April Supreme Court Election Urgent for Fair Maps

On April 4, 2023, we citizens of Wisconsin have a chance to fix the problem of unfair maps. Unfair maps are gerrymandered voting districts that give one Party a structural advantage over the other Party. This is simply wrong, by either Democrats or Republicans. Currently and for the past decade in Wisconsin, unfair voting districts have given Republicans unchallenged majorities in both houses of the Legislature. Wisconsin now has the most gerrymandered voting districts in the nation. https://www.jsonline.com/story/news/politics/2022/12/09/wisconsin-assembly-maps-mo...

All species use the earth's natural resources. But humans are busy overusing nature's abundance and destroying  nature's ...

Say No to 1849

Who may I ask are you, a fifty something year old white male, who walks into a polling place with your MAGA hat on, smiling like you own the world, making decisions that impact women. I find myself studying you. Somehow you don’t ‘look’ particularly intelligent enough to make decisions for me or any other woman. You put our futures and the lives of all women at risk with your ignorance. I am angry at your self-righteousness. I am a mom. I am a mom by choice. I am a mom for choice. I firmly center my belief that women should decide what is best for ourselves, for ...

An Open Letter to My Former Gynecologist

I was a patient of yours. Maybe you remember me. I was in my teens and twenties when you were my doctor. I had Endometriosis and was seeking a hysterectomy or endometrial ablation, either of which would have left me unable to have a child. That was no big deal to me, but it was to you. You patronized me time and again saying that I was too young to know what I wanted. I never wanted children, and only wanted an end to the extreme pain, profuse blood loss, nausea and vomiting that I suffered from. You denied me that relief. You put me on medications that caused other ...

VOTE EARLY

With the November 2022 election a little over a week away, it’s time to think about your plan for voting. Early voting in Wisconsin started on October 25 and will continue until Friday, November 4th. In large municipalities, voters often have a variety of options for where they can vote early. For example, many public libraries in Madison are early voting sites. In smaller towns and villages, the municipal clerk’s office is usually the place to vote early. Voting early is a great option. Working parents can get it done and not worry that a soccer game or unexpe...
