my new shero!

Cecilia Fire Thunder is my newest shero: Not only is she the first woman president of the South Dakota Ogala Sioux, she is taking on South Dakota's abortion ban (the draconian law with no exceptions for rape and incest).
President Thunder says she will personally set up a clinic on her tribe's land in South Dakota to preserve a woman's right to choose, according to Rose Aguilar's interview with her at www.alternet.org/story/34314. She articulates the rural women's plight when it comes to reproductive health (among other things).
