Mapping Your Rights

Interested in where your state stands on reproductive aand sexual rights?  You should check this newly released web site, Mapping Our Rights: Navigating Discrimination Against Women, Men and Families, which ranks states based on their level of protection for reproductive and sexual rights.  The website is part of a project completed by Ipas, an international reproductive health organization based in Chapel Hill; the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force; and the SisterSong Women of Color Reproductive Health Collective.  My home state, Ohio, ranked 50th - obviously we need to so some work here.   It tied with South Dakota for that last place spot.  New York and New Mexico tied for 1st.   For more information on the methodology, please see Pandagon and thanks to them for the heads up on this informative website.  [bm]
