    Sickening Incompetence: The Little Congress That Couldn't

    While the 112th Congress was busy screwing around with the fiscal cliff that they built for themselves, the Violence Against Women Act was left by the wayside. The VAWA was originally passed in 1994 but expired in 2011 when some of the more conservative congressmen voted against expanded protection for more diverse rape victims. The anemic, watered-down version passed in May, but any promise of a full-fledged Violence Against Women Act died when the politicians decided fighting with one another was more important than protecting rape victims.

    6 Reasons Why 2012 Made Women Everywhere Smile

    The year 2012 was a tumultuous one for women’s rights. The battle isn’t won yet, but the war on women was dealt a huge blow when people all across America and the world stood up in support of women everywhere.

    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.
