LAST CHANCE! Sign Up for Tuesday's Call: “The Right-Wing Backlash”

If we needed any more proof that right-wing forces are gaining momentum in the US, recent events in Arizona have highlighted the urgent need to address the rise of a movement against progressive social change whose currency seems to be growing daily.

Tomorrow at 1:00 pm EDT, the Ms. Foundation for Women and Jean Hardisty, Ph.D. will host a conference call to provide in-depth analysis of the current "right-wing backlash" – including a discussion of what this trend could mean for progressive grassroots women's advocacy across the US.

Sign up now to join the conversation!
