From Representative Mike Moon who videoed himself beheading a chicken to make a point about abortion to Senate Bill 5 which allows employers to fire employees who use birth control to the dangerous Senate Bill 43 which grants employers the legal protection to discriminate against female employees, LGBTQ+ employees, and people of color, Missouri’s recent legislation is intended to target women and the state’s most vulnerable citizens. Along with her progressive colleagues, State Representative Crystal Quade’s wondrously combative presence continuously counteracts these voices of oppression in a strongly red state.

Out of Missouri’s 163 State representatives, 46 are democrats and only 38 are women.
