As a Christian clergy who celebrates all the spiritual paths that lead to Love; as a woman who was unable to conceive and who grieved for years; as an aunt and grandmother who thinks children are precious, I am #ProChoice AND #ProLife
There is more than one religion practiced in this nation and no religious point of view should guide our legal processes. In fact Jesus, who is the mentor for my Christian faith, healed a woman suffering with a reproductive issue—a hemorrhaging womb—for twelve years #WomensRights
Jesus' model of compassion and love for those on the margins and those needing healing and health care drives my commitment to health care for all, and my pro-choice position. #WomensRights #ReproductiveRights #LoveTransforms

@womensmarch Since you're still lying about women's concerns about the #EqualityAct, let me clarify: As currently written, Equality Act guts women's sex-based protections by redefining sex to include sex stereotypes, "mannerisms," and gender identity (aka "sex stereotypes 2.0").
@womensmarch When the law can't "see" sex--like when #EqualityAct equates sex, gender identity, sex stereotypes, and mannerisms--the law can't be used to fight sexism. What feminists are asking is that the law protect transgender people AS transgender people, AND protect women as a sex class
@womensmarch This is, FYI, what so-called "TERFs" get tarred and feathered for saying: We want trans people to be protected from violence, discrimination, and harassment. We also know that sex matters. We want to protect the rights of women and girls, too.

#Alabama, #Ohio, #Missouri, and #Georgia have begun the @GOP's orchestrated attack on women with restrictive abortion laws.

Make NO mistake this is NOT about protecting life. It is a hostile GOP and their #WarOnWomen restricting #WomensReproductiveRights and #WomensHealth.
Highly restrictive abortion laws are not associated with lower abortion rates! Whether legal or prohibited the number of abortions taking place remains relatively unchanged. Highly restrictive abortion laws simply prevent SAFE abortions.
In countries where abortion is completely banned or permitted only to save the woman’s life or preserve her physical health, only 1 in 4 abortions were safe; whereas, in countries where abortion is legal on broader grounds, nearly 9 in 10 abortions were done safely.

Thread. Long: I'm feeling a profound sadness. A deep sadness. One that is inhabiting my very core. Why? I've lived long enough to know what life was like before women won their necessary & long overdue rights. Trust me when I say that April 17, 1982 was a day filled with
boundless joy for women all over #Canada. Our rights were enshrined into our Charter of Rights & Freedoms on that day. It was a very long road from being legally considered “persons” to finally being treated – at least on paper – as equals under the law.

Now I'm seeing our very
hard won rights under attack. Particularly our right to a safe, medical abortion. What's stunning about the anti abortion laws being passed in states like #Alabama is the total lack of understanding about why an abortion is performed. The medical reasons include problems with the

If you are in NYC I highly recommend this show. It talks about the very personal ways the Constitution has affected one woman and the other women in her family. We all need to be thinking about who is interpreting the constitution. #WomensRights #Choice stitcher.com/podcast/wnyc/n…
The conservative majority on the Supreme Court are now ALL men, from ONE faction, of ONE denomination of ONE religion.
Fun fact. The night I went @HillaryClinton was in the audience.

Why does the House Democratic leadership continue to enable @IlhanMN @RashidaTlaib normalizing #Islam and paint them as some kind of "#womensrights" crusaders?

#FACTSMATTER: Islam teaches that a woman is worth less than a man. #ShariaLaw #ProveMeWrong

Today is #InternationalWomensDay. Please remember the brave women suffering in #China-Occupied #EastTurkistan. They’re facing tremendous abuses at the hands of Chinese occupation forces. There, these ethnically-Turkic women are being forced to marry Han Chinese men. Many…
… have been thrown into prisons, #ConcentrationCamps, & Bingtuan #LaborCamps., where they face brainwashing, beatings, torture, rape, forced abortions, & involuntary medication. The mothers amongst them have had their beautiful children thrown into Chinese state-run orphanages…
… & of those who’ve survived, many are unsure about the whereabouts of their husbands, children, & other loved ones.

I support #IndependenceForEastTurkistan in part because I support #WomensRights… & the rights of all people to Life, Liberty, & the pursuit of Happiness.

Hypathia was a philosopher, astronomer, and mathematician, who lived in the 4th century BC in Alexandria. The first documented woman mathematician, she may have been the first "witch" to have been executed because of her intellectual endeavor. #WomenInSTEM bbvaopenmind.com/en/science/mat…
Maria Gaetana Agnesi was a mathematician, philosopher, theologian, and humanitarian, who lived in Milan in the 18th century.

