That's what we do at Ms. We have been reporting on the battles for abortion rights since our launch 50 years ago in 1972. And for each of these 50 years, Ms. has been on the frontlines, spotlighting strategies for moving forward in the fight for full equality.
You more than most, because of your deep commitment to women’s rights and equality, will understand and appreciate the urgent nature of this e-mail.
Our Partners make it possible for Ms. to keep our readers informed, both in print and online at the very moment equality, women’s rights and democracy itself are under assault by the far-right hell bent on imposing their distorted beliefs on the rest of us.
Ms. started a powerful strategy in the abortion rights fight
Ms. covers the news and makes it; reports on trends and helps make them. In its 1972 debut issue, Ms. ran a bold petition in which 53 well-known U.S. women called for an end to laws prohibiting abortion and declared “We Have Had an Abortion” – despite laws in most states rendering the procedure illegal.
The Washington Post credited the petition with the “start of a powerful strategy in the U.S. abortion rights movement: ending the secrecy that had kept many women out of the fight.”
The ERA is the ultimate insurance policy – a permanent guard against the whims of the Court and of a future right-wing majority in Congress.
Ms. is closely tracking and reporting on efforts to ensure the ERA is finally added to the U.S. Constitution as the 28th Amendment. Although all the requirements set out in the Constitution for an amendment have been met, the final certification of the ERA has been blocked by Senate Republicans wielding the filibuster to prevent a vote by the Senate.
