How to Talk to Little Girls

I went to a dinner party at a friend’s home last weekend, and met her five-year-old daughter for the first time. Little Maya was all curly brown hair, doe-like dark eyes, and adorable in her shiny pink nightgown. I wanted to squeal, “Maya, you’re so cute! Look at you! Turn around and model that pretty ruffled gown, you gorgeous thing!”

Campaign for Southern Equality Statement on U.S. Supreme Court Ruling in Masterpiece Cake v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission

Asheville, N.C. (June 4, 2018) – Today’s U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Masterpiece Cake v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission represents a narrow response to the facts of this Colorado case and departs from longstanding precedent by granting a single Colorado business the right to discriminate. The Court did not rule that there is a right to discriminate: this ruling does not apply to businesses in other states and does not invalidate non-discrimination laws that protect LGBTQ people.

For many, Friday’s vote was not just the culmination of months of campaigning, but years of pushing for change.

Three decades ago, Anne Marie Keary was threatened with jail, burdened with legal bills and grappling with abuse and threats that poured down her phone, because she had published phone numbers for British abortion clinics in a student welfare guide.
