October 2020 Table of Contents

The October theme is on Gatekeeping — who decides what the values and priorities are, and how are women working to change those tables of power?

Quote of the Month
Regular voters tend to think of government not as an alien or oppressive force but as an extension of themselves and their communities. Frequent voters are more likely to see taxes not as illegitimate theft but as the rightful cost of government’s work, and to understand how that work benefits them and their neighbors. 
— Joan Anderson Growe
