Alabama was the talk of the nation last week as the most restrictive abortion ban in the country became law.
But, missing from many of those conversations were the voices of women from the state.
Our news partners at AL.com and The Huntsville Times asked them to share their opinions on being a woman in Alabama. Over 200 people responded in less than 24 hours. Many chose to write about the new law, and others chose to speak more broadly about their experiences and perspectives.
I urge you to give this project by @reckonalabama and @aldotcom a look. This is something different, something outside the box from journalism done anywhere else in the country. This is not fake news, these are the voices of 200 women in Alabama. https://t.co/uTotzQQINt
