Once women have a seat at the table, local women’s funds also help ensure they stay there, by constantly pushing on the issues that matter to us most. They provide a gender lens to the work of those that hold those seats of power, without which women are erased from the conversation and, in turn, from the economic and funding equation entirely.
Ms. intends to ensure that feminists’ views on the ERA and on the problems facing the country and the nation’s political leadership are not side-lined. We can only meet these and other challenges that lie ahead in 2020 with your support,
Ms. is a non-profit, independently-published magazine—meaning we rely on the support of our community to stay in print, publish online and continue mobilizing the feminist movement around the world.

As the 2020 candidates have begun to roll out criminal justice reform proposals, we cannot forget the 219,000 women currently incarcerated in the United States. Tragically, women are often overlooked in plans meant to reduce the number of Americans held in jail cells or sent to prison each year.
We at Ms. magazine want women in prison to know they are seen and valued. Because domestic violence shelters can be almost as isolating as prisons—and often lack libraries or any reading material, just as many prisons do—we decided to include women in those shelters, too. That’s why we started the Ms. Magazine Prison and Domestic Violence Shelter Program.
Keep Ms. on the frontlines—and get exclusive merch—by joining our new sustaining member program.
Out of sight may mean out of mind—and heart. For women in prison, this is the tragedy. For the rest of us, this invisibility keeps us from realizing how much women in prison may resemble and could be you and me.
