Comic: Feminist Workout

By Anna Greer

I was protesting at the Supreme Court in support of Whole Woman’s Health when I realized that anti-abortion people have no upper-body strength and can’t hold up their signs for very long. Feminism is hard work. The fight for social justice isn’t a sprint, but a very, very, very long marathon.
