Haitian-Canadian author Myriam Chancy clarifies the richness and spirit of Haiti, especially that of women. "There's great strength one can take from these women...Our history tells us it is possible to survive, to have a will, despite how Haiti is portrayed. Our culture, our spirit gives us no choice. We have to endure and that's the heart of Haiti." Also: poetry and music with Lenelle Moise and Emeline Michel.

Birthright: Obstacles and information on homebirth

You've heard us examine the issue of choice many times here on Bread and Roses, usually in the context of reproductive freedoms and the abortion issue. As feminists we believe it's every woman's choice to determine what happens with her body. And this goes not just for the choice to HAVE a child, but for the choice of HOW that child is born. Here in Oregon, we are blessed to have the option to birth at home, in a comfortable and safe setting that fosters family bonding.
