Kudos & Awards – WLW Journal

ON THE ISSUES really is–on the issues, that is. It kind of reminds me of Ms. When it was a lot younger and a lot more feisty, when it really had something to say about topics of concern to women no matter how revolutionary or radical they seemed. A look at some topics covered in recent issues will give you some ideas: “outing” of gays; the role of women in Nazi Germany; animal rights; abortion providers (or almost total lack of them in rural areas); speciesist language; death of a victim of parental-consent laws; invisible women in the media; a convicted rapist — was he framed?; women’s “great life” in Sweden; the massacre of women students in Montreal — lethal misogyny?; abortion: another version of the Holocaust?; and so on. ON THE ISSUES has it all, and has become one of the most outspoken feminst journals in the U.S. My only regret after reading every page of the issues that were sent to me for this article is that this excellent magazine isn’t a monthly instead of a quarterly.

“Merle Hoffman has always known that in a democracy, we each have decision-making power over the fate of our own bodies. She is a national hero for us all.” —Gloria Steinem

In the wake of the Supreme Court overturning Roe V. Wade and a country divided, Merle Hoffman, a pioneer in the pro-choice movement and women’s healthcare, offers an unapologetic and authoritative take on abortion calling it “the front line and the bottom line of women’s freedom and liberty.” 

Merle Hoffman has been at the forefront of the reproductive freedom movement since the 1970s. Three years before the Supreme Court legalized abortion through Roe v. Wade, she helped to establish one of the United States’ first abortion centers in Flushing, Queens, and later went on to found Choices, one of the nation’s largest and most comprehensive women’s medical facilities. For the last five decades, Hoffman has been a steadfast warrior and fierce advocate for every woman’s right to choose when and whether or not to be a mother.
