There is considerable political mobilization and legal contention around Reproductive rights in many democracies around the world. In the US, a rollback of these rights has been underway over the past decades. The Supreme Court is likely to (re)consider its landmark 1973 Roe v Wade ruling that legalized abortion nationwide. In contrast, activists have made progress on reproductive rights elsewhere in the world. Only a few months ago, Argentina legalised abortions up to the 14th week of pregnancy. In this episode, we're joined by Katha Pollitt (feminist writer and activist) and Tamara Tenenbaum (University of Buenos Aires and also an activist) to compare and contrast the experience in their societies. They discuss what the current struggles, setbacks and victories mean for the future of reproductive rights around the world. Disclaimer: this episode contains explicit language Democracy in Question? is brought to you by:• The Institute for Human Sciences in Vienna: IWM• The Albert Hirschman Centre on Democracy in Geneva: AHCD• The Excellence Chair and Soft Authoritarianism Research Group in Bremen: WOC• The Podcast Company: Earshot StrategiesFollow us on social media!• Institute for Human Sciences in Vienna: @IWM_Vienna• Albert Hirschman Centre on Democracy in Geneva: @AHDCentre• Our guest Katha Pollitt: @KathaPollitt• Our guest Tamara Tenenbaum: @tamtenenbaumSubscribe to the show.

Wade (1973) was a landmark decision of the U.S. Supreme Court in which the Court ruled that the Constitution of the United States protects a pregnant woman's liberty to choose to have an abortion without excessive government restriction. It struck down many U.S. federal and state abortion laws and prompted an ongoing national. Roe v. Wade reshaped U.S. politics, dividing much of the country into abortion rights and anti-abortion movements, while activating grassroots movements on both sides.

It is a pro-choice advocacy organization.What is the fourth and second feminist wave?(00:24:00 or p. 15 in the transcript)Second wave feminism was a period of feminist activity and thought that began in the early 1960s and lasted roughly two decades. It began in the U.S. and quickly spread across the Western world. This wave unfolded in the context of the anti-war and civil rights movements. Learn more.Many claim that a fourth wave of feminism began about 2012, with a focus on sexual harassment, body shaming, and rape culture, among other issues. A key component was the use of social media to highlight and address these concerns. Learn more.What is the sex (in relation to gender)?(00:25:30 or p. 15 in the transcript)The distinction between sex and gender was introduced in feminist discourses to argue against biological determinism (the idea that biology determines social behavior). While sex is used to describe biological differences, gender describes the social, cultural, and performative aspects of gender. The distinction between sex and gender enables us to view gender differences as resulting from cultural practices and social expectations, not as biological facts.

The King County Board of Health is looking into whether it should repeal the county's bicycle helmet law, after concerns it is unfairly enforced and targets people of color.Central Seattle Greenways, a group advocating for safer streets, started researching the law last year in the wake of nationwide protests over racial inequality.“We found that Black cyclists have been cited disproportionately for not wearing a helmet at four times the rate of white cyclists, so a really stark disparity,” said Ethan Campbell, who leads the helmet law working group.Latino and Indigenous cyclists were also cited at higher rates, and Crosscut reported that nearly half of all recent citations went to homeless people.Join your host Sean Reynolds, owner of Summit Properties NW and Reynolds & Kline Appraisal as he takes a look at this developing topic.Support the show (https://buymeacoff.ee/seattlepodcast)

Rules of the Game: The Bolder Advocacy Podcast

    On this episode, we celebrate Pride month with a discussion about the fight for equality at the ballot, in legislatures and the courts. From Stonewall to Obergefell and beyond, nonprofits have stood center stage as key advocates.    The pod team for this episode  Zack Ford  Tim Mooney  Natalie Ossenfort    Milestones  1961: Illinois becomes first state to decriminalize homosexuality  1969: Raid of Stonewall Inn (NYC)  1973: Lambda Legal becomes the first legal organization created specifically to fight for gay rights, and Maryland becomes first state to legislatively ban same-sex marriage  1978: Inspired by Harvey Milk, Gilbert Baker designs the first rainbow flag as a symbol of pride  1996: Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) signed into law by President Clinton, banning federal recognition of same-sex marriage  1998: Murder of Matthew Shepard in Laramie, Wyoming makes national news.

