1) What feminist issues do you think are particular to rural women?

When I lived in Columbus, OH there was a feminist group that covertly provided rides and money for young women seeking abortions. It was illegal to do this and may still be, but these women knew that other women did not have access to transportation and that the drives were very long from some more rural parts of Ohio. This was one of the most amazing groups of people to me, it really stood out.

In general I would say public education is something every feminist should care about but I would imagine it's really important in places where there are no private school options.

Family planning should be one of the most important issues on the radar for both men and women, as fertility and a family's ability to determine how many children are had is crucial to participating in our country economically.
