Our Mission

WE ARE a non-partisan group of journalists and writers who founded this site to chronicle every act and every bit of harm that the so-called Republican War on Women and the Trump Administration do to women, women of color, low-income families and color- and gender-diverse families and marginalized communities.

WE ENVISION this site as the one place on the internet where this path will be scrutinized in great detail and preserved for a long time after the Administration is over.

WE INVITE women and families, Democrats and Republicans, being harmed by Trump Administration cuts to come here to share their stories. We invite researchers who need to find every single instance of harm (every single budget cut or anti-woman law passed) to use this website as a go-to resource.

Eventually, the independent journalists who founded this website hope to set up an investigative unit to break stories about the damage done to federal programs created to support women and diverse communities. We will also attempt to out every instance of personal abuse of and misconduct involving women undertaken by appointees to the Administration and in Congress. So please keep your eye on this page and share your stories with our like-minded, bi-partisan community.
