Culture change is distinct from policy change and health-care access, but it’s just as important. It’s difficult to imagine long-term policy gains without doing the hard work to change norms, beliefs, and behavior.

Political Scene: Elizabeth Warren's Influence

Greg Russak's curator insight, April 19, 7:05 PM

But it’s undeniable that Warren is changing the Senate and, by extension, the country. “Left-wing populism is on the rise, and right-wing populism has been losing a fair amount of ground,” Lepore says of recent political trends. Moreover, she continues, “If the momentum is on Warren’s side, then everything shifts left.”

Party Recon's comment, April 29, 4:31 PM
I love Liz Warren and wish her the best in bringing the Democratic Party back to its roots as the party of the people. I would also love to see her debate Hillary Clinton, especially when it came to Wall Street. Hillary took $400,000 last fall from Goldman Sachs and, in return, delivered the infamous, "Banker Bashing is Bad" speech. Meanwhile, Warren seems to be the only one rallying people to the cause of re-regulating The Street and holding it accountable for the mischief that crashed the economy in '08, much of which continues today.
Greg Russak's comment, April 29, 8:00 PM
I'd like to see that debate, too

Want To Win The War On Poverty? Rebuild The Labor Movement

Want To Win The War On Poverty?  Rebuild The Labor Movement | Dare To Be A Feminist | Scoop.it
When conservative Ohio Governor and former Lehman Brothers executive John Kasich feels compelled to remind his fellow conservatives that upon entering Heaven, “Saint Peter is probably not going to ask you much about what you did about keeping government small. But he is going to ask you what you did for the poor,” you know poverty has reached center stage.

From the homilies of Pope Francis, to New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio's (pictured) inauguration speech, poverty and its close cousin inequality are playing starring roles in the current political discourse. The President’s 2015 budget proposal, released earlier this month, calls for a significant increase in federal spending on anti-poverty programs, and while these proposals are likely DOA in the Republican-controlled House, Democrats across the land have promised to campaign on the issue leading up to the 2014 midterm races. This year, then, appears little different from much of 2013: the spotlight on poverty shows no sign of dimming.

Deanna Dahlsad's insight:

Not necessarily all feminist; but unions have their place in feminism and other battles of equality -- and unions are the way to cease this war on the masses.

Del. Mark Cole's legislative aide said he is not planning on introducing the ERA legislation to be heard in the House committee effectively stopping progress on the ERA bill for Virginians and for our nation. This is unacceptable! We need to call and to keep calling Del. Cole and Speaker Howell. Ask them to allow a vote on the ERA bill HJ 12. The Virginia Senate bill passed with bi-partisan support 25-8. 

Tell your friends across this nation to call NOW!!!! One man has chosen to stop the path for economic stability for all women in the United States. Remind Delegate Cole and Speaker Howell that the number one issue for women is economic equality and women all across the nation are watching Virginia!

The Real Reason Evangelical Christians Are Trying to Thwart Women's Right to Birth Control

The Real Reason Evangelical Christians Are Trying to Thwart Women's Right to Birth Control | Dare To Be A Feminist | Scoop.it
By ROB SHRYOCK

When did politics enter the evangelical birth control debate?


"... a 1968 document produced at an evangelical conference co-sponsored by Christianity Today and the Christian Medical and Dental Association that said, “Whether the performance of an induced abortion is sinful we are not agreed, but about the necessity of it and permissibility for it under certain circumstances we are in accord. … When principles conflict, the preservation of fetal life ... may have to be abandoned to maintain full and secure family life."

The Horrifying Women's Rights Injustice That Modern Feminism Forgot Mic Such an infuriating issue should attract the ire of the feminist community, but so far there are mostly crickets.


Recent legislation regarding the forced sterilizations performed on incarcerated women in California prisons evokes a muted time in U.S. history when sexist, racist, classist and ableist eugenics policies were orchestrated by the state.
