Local news needs your support


We have been sharing the voices and vision of women since 1985, as one of the longest continuously published feminist platforms in the country. With COVID-19, we are using our unique blend of first-person narratives and reporting to share the stories about inequities that women are seeing, and solutions for post-pandemic transformation.

Some of the stories we have published so far:

“The Gender Lens on COVID-19,” a story about action steps readers can take and resources around increased gender-based violence

“Being Away From Ailing Loved Ones,” about ways to grieve when you cannot connect physically with elderly loved ones, with resources

“Writing My Way Through,” about one woman’s coping mechanism

“Rebuild by Centering Equity,” an honest essay from the director of the Coalition of Asian American Leaders: “I would be lying if I said I want to see things return to what they were before COVID-19."

“Implications for the Future,” the vision that a 19-year-old sustainable ecology student has for a new future:

Our intention in the coming weeks are increased personal reflections, and deeper reported stories, into the ideas women have for how true transformation might work to help us emerge stronger from this local and global crisis. What has the pandemic response told us so far? What is the 20/20 vision for how to co-create a more sustainable, equitable society?

A pandemic should be making our health system better and more accessible. It's important to spread the word about the importance of all- person access to primary care.
