As you watch Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation hearing, keep in mind #WhatsAtStake.…
"For millions of women, [Kavanaugh's confirmation] could mean they won’t be able to get their abortion, whether Roe is overturned right away or not."…
We already know what happens when we make abortion illegal or severely restrict the procedure: Las ricas abortan, las pobres mueren. Rich women have abortions, poor women die.…

Dudes can talk to me about it being a "scary time for men" once most of you have a panic attack after being followed by a menacing stranger up the stairs of your building who only backs off because you ring the bell of your empty apartment hoping they think someone is there
Before you call me ~hysterical~ know that I know what being followed feels like and don't need to explain this shit but:

This man was sitting in the stairs, looking out of it, and began following me up to my apartment when I didn't answer to his "hey." I sped up and so did he.
I turned around and loudly asked if he needed something, to which he answered he "lives here." He came to my floor, even though I've never seen him here. Only when I rang the bell to my own damn apartment, he went back down. So yeah, fuck off with the "it's scary for men now."

Unlike so many other women I know, I’ve never been assaulted. Here’s why:
I’ve had bad sex that was not equitable, but wasn’t assault or in the gray area. I recently realized someone once tried to spike my drink, but nothing happened. I’ve never faced what 1 in 4 women and 1 in 6 men have lived through.

And it all boils down to dumb fucking luck.
I absolutely hate that I call it “luck.” We’ve got a long way to go to dismantle the systems that allow predators and abusers to flourish, but we must. To rely on “luck” to keep us safe is fucking bullshit.

A master class on how to scrape the bottom of the SEO barrel while still disrespecting Jane Mayer, who’s been a star reporter longer than Ronan has been alive!!!!
When we said, “Maybe everyone should credit Jane Mayer as Ronan Farrow’s partner in all these stories instead of erasing her work” we didn’t mean “Write a story for Google that neglects to mention her name in the headline and erases her work anyway.”
The story does go into detail explaining the erasure of Mayer’s work on these scoops but the positioning suuuccckkksss anyway.

A year ago, life changed in Puerto Rico forever. Hurricane Maria, with its unforgivable rain and winds, was just the beginning of a long journey.

I talked with women who survived the storm, to reflect on it one year later. Here are the stories of Maria.…
More than 50 women reached out with their experiences. Among them is a pregnant woman who drank water from fallen coconuts to survive, a mother of two who escaped through a window after the ocean flooded her house, and a woman who lost four family members.…
Their stories are stories of loss and heartbreak, but also of so much resilience, kindness, and love for their communities.

I'm so grateful to each one of you who reached out, even though we couldn't include every single story. Las llevo en el corazón.…

After last night’s panel with @MMViverito and @AlanAAja1, I’ve been thinking a lot about Melissa mentioning that Puerto Ricans in the island and the diaspora are still struggling with the trauma of Hurricane Maria.
It’s so difficult to put into words how the storm and its aftermath shook our community. But just know that almost a year later, we are still mourning.

With that in mind I gotta say something in English and Spanish.
Boricua: As we get closer to the one-year mark of Hurricane Maria, we’ll be bombarded with commemorative stories. You don’t have to read them. You can choose to protect yourself from reliving your trauma. Please take care of yourself.
