Petition: United States Congress: Please co-sponser the Pregnancy Workers Fairness Act. -
Please sign this petition. The Pregnancy Workers Fairness Act would require employers to make reasonable accommodations for pregnancy, childbirth, and related medical conditions that are provided for disabilities, ensuring pregnant women can continue to do their jobs and support their families. Pregnant women have been fired because they asked to avoid certain activities because of pregnancy related medical conditions.

This is remarkable because 1) it is gender neutral and 2) it addresses issue of access. Because without both RIGHTS and ACCESS, there is no choice.
Well done, CRR.

Amazing picture. Article here.
What a champion. Wow, the amount of respect, and admiration I have for this woman. She is such an inspiration. I can’t even.
a picture is worth a thousand words and this one really is. I totally agree ^
This is some silly shit right here. A bitch trips and gets back up with a baton she is a hero? Your ancestors must have been some type of magical beings. I know understand the mythos of our kind. Every woman you see today is part of an unbroken genetic line of mothers and daughters. That means some old bitches out running dinosaurs, the next bitches out running lions and last bitches out running Christians and the plague and shit, but they were just primitive cunts, this bitch beat the odds… And defeated the monster in her home known as Netflix to play a running game. What an inspiration.
the way that you speak about women is APPALLING. if you don’t think this story is worth admiration, that’s 100% fine - but find a less denigrating way to make your point. gross.
Really inspiring pictures, ruined by sexist, irrelevant, illogical comments.
