Terry O’Neill has been arrested fighting for immigration reform that respects women & families - National Organization for Women (NOW) | Facebook | Dare To Be A Feminist | Scoop.it

For the second time, President Terry O’Neill has been arrested while participating in an act of civil disobedience on behalf of immigration reform that is s fair for women.


Our current immigration system flat out fails women by denying them equal opportunity. Women and children constitute three-quarters of all immigrants -- women alone make up 51% -- and yet only 25% of work visas are given to women. And the proposals floating around Congress will only make the situation worse.

5 Online Tools For Activists, By Activists

5 Online Tools For Activists, By Activists | Dare To Be A Feminist | Scoop.it

Why are social networks powerful tools for causes and campaigns? Many times, people begin to engage in activism only after they’ve been attracted by the fun stuff in a campaign — connecting with old friends and sharing photos, for example.
