Announcing the winner of the Nation Button Contest!

Columnist Katha Pollitt has been chosen to receive a 2004 Woman of Power and Influence Award by the New York City chapter of the National Organization for Women. The awards are given to women “who have demonstrated through their actions a commitment to feminist values, and who have utilized their position, their stature and their expertise in their fields to effect positive change for women.” Pollitt was singled out for her “extraordinary journalism.” Past recipients include former Congresswoman Liz Holtzman and Nation columnist Patricia J. Williams.

Thank you for reading The Nation

We hope you enjoyed the story you just read, just one of the many incisive, deeply-reported articles we publish daily. Now more than ever, we need fearless journalism that shifts the needle on important issues, uncovers malfeasance and corruption, and uplifts voices and perspectives that often go unheard in mainstream media.

Throughout this critical election year and a time of media austerity and renewed campus activism and rising labor organizing, independent journalism that gets to the heart of the matter is more critical than ever before. Donate right now and help us hold the powerful accountable, shine a light on issues that would otherwise be swept under the rug, and build a more just and equitable future.

For nearly 160 years, The Nation has stood for truth, justice, and moral clarity. As a reader-supported publication, we are not beholden to the whims of advertisers or a corporate owner. But it does take financial resources to report on stories that may take weeks or months to properly investigate, thoroughly edit and fact-check articles, and get our stories into the hands of readers.

Donate today and stand with us for a better future. Thank you for being a supporter of independent journalism.
