• Tell FIFA: Recognize the Afghan women’s national soccer team
    The fight for women's rights in Afghanistan is a long and ongoing battle that has taken a huge step backwards with recent Taliban control. Despite immense danger and sacrifice, the Afghan women's soccer team is working to prove progress is possible. By breaking down cultural barriers and taking the field, they are not only challenging societal norms, but they are also providing a source of hope and inspiration. The problem? FIFA, the governing body of international soccer, refuses to recognize the team. This failure means the women cannot represent their country, compete in professional matches, or receive the funding they need to pay players and staff. But that can change. After months of player protests and widespread criticism over its human rights abuses in Doha, FIFA is eager to rehabilitate its image. And with the Women's World Cup taking place in Australia and New Zealand this July, FIFA will once again be center stage — and sensitive to public pressure and protest.  Right now, FIFA’s PR machine is closely watching and listening. That means we have a crucial opportunity to call on them to use their power for good. Can you join us to support women’s rights and diplomacy by signing our petition to FIFA President Gianni Infantino?

  • No to a National Abortion Ban!
    January 22 should have marked the 50th anniversary of Roe protecting abortion rights in our country. Instead, following the Dobbs decision, which overturned the right to abortion provided by Roe, right-wing Republican laws have taken effect in state after state to ban abortion and criminalize those who seek and provide it. These harsh laws take away a fundamental right that had been guaranteed by the Constitution for nearly 50 years and fulfill an extremist vision of exerting control over our health, our bodies, and our autonomy. As a result, pregnant people—many of whom already faced challenges accessing the abortion care that should have been their right—are forced to travel long distances to seek care, or to carry to term pregnancies that could be harmful or fatal. And we see these same Republicans seeking to jail and punish people in cruel and outrageous ways. The Republican Party is now bringing these attacks to Congress, where their majority in the House of Representatives wasted no time in passing two anti-abortion bills. We know they won't stop there: They'll go after the right to contraception, limit access to self-managed abortion, and seek a full national abortion ban. We need to stop them at all costs. Democrats in the Senate and President Biden need to take every measure to defeat these bills. More than that, they need to continue the fight to codify the protections of Roe into law—and do away with the regressive filibuster, if necessary, to pass such a bill in the Senate. And as the House continues to vote on these bills, we need every member of Congress to hear from their constituents, to know that a vast, bipartisan majority of Americans support abortion rights, and that they will be held accountable for voting for any measure that seeks to limit those rights, including a national abortion ban.

  • Don’t Silence Doctors from Speaking Out on Patients’ Suffering as a Result of Abortion Bans
    The net effect of such practices is to make medical staff fear for their jobs and careers and intimidate them into silence, so as to hide the tremendous suffering, health damage, and heartbreak that abortion bans are inflicting on people. The CNN report describes the many ways hospitals and university medical centers use to silence doctors and medical staff and downplay the suffering caused by abortion bans. Some hospitals block or hinder media requests to interview their doctors and researchers on the topic. Others police social media posts about abortion—a university medical center’s lawyer insisted a group of residents in obstetrics and gynecology take down their Instagram post that said, “Abortion is healthcare,” even though many medical professional groups such as the American Academy of Pediatrics and American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists have used the exact same phrase. Even when hospitals have allowed their doctors to speak publicly, these employers insist that the physicians do not disclose where they work and make clear they would prefer that the doctors not speak at all. Will you support doctors speaking up for reproductive health and justice by signing the petition now?

  • We Need Real Coverage of Iranian Uprising
    In Iran, women, queer folks, and primarily young Iranians are leading protests against the repressive regime—risking their safety and in some cases already losing their lives. It's an inspirational uprising for freedom and bodily autonomy that deserve global attention, solidarity and support. However, most Americans don't even know it's happening. The Iranian authorities have imposed a media blackout. Tragically, through their lack of coverage, major U.S. media outlets are perpetuating a media blackout of their own. If you scan newspaper headlines or track what's covered on 24 hour cables news and the network evening news shows, you'll find very little coverage of Iran—and no mentions in many outlets. When they do have a segment or interview, it often gets the story wrong—such as the New York Times emphasizing economic pressures and erasing the feminist spark at the center of this action and the protest cries for bodily autonomy and of "down with dictators." The New York Times and Wall Street Journal even recently misreported about the regime's "morality police." And news segments all-too-often turn to white Americans of European descent instead of voices of the Iranian diaspora or the voices that are emerging from Iran itself. What the brave Iranians who are protesting—again, mostly women, young people, and queer Iranians—need is to have their voices, stories, and images shared again and again. The U.S. media can play an important role giving more coverage, airtime, and online prominence to these protesters and to this uprising, which will engage more Americans and help turn more global attention on to this historic series of events.

  • Implement a "No Shame Dress Code" at STHS
    The current dress code perpetuates sexism, mental illness and an environment that does not support the learning of all students. The dress code sexualizes and objectifies the female student body and is demeaning to the male student body. Without change, this will continue to negatively impact our current and future student body.

  • Pass Prison Nursery Bill in Florida
    By creating an official prison nursery program that would allow mothers to raise their newborns from behind bars-- a practice that has been proven to reduce the likelihood of continued arrests and help decrease the number of children sent to foster care systems. This bill would apply to incarcerated women for non-violent crimes that are soon to finish their time served or are in for a short time. As Floridians, I believe it is our responsibility to act not only in the best interest of these children but in the best interest of their Mothers. Studies show that mothers who are allowed to be in contact with their babies during the first integral few months of being born produce lower rates of recidivism among participating mothers. It has been proven that prolonged disruption of parental care alters how the young brain develops. Please help us support women's rights, and advocate for the youth by supporting and sharing this petition!

  • Menstruation & Adverse Educational Impacts in Nigeria
    Tangible challenges such as inadequate materials, lack of access to sanitation products and inadequate facilities, coupled with psychological challenges such as the lack of menarche education, fear and cultural stigmatization put secondary school girls and menstruating youth in Nigeria at a disproportionate risk for adverse educational impacts and other negative outcomes.