Local nonprofits like the Texas Freedom Network and Equality Texas led the charge in advocating against the bill alongside several other incredible nonprofits. While it's possible the bill may be revived during a later legislative session, there is much to celebrate for now.  ARKANSAS recently passed a new law (one of the first of its kind in the nation) that bans gender-affirming healthcare for transgender youth. The ACLU recently filed a lawsuit on behalf of four families and two doctors, who argue that the law is unconstitutional and that it should be struck down so that all children have access to medically necessary care.  Any day now, the United States SUPREME COURT is expected to release a decision in the case of Fulton v. City of Philadelphia, which will decide the constitutionality of a Philadelphia ordinance that bars discrimination based on sexual orientation. A legal challenge against the ordinance was brought by a Catholic foster agency that lost its contract with the city as a result of the nondiscrimination policy. The agency says that the policy violates its First Amendment rights to freedom of religion and speech.    Resources  LGBTQ Advocacy Toolkit  The Work for LGBTQ Equality Marches On by Leslie Barnes  Learn more about Daniel Quasar's redesigned Pride flag

Air Force Veteran Josh Seefried grew up knowing he wanted to serve in the Air Force. It started when his parents sent him to Space Camp in fifth grade, offering him the experience of a lifetime. The next summer, he participated in Aviation Challenge, getting the chance to fly and engage in aerial combat through a simulator. In seventh grade, he petitioned his congressman to get him into a shadow cadet program at the U.S. Air Force Academy, a program reserved only for high school students.After high school, the Air Force Academy officially admitted Seefried as a student and he could not be happier. Yet, his enchantment with the Air Force – and the military more generally – soon turned into trauma. Seefried was gay and was blackmailed and exposed while serving under Don't Ask Don't Tell.In this episode of Borne the Battle, Seefried shares his life's story, from being blackmailed and outed as gay to becoming one of the nation's foremost advocates for LGBT active-duty service members. He discusses: When one of his academy teachers found out he was gay and blackmailed him for favors Being outed as gay How his superiors treated him when investigating his blackmail case Using social media to stake out a space for LGBT members of the military to communicate How he helped fellow service members come out after Don't Ask Don't Tell was repealed An early part of Seefried's strategy to change the military's culture for its LGBT members included the novel use of social media. At a time when social media platforms like Facebook were still new, Seefried formed online groups that connected thousands of LGBT service members.Seefried regularly appeared on major broadcasting networks under the pseudonym “JD Smith,” advocating for the LGBT military community. But after President Obama signed the Don't Ask, Don't Tell Repeal Act of 2010, Seefried publicly came out.After years of LGBT advocacy, Seefried left a lasting mark on the military.

We all want young people to be able to talk to their parents about important life decisions. However, the idea that the government can force healthy family interactions ignores reality for many youth and the lasting injuries that result from enforcing these laws. That is why the Parental Notice of Abortion Act (PNA) is dangerous in Illinois and must be repealed. We are joined by Emily Werth, ACLU of IL Women's and Reproductive Rights Project Staff Attorney, as well as two experts who have seen the harms of PNA up close: Dr. Rebecca Commito, an obstetrician and gynecologist in Chicago, and Retired Judge Susan Fox Gillis.

Scott talks to Heather Brandon-Smith of the Friends Committee on National Legislation about the effort to repeal the 2002 Iraq Authorization for Use of Military Force. Although the 2002 AUMF has been less widely cited as grounds for America's ever-expanding wars in the Middle East than the 2001 version (which authorized the war in Afghanistan), it has been used to justify the war against ISIS in Iraq and the Trump administration's assassination of Iranian general Qassem Soleimani, among other operations. Brandon-Smith is hopeful that the Biden administration is serious about rolling back some aspects of the war on terrorism, and she and her colleagues at FCNL are working to push the anti-war momentum in the right direction. Discussed on the show: "The 2002 Iraq AUMF: What It Is and Why Congress Should Repeal It" (Friends Committee On National Legislation) "With 20th Anniversary of 9/11 Nearing, Biden Team Debates How to End War on Terror" (Foreign Policy) Heather Brandon-Smith is Legislative Director for Militarism and Human Rights at the Friends Committee on National Legislation.

A poorly designed law that works and an expertly designed drink that sucks.When Prohibition was repealed in 1933 American drinkers had a lot of catching up to do. Tastes had changed and big brewers took note, cutting costs and striking ingredients until Americans were left with a low ABV bubbly bread soup that tasted vaguely like something they half-remembered. Flash forward to today and Lite Beer is one of the most well-designed products on the planet, while Americans are still untangling an ungainly patchwork of laws leftover from the bad old prohibition days. It begs the question: what does it mean to make something well?
