Dear Democracy Now! visitor,

You turn to Democracy Now! for ad-free news you can trust. Maybe you come for our daily headlines. Maybe you come for in-depth stories that expose corporate and government abuses of power. Democracy Now! brings you crucial reporting like our coverage from the front lines of the Dakota Access pipeline protests or news about this unprecedented US presidential election—and our coverage is never paid for by the oil and gas companies or the campaigns and superPACs. We produce our daily news hour at a fraction of the budget of a commercial news operation—all without ads, government funding or corporate sponsorship. How? This model of news depends on your support. Today, less than 1% of our visitors support Democracy Now! with a donation each year. If even 3% of our website visitors donated just $8 per month, we could cover our basic operating expenses for a year. Pretty amazing right? If you visit us daily or weekly or even just once a month, now is a great time to make your monthly contribution.

Non-commercial news needs your support.

We rely on contributions from you, our viewers and listeners to do our work. If you visit us daily or weekly or even just once a month, now is a great time to make your monthly contribution.

Please do your part today.

Naomi Wolf

in our Washington studios. Feminist writer, the author of two books: Fire with Fire and The Beauty Myth

Katha Pollitt

contributing editor, The Nation in New York

Feminist writer Naomi Wolf is the author of two books: Fire with Fire and The Beauty Myth. Wolf has sparked a heated debate within the feminist community following the publication of an article in the New Republic called "Our Bodies, Our Souls," which criticizes the pro-choice movement for lacking an ethical core and calls on the movement to re-think its rhetoric. More specifically, she say the abortion rights movement must "mourn the evil that is abortion." But some feminists are angry that her new position on abortion will empower the anti-choice movement and perhaps affect public policy on this issue.
