Socialist Feminist Section

LVDSA’s Socialist Feminist Section aims to create a space for women and non-binary comrades to come together in typically male-dominated leftist spaces, amplify women and non-binary voices, and push for a socialist feminist approach throughout all of the chapter’s work.

Defend Abortion

The Supreme Court has thrown away 50 years of precedent by overturning Roe and Casey. More than half of states have laws or constitutional amendments that make it certain or likely that they will attempt to ban or severely restrict abortion, and 13 states have ‘trigger’ laws that automatically ban abortion once Roe is overturned. While this is a blatant, deadly, and undemocratic attack on the working class (particularly against low-income people of color and those living in red states), it would likely only mark the beginning of a right-wing rollback of Supreme Court decisions that enshrined basic queer and civil rights. Our bodies, our lives, our rights, and our democracy are on the line.

Our autonomy should not depend on the whims of nine unelected lifetime appointments but on the democratic will of the people. Join us in fighting back against these attacks.
