World Health Day 2020: Support Nurses and Midwives

During this completely life-altering, history-transforming global pandemic, non-essential health care has stopped, and many non-emergency doctors and nurses are being quickly trained to treat patients infected with COVID-19. We literally owe these health care workers our lives. Many of them are becoming infected themselves, in the process of treating sick patients. Some of them have […]

COVID-19: Pandemics and Population Growth

All any of us are reading about these days is the novel coronavirus, COVID-19. The Democratic Primary? Harry and Meghan ditching their royal crowns and moving to Canada? It truly seems as if those previously all-consuming stories have been forgotten and replaced with articles about TP altercations, sports cancellations, and how ineffectively we’ve been washing […]

World Wildlife Day 2020: Sustaining All Life on Earth

  More than a billion animals died in Australia’s bushfires over the past few months. Animals including koalas, kangaroos, and wallabies—cute, furry marsupials that the world adores.

While there were some valid points raised, it conflated the history of our group and the movement at large. In that sense, it’s a bit like excoriating today’s Democratic Party for the overt racism of President Wilson. While ZPG […]

Violence Against Women Is Real, Present, and Universal

Today marks the observance of the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women. Unfortunately, for many of us who work in the global reproductive health and rights sphere, it’s especially, even harrowingly, resonant this year.
