I'm voting for Biden. I also think the Senate should confirm Judge Barrett

The coming weeks may be brutal: The level of partisan rancor and performative outrage that we've seen over the timing of Judge Amy Coney Barrett's nomination may intensify during the confirmation hearings. And if that's the case, the hearings will be more than just terrible TV. They will underscore the fact that the American people -- and their senators -- are sorely lacking in basic civic knowledge. There may be protesters from the gallery shouting, for example, that Judge Barrett hates women's uteruses, and senators will likely be pandering to such unfounded criticism.

Opinion: Covid has been a terrible setback for mothers who work

As Covid-19 continues to wreak havoc on Americans' health, the American economy is suffering, too -- and our elected officials are doing virtually nothing to lessen the pain.

SCOTUS threat to same-sex marriage is very real

The nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to replace the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has generated discussion about the future of Roe v.

How RBG went from a 'moderate' choice to a fiery dissenter

When President Bill Clinton selected Ruth Bader Ginsburg as the nominee from his Supreme Court shortlist in 1993, women's groups—both conservative and liberal—raised concerns. As we discuss in our book "Shortlisted," some feminists criticized Ginsburg's position on equality as one that ignored the historic oppression of women. She advocated that men and women should be treated equally under the law, rather than receive special treatment based on their sex. Additionally, abortion opponents and champions alike expressed trepidation about her appointment.

Two anniversaries Trump is dishonoring

Last month, Americans celebrated the centennial of the 19th Amendment, recognizing women's right to vote. This celebration rings hollow -- as we hurtle toward the 2020 election -- if we fail to learn from the ways that race has been used to fracture women's efforts toward coalition politics and our collective understanding of our rights. For example, even as Senator Kamala Harris's historic role as the first woman of color to run for vice president on a major party ticket energizes feminist coalitions, Donald Trump's divisive manipulation of racial stereotypes seeks to fracture and obscure women's shared interests.

What Americans still owe Fannie Lou Hamer

By the time civil rights activist Fannie Lou Hamer delivered a speech at the 1971 founding meeting of the National Women's Political Caucus, she was a nationally recognized leader in the movement for Black voting rights. In the tradition of Black feminist thought, as reflected in the earlier abolition movement, Hamer fused a desire to eradicate both racism and sexism in American society.
