"I’m not sure I’m going to state this exactly right. But I think there are some who believe they are actually protecting women, you know, and that it is better for women to be taken care of. I think women want to take care of themselves, and I think having a voice in how that is done is very important. And frankly, I don’t understand — I mean, I’m obviously a card-carrying Democrat — but I can’t understand why any woman would want to vote for Mitt Romney, except maybe Mrs. Romney."

In working on my book, I went to Rwanda in 2004 to interview women who had borne children of rape conceived during the genocide. …At the end of my final interview, I asked the woman I was interviewing whether she had any questions. She paused shyly for a moment. “Well,” she said, a little hesitantly. “You work in this field of psychology.” I nodded. She took a deep breath. “Can you tell me how to love my daughter more?” she asked. “I want to love her so much, and I try my best, but when I look at her I see what happened to me and it interferes.” A tear rolled down her cheek, but her tone turned almost fierce, challenging. “Can you tell me how to love my daughter more?” she repeated.
Perhaps Todd Akin has an answer for her."

You may recognize the style of these photos from this series, which was donated by photographer Liora K to Unite Women a couple of months ago and subsequently made its way around Tumblr in a pretty big way.
Liora has a new project called Out of Fear: Rediscovering Feminism in America, where she’s looking to travel around the U.S., photographing and interviewing feminists in their home states. There’s a beautiful video accompanying her Kickstarter that explains the project in more detail, and you can see more of these stunning photos here.
