Linda’s interview with Elisabeth Sackler is excellent. I interviewed Sackler several years ago and was delighted to see that she has carried forward with her goals. I particularly enjoyed the Patricia Cronin exhibit and will be interviewing the artist for Gay and Lesbian Review in connection with her show and catalogue Raisaonne; Harriet Hosmer: Lost and Found. A fascinating exercise in linking lesbian art and artists across the centuries.

Linda’s staticstics tell us all we need to know about NOT equal things are in the worlds of art and art history. Let’s hope On The Issues and the Sackler Center can right some of these wrongs and give a fuller picture of feminism, art and history not to mention assure social justice.

Merle Hoffman's Choices: A Post-Roe Abortion Rights Manifesto

“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, a pioneer in the pro-choice movement and women’s healthcare offers an unapologetic and authoritative take on abortion—“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.
