WoLF board member Kara Dansky sat down with Family Policy Alliance as unlikely allies for privacy and the safety of women and girls. Watch their conversation below.
Many of us are shocked, depressed and in crisis today.
Please remember that you are not alone. You have so many sisters working patiently and fiercely for your right to live on your own terms. You have so many foremothers who passed on gifts they would never see to women they nonetheless cared for. Your survival is a victory for all of us.
Our greatest strength as survivors of girlhood and as radical feminists is in the communities we build through our work, the joy and comfort that we find in solidarity. Please be kind to each other. Please support one another. ...
The Obama Administration has officially moved to dismiss our complaint in the case of Women’s Liberation Front v. United States. This is serious business. dojs-motion-to-dismiss

The Women's Liberation Front will be collaborating with Stop Patriarchy on January 22-23 in a counter protest of the annual "March For Life," the anti-abortion rally held every year on the anniversary of the historic Supreme Court decision about abortion known as Roe vs. Wade. Last year, Stop Patriarchy succeeded in stopping this anti-woman march for a time. This year we will make an even bigger impact by joining forces. If you can make it to DC, San Francisco, or Austin, fantastic! If not, counter-protest in your own town!
