News flash, Cecile:  Abortion is not and never has been #WhatWomenNeed.(Our pipes have been frozen for a few days, and my hair is in desperate need of washing; so my vanity won't let me post a picture of myself holding a #WhatWomenNeed placard.  But if you want to join in the fun with New Wave Feminists, where you can find a template for the placard, my suggestion for What Women Need is "PEACE IN THE WOMB.") … [Read more...]
