Happy birthday, Martha Plimpton, actress (The Goonies! The Good Wife!) AND longtime women's right's activist — this year, Plimpton founded A Is For in response to the GOP's War on Women. (Woah, just realized that I haven't typed "War on Women" in like, a week. I know anti-choicers aren't actually going to come around on letting us make our own reproductive health decisions just because Obama and some other liberal politicians won (re)election, but still, what a nice little vacation from vag-hate!)

Here's a great video about why Plimpton thinks it's important to be an activist. Be cooler, thanks.

Have a great weekend!
