Warning: the article linked below is long. But it's a fascinating read about a women who became a feminist icon overnight by championing abortion rights during a filibuster on the Texas statehouse floor. She's started an organization whose goals and mission are so closely aligned with WHAMGlobal, it seems like a sister effort...though Davis has her sights on the full range of gender equities inclusive of health care.

There's a lengthy interview with Davis published in Vox, "Wendy Davis on why women need to drop the "being nice" act: For feminism’s future, former Texas state Sen. Wendy Davis says it’s time to set the stage for women to succeed." It reports: "As women strike, march, and embrace electoral politics in unprecedented numbers, Davis is ready for the future of feminism. She says now is the time for women to show their power to resist assaults on their rights and to strategically move forward together."
