importance of women. For the creation of this Shakti state, much work will need to be done.shakticause
