Check out the new and fascinating books from the Feminist Press. I recently read Merle Hoffman's Intimate Wars and it was an engaging read. She covered in detail the war over abortion in New York City and I found myself coming away with a great deal of respect for her. It is a must read for anyone interested in feminist history. You can listen to an interview with Merle Hoffman on the BBC.

A wonderful rundown of women-centered activist opportunities is available at the International Museum of Women's site here.
After surfing around their site, I found a fantastic online exhibition of women's work in the global economy. Check it out!
You can even submit your own work to the Economica exhibit. Click the image for a link to their site.
I am getting very nervous that Martha Coakley is going to lose her race for Teddy Kennedy's seat for the U.S. Senate representing Massachusetts. If she loses, the Democrats will lose their essential 60 votes to avoid a potential Republican filibuster. She might not be the most exciting candidate but women should be rallying around her campaign in the interest of health reform and expanding coverage. Visit her campaign site to learn more about this very crucial race.