The level of the debates in France regarding French Muslim women, part 878678678678. Sportswear brand Decathlon decided to release a sport headscarf gear (basically a sort of hood/Cap) so that hijabi women can practice sport and be comfortable. #ReligiousFreedom
Of course, this led to a big outcry on how Decathlon is condoning so called women oppression and radical Islam (usual arguments). The Minister of Health declared that such a vision is contrary to the French values.
None of this surprises me. Back in 2016, then Minister of Women’s Rights, Families and Childhood compared women who willingly wear the Islamic headscarf to “American n****** who accepted slavery” and described Islamic fashion as “irresponsible”.

Yes #SmashBrahmanicalPatriarchy and every other kind of patriarchy, misogyny & #sexism regardless of the caste, class, race or religion that habits it. And they all do. But this poster #JackDorsey held was interesting for a number of reasons which I will discuss in this thread.
2/ Firstly, the picture on this poster of a #Dalit woman, reinforces upper-caste, discriminatory, caste stereotypes that holds that the lower caste are dark skinned with Afroid hair & facial features. We all know this untrue. There is no way you can identify caste by color!
3/ In fact it is this kind of stereotype about what Dalit women look like and do, which Jack's poster reinforces, that Dalit women in India have been fighting. #jackinindia

THREAD (PART 3 of 4): Why you shouldn’t trust @QuilliamOrg ‘s report on #groominggangs & the claim that 84% of “grooming gang offenders” are Asian. An evidence-based critique. 1/
It ignores well-known biases in crime data, such as whether victims disclose (‘self-selection bias’), whether reports are investigated/prosecuted (‘institutional bias’) & whether convictions make the news (‘media bias’) 2/
If using news sources, it's a big mistake to overlook #mediabias – especially as coverage of “grooming gangs” has been very racialised. Crimes involving sex, children & race ‘sell' & stories fitting an established narrative tend to get more coverage. (bit.ly/2q7WLKq) 3/

As the Iranian regime suffers from instability and is beset by social protests and discontent, it is essential that we support the Iranian pp & #Iranprotesters!

We must demand @SenateDems, @SenSchumer use #NoQuorum to delay #SCOTUS confirm. hearings.
Why?
> @WhiteHouse is witholding 100K pages on Kavanaugh's time in Bush WH. What are they hiding?
> New guilty plea in #Mueller probe 8/31. We must block confirmation b4 probe is complete.
How to fight this...
1. Call AND write yr senators every day, whether Republicans or Dems. Ask others to do the same. Demand there be no confirmation hearings before we see where the criminal probe of @realdonaldtrump leads.

call 202-224-3121 or text resist to 50409 - it's easy
2. Write a letter to the editor of your local newspaper voicing your opposition to Kavanaugh and explain your reasons why,
incl the new information about indictments in the ongoing criminal probe
AND
the failure to release pertinent Kavanaugh files

While we wait for #HELSINKI2018 to finish, here's a couple of remarks inspired by the #TrumpPutin meeting.
1. Finland is not a neutral country. We chose our side when we joined European Union in 1995. Finland chose to be on the side of #humanrights, #democracy, #ruleoflaw and multilateral world order. Finnish foreign policy is based on promoting and defending these values.
2. Women's rights are human rights. We believe the world would be a better place for everyone if #WomensRights and girls' rights would be recognised and respected all around the world.

Time to talk about women's reproductive health and dispel a few myths. I'm not one for long threads, so bear with me here. I have a lot of thoughts on this.

The main thing I think gets lost in partisan rhetoric is that we ALL want there to be fewer abortions. But how?
#RoeVWade
2) Let's start with a universal truth.

🔥Making abortions illegal does not make them less common.🔥

Ever.

#LegalSafeRare

dailykos.com/stories/2018/3… Abortion rates are not lower in places where it is illegal.
3)
Just in case you thought this was an American phenomena.

It's not.

Other countries have learned the hard way that punitive measures don't work.
#RoevWade

economist.com/international/… Abortion is as common in countries where it is illegal as it is where it is legal.

Opinion | What the Supreme Court battle suggests about culture wars - by Jennifer Ruben
wapo.st/2lOT4aa
#Women #WomensRights #Democrats #progressives #liberals #UniteBlue #BlueWave
"[] the debate surrounding the nomination has reminded us the degree to which social conservatives have lost on key cultural issues. The only way they reverse those defeats is by guaranteeing a Supreme Court majority at odds with the sentiments of voters."
"That creates a unique problem for Republicans, and an unexpected opportunity for Democrats."

How gender identity politics is endangering #WomensRights masquerading under the guise of “progressivism”- or in other words, as I said to this @notokyriarchy fatherfucker, an #MRA’s dream come true
- (thread)
I shouldn’t have to explain the realities of sex-based oppression in 2018! #Female is a biological sex. #Gender is the roles and norms that are imposed on those with female bodies to subjugate them to males for free sexual, domestic, and reproductive labor.
No matter how many genders a given culture had or recognized, somehow, the half of the group with a cock and balls (males) knew which other half of the group to forcibly impregnate (“#NonMen”, according to some). 🤔🤔🤔
