Women worldwide are facing huge challenges from war, terrorism, and anti-abortion fanatics. In the U.S. over 400 bills have been introduced in a Republican attempt to end abortion rights. After Texas defunded most of their clinics in 2013, a new study estimates that up to 240,000 women tried to self-induce abortions using herbs, teas, and drugs from Mexico. In the Middle East, ISIS enslaves, rapes and kills women, going so far as to use young girls as forced bombers.

Women are fighting back for reproductive justice, for the rights and dignity of domestic workers, for an end to rape, harassment and abuse worldwide. Be a part of the discussion.

Speaker: Terry Moon, Managing Editor of News & Letters, author of “Women battle war, terrorism and anti-abortion fanatics
