Get out your buttons, bumper stickers, hats, and banners and join us for #ElectionCollection, a weekly challenge to feature your campaign memorabilia!

The Presidential Libraries of the National Archives and American Experience PBS invite you to share your stories and election memorabilia. Starting tomorrow, we’ll publish a new #ElectionCollection challenge every Tuesday on Instagram from July 26 until the Presidential election on November 8.

We can’t wait to see if you have drawers full of slogan-covered buttons or if your mom saved that can of (Barry) Goldwater. (It was a real beverage! Stay tuned.)

No Más Bebés: New PBS Documentary Reveals Population Control Of “Poor Who Cannot Adequately Feed Or Clothe The Children They Already Have”

Mothers like Consuelo Hermosillo were in labor when medical staff urged signed consent for a “life saving” treatment. Unbeknown to the mothers, doctors performed a tubal ligation, by clamping, cutting or burning of the fallopian tubes without disclosing the exact procedure.

A small group of Mexican immigrant women sued county doctors, the state and the U.S. government after they were sterilized while giving birth at Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center during the late 1960s and early 1970s.

THIS. Stephen Colbert hosts The Guerrilla Girls, further proving how smart he is. Almost any host would have made a mess of this interview, but he takes them seriously and asks great questions. 

As you may know, the Guerrilla Girls are my heroes and part of our FIERCE WOMEN OF ART video. 

I find it very odd to be recognized. I’ve spent a very long time without that happening to me. And it’s a very, very strange sensation. … Sometimes it’s very nice.
