Looks Like It Will Be Janet Yellen & Good News for Reproductive Rights

Another first — the first female head of the Fed.  Wow!  Now juxtapose this with the second anniversary of Occupy Wall Street.  Perhaps she could use her position to shed some light — enlighten this potentially powerful social movement that has a lot to offer the city and the nation, and could have more effective global reach.

And, another victory for women and girls (and a defeat for neotribalism)!  The Sixth Circuit appellate court did not give a secular business (not a corporation with personhood) standing as an individual.  This business claimed that giving its employees contraception coverage violated the family’s religious freedom, even though this family was not liable for the non-compliance fees.  The Third Circuit court ruled similarly early, but since the Tenth Circuit court took the opposite view, the circuit-court split means the Supreme Court could weigh in soon.
