Here is what you have told us so far:

"Mandate that business provide 12 weeks of paid maternity and paternity leave"
- Bridgette from Washington, DC

"We need to revive the 1980's discussion of comparable work and start a legislative imitative addressing this…" - Margo from Illinois
"Help lesbian women in the military by repealing 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' … legalizing gay marriage… start[ing] a national ad campaign promoting equal distribution of household labor… lower[ing] the work week from 40 hours a week to 36 hours a week…" - Azzurra
"Single payer health care not attached to a job!" - Nora
"Finally, pass the ERA" - Jean from Washington, DC
Our Fall issue also includes Gloria Steinem's 75th - birthday wishes (true to Gloria, they are wishes for feminism's future!) and an original poem about Gloria by Alice Walker. Make sure that you get this exciting and iconic issue of Ms.
