In the United States, access to tampons and pads for low-income women is a real problem, too: food stamps don’t cover feminine hygiene products, so some women resort to selling their food stamps in order to pay for “luxuries” like tampons. Women in prison often don’t have access to sanitary products at all, and the high cost of a product that half the population needs multiple times a day, every month for approximately 30 years, is simply, well, bullshit.

You know, I don’t think I’ve ever heard anybody suggest that toilet paper or paper towels in public bathrooms shouldn’t be free.  We’d consider it outrageous if that very basic necessity were to be missing, or provided only for purchase.

And yet.

Harriet Tubman was one of the first ecofeminists but ppl sleep on her b/c she was a Black woman. But it takes such a vast and deep knowledge of geography, ecology, hydrology, soil science, sedimentology,etc to be able to come back and forth from The States to Canada and never get caught and cover your tracks all throughout Northern Appalachia and New England, at all times of the year, 100+ times, freeing 70+ families. Like how many of y’all can go  from here to the next state over with the stars and the land only as your help, and get your location?!?!?!? 

Harriet should be the shining exemplar for eco feminism. Y’all need to have her erected in all y’alls buildings/institutions tbh. Stop  sleepin.

BRYAN FULLER JUST CASUALLY DROPPING PUSHING DAISIES REVIVAL UPDATES LIKE WHAT

BREAKING: Recording captured shots fired at Michael Brown, lawyer says : News

youwish-youcould:

thepoliticalfreakshow:

Six or seven shots. A three-second pause. Four more shots. 

An audio file obtained by the Post-Dispatch on Tuesday is believed to have captured the shooting of Michael Brown Jr.

If authenticated, it would be the first recording of the actual incident to have surfaced since Brown’s death on Aug. 9. 

Lawyer Lopa Blumenthal said her client, who lives in the apartment complex where Brown was killed, captured the shooting while recording a video text message to a friend.

Blumenthal said the man who made the recording did not want to be named. She said he came forward reluctantly and feared for his safety. 

The FBI interviewed him for about an hour and a half on Monday, she said. 

A private autopsy showed Brown was shot six times, but did not reveal the number of times Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson fired his weapon.

The shooting has sparked nightly demonstrations and attracted world wide media attention.

Blumenthal said sympathizers to both Brown and Wilson have contacted her saying that the three second pause bolsters their cases.  

But Blumenthal said she thought the recording was important. 

"There was a pause," she said,"and to me a pause means time to think and contemplate." 

Blumenthal would not reveal her client’s name or the exact location of his residence, except to say it was in the Canfield Green apartment complex in close proximity to the shooting.

Nor would she give out the name of the person who received the video. 

But she said she was certain the recording is authentic. 

"I’m 100 percent positive this is accurate," she said. "He is not doing this for the publicity. He has no motivation to lie."
