WOMEN are now targets for special interests that use the influence of their political contributions to impose their religious, economic, and political will. Coffee Party Feminists is a part of the BE THE MEDIA project. It is intended to share evidence of special interest targeting and to report on actions being taken across America to defend and restore women's rights.
