Women on Why They're Stocking Up on the Morning-After PillAfter the announcement of the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, the morning-after contraception pill has emerged as a sought-after purchase for many people worried about access to reproductive health care. Some women have bought morning-after pills in case they or their sexually active children need to prevent a pregnancy after having sex. Others are creating a small stockpile in anticipation of possible restrictions on contraception as Justice Clarence Thomas suggested in a conc And there's nothing wrong with that. Just don't wait 4 months before you decide you don't want a baby. Men should be stocking up on condoms. They too play a part in pregnancy.

Why Female CEOs Gave Themselves Pay Cuts While Male CEOs Took RaisesI am a global CEO, entrepreneur, business leader, linguaphile, philanthropist, feminist, and mother. After living, studying, and working in five countries across the globe, and quitting a particularly nightmarish job, I decided it was time to chart my own future. Driven by a passion for language and cultural diversity, and a vision to break down boundaries, forge new paths forward, and connect people and businesses across the globe, I founded my dream company out of an NYU dorm room. Today, that dorm-room startup is the world’s largest privately-owned language solutions company, with over $500 million in revenue, 4,000 employees, 11,000 clients, and offices in more than 90 cities around the globe. As for me, I’m still fueled by a passion for breaking down boundaries – not only geographically, culturally, and technologically – but also in the workplace for other entrepreneurial women working toward their dreams and building a better tomorrow.

LA City Council Takes Another Step Towards Climate Goals With More 'Green' Vehicles And A Better Power Grid After his death, cyclists and safety advocates called on the city to make the park safer and limit access to drivers of vehicles.urring opinion published last week.Now what?

Surround Yourself With Amazing Latina Women Now, in response to these economic shocks, it would seem the most appropriate course of action for a CEO would be to take a pay cut to minimize layoffs, a course that prioritizes the bedrock of a company: the people who work there and, through no fault of their own, find their world turned upside down.

City Councilmember Nithya Raman said her office was already exploring ways to improve safety and reduce car traffic in the park, but Jelmert’s “sudden and incredibly tragic death… really made this an intervention with real urgency behind it.” L. Chrissy Bowen, 51, was sitting on the couch Friday morning in her Flower Mound, Texas, living room when her husband noticed a breaking news message on the screen of their muted TV: The Supreme Court had overturned Roe v.A. Jackson Women’s Health Organization was the culmination of the Republican Party’s long and powerful partnership with the anti-abortion movement.’s Department of Recreation and Parks has sole jurisdiction over the roads, making upgrades easier, she noted. After ducking into the shower, where she burst into tears, Bowen pasted into her group text chats with friends a link to My Choice Emergency Contraceptive, a tablet that can be taken up to three days after sex. “There may be some things that require council approval, but there's a lot of departmental and council office leeway here that enables us to move forward,” she said. Yes, this is an extremely reductive and wildly outmoded way of thinking, but it has deep, deep roots going back to the dawn of human civilization, and we’ve been soaking in it our entire lives.

It is different from abortion pills, known as misoprostol and mifepristone, which taken together are used to terminate an established pregnancy, according to Megan Freeland, the director of health communications for Planned Parenthood Federation of America. Wade was a hurdle, not the finish line. At the same time, city officials are exploring long-term safety upgrades for about five miles of park road along Griffith Park Drive and Crystal Springs Drive. Griffth Park Drive is closed to cars from the Travel Town Museum to Mt. “Reminder,” she texted another of the group chats, referencing an earlier discussion about buying the contraceptive. Hollywood Drive (noted in orange). Wade decision, both leading candidates for the GOP presidential nomination favored a constitutional amendment overturning Roe. (Screenshot via Google My Maps) The parks department hired a consulting firm to study traffic patterns, conduct speed surveys and observe conditions on the roads. Story continues “The rules are the same for both my kids,” said Bowen, who has a daughter in high school and a son in college. A man facing an economic downturn that might conceivably reduce his ability to provide makes a gendered but rational decision to take home more money; a woman facing the same economic downturn makes a gendered but rational decision to take a backseat and sacrifice for the proverbial family.

They reported notable cut-through traffic, with drivers frequently traveling over the posted speed limit of 25 mph. The study also notes wide lanes and “conflict areas” — places where car drivers, cyclists and pedestrians interact on the roads — increase the risk of dangerous or fatal collisions. I didn’t become a crazy buyer hoarding hundreds of pills, and I’m not trying to supply contraception to the whole town. Yet for decades, the GOP couldn’t deliver. The consultants noted the lack of protected bike space in the park, saying it’s mostly “strong and fearless” cyclists that feel comfortable enough to ride in present conditions. Support for LAist comes from Some other safety concerns listed in the study: Not enough bicycle-related signage and road striping  “Poor connections” to nearby bike lanes Limited visibility for drivers as they approach crosswalks Not enough “traffic calming devices” (aka lights to alert drivers) at crosswalks No paved pedestrian infrastructure on Crystal Springs Drive  Poor quality and faded traffic signage  Next Steps So what’s next? Raman said the goal is for consultants to present “a set of options that will give us those short-term measures that are quick and dirty, that can get us to some immediate improvements in safety.” Bowen checked on her order the day after the ruling and saw a notice on the Amazon seller’s page: the seller’s inventory had sold out.” Longer-term measures “may require a little bit more community input” and potentially additional funding, she noted. They took the deal. Over and over, we, as a society, have chosen to reduce the economic prospects of women.

In the days since the decision, many women have looked for a tool to assert control over their own reproductive futures and logged onto retail and health care websites to buy emergency contraceptive pills that are taken after sex to try to prevent pregnancies .
