Women's Equality Day
Wisconsin has a long, complicated past with the suffrage
In 1919, Wisconsin earned bragging rights by becoming the first
state to ratify the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, the
legislation that would guarantee women the right to vote. But thetiming was close. The same day, Illinois legislators also approved
the amendment - before Wisconsin legislators did. But a misprint in
the preamble to the Illinois resolution required a do-over, soWisconsin prevailed.
Opinion: Celebrating the 19th Amendment: The Struggles of our
Grandmothers, the Rights of Our Daughters
This month marks the 90th Anniversary of the 19th Amendment,
WWN earns every time
which, after decades of long battles, gave women the right to vote
you search with
in the United States. When you think about it, 90 years is a
relatively short period of time - especially when you ponder thingssuch as the age of the earth, human evolution or the wondrousredwood trees in the Western United States.
Women's Health and Reproductive Rights
Immigrants Lured to Cheap, Do-it-Yourself Abortions
Safe and effective, the drug is used globally to prevent women
from post-partum hemorrhaging and is widely prescribed in
combination with RU-486 in the United States to induce
miscarriage. But for some low-income women, misoprostol has
become a do-it-yourself abortion tool.
Madison Diocese offers birth control insurance, but warns
employees not to use it
A state law is forcing the Madison Catholic Diocese this month to
begin offering its employees insurance coverage for birth control.
However, a diocesan spokesman said employees will be warned
against using the benefit and that open defiance of Catholic
teaching on the issue could ultimately lead to termination.
Crusader with a checkbook: Anne Nicol Gaylor helps women
Gaylor is well-known for leading the Freedom From Religion
Foundation in Madison for decades. Less known is her work with
the Women's Medical Fund, which she co-founded in 1976, the same
year she helped start the foundation. The fund's sole purpose is to
pay for abortions. Last year, it paid out $162,202, about 75 percentof which came from individual donors, the rest from foundations.
New Study Shows That Childless Women Succeed More Than
Mothers in the Workplace
A new study from the University of Chicago claims that childless
women become more successful in the workplace than women with
children. Men and women have nearly identical incomes and
working hours once graduating from college, but 15 years later the
men's incomes soar to 75 percent more than incomes earned by
women, according to the study. The only exception to the rule is
the small group of women who have never had children and whose
pay equals that of their male peers.
Federal Job Funding Opens Doors for Single Mothers
The federal funding program for job creation has given states
various ways to help workers hurt by the recession. Florida created
jobs for low-income parents, many of them young single mothers.
Mississippi gave preference to employers with small payrolls.
The female victims of Pakistan's flood
85 percent of persons displaced by the flood are women and
children. As the floodwaters rise, they are at acute risk from
starvation, exposure, sexual assault and water-borne diseases.
However, providing them with assistance is more difficult than
these basic facts suggest. In traditional Pakistani society, it is
taboo for women to receive aid or medical care from male relief
workers, preventing many of them from seeking such aid in the
