This week at OK4RJ, Jen broke down just who is going to be disproportionately affected by ID requirements for over-the-counter emergency contraception. Here’s a hint: It’s not privileged teenagers who forgot their learners’ permit at home. Mallory turned her grief at the cancellation of Bomb Girls into brilliant commentary on the experience [...]
Hey y’all, I’m alive! I’ve been awakened from my blog slumber! From my writer’s block cocoon, I’ve emerged a beautiful, side-eyeing butterfly!

Hey y’all. It’s me, Mallory, again. Unfortunately Molly had to step down from writing the round up for awhile. What does that mean? It means the snark-factor of this blog went waaaaay down. We’ll miss you, Molly, but wish you the best of luck at your grown up, Trust Women job.

Oh Hai Y’all. TGIF, AMIRITE?
Let’s do a quick run through of what you might have missed from us this week.
Jessie went and did an interview with the coolest person on my computer…ME. LOLZ4Ever!

Ms. Paltrow is an author, activist, and attorney and the Founder and Executive Director of National Advocates for Pregnant Women (NAPW), an organization that “works [...]
As part of our OK4RJ blog interview series, where we catch up with Take Root conference presenters before they arrive in Norman, Oklahoma on February 15, I was able to interview OK4RJ’s own Molly. You may know Molly as the gif-loving personality twerking her way through our [...]
