One of those feminists

When I first heard that RH Reality Check was starting reader diaries, I
was excited. As a feminist who staunchly supports reproductive rights,

valuable resource.

Beginnings

It certainly is exciting to be starting an RH Reality Check reader
blog. I’ve been a fan of the site for a long time; I look forward to
Mondays because it means a new Amanda Marcotte podcast, and I’m always
amazed by the breadth of experience and knowledge I find among the
people who write for the site.
