FEATURES

Cover Story

Jailing Girls for Men’s Crimes | BY CARRIE BAKER
Is an underage girl arrested for selling sex a criminal—or a victim of trafficking? Outraged activists want to send such girls
to safe harbors, not jail.

Feminism in a Mad World | BY AVIVA DOVE-VIEBAHN
Mad Men’s women remind us how far we’ve come, and how far we have to go.

The Feminist Food Revolution | BY JENNIFER COGNARD-BLACK
From farms to community gardens to restaurants, women are taking food back into their own hands. So why do men keep
getting all the credit?

The Right of Every Woman | BY BELLE TAYLOR-MCGHEE
In Uganda, where maternal mortality is way too high, local communities dramatically get out the word about safe motherhood.

 
DEPARTMENTS

Environment
Man-Made, Woman-Saved | BY ANTONIA JUHAS Z
Guess who’s helping clean up BP’s Gulf Coast oil disaster— and working to prevent another from occurring?

Money
Cuba Puts Women Forward, But... | BY MARTHA BURK
Even with government support for gender equality, there’s still a cultural double standard.

Law
There’s Nothing Friendly About Abuse | BY R. DIANNE BART LOW
Children are at risk when custody cases rely on a meritless theory of
parental “alienation.”

Fiction
Snakes | BY DANI E L L E E VANS
A young mixed-race girl learns painfully that “we are safe, with our families, until we are not.”

Backtalk
The Fourth in 235 Years | BY DONNA BRAZILE

huge gender gap.
