The SAMPLE experiment at MIT-Bates provides measurements of parity-violating electron scattering at backward angles and low momentum transfer. These measurements yield unique information on the contribution of strange quarks to the magnetic moment of the proton and also electroweak corrections such as the anapole moment. Recent results, some possible interpretations, and outstanding issues for the future are discussed.
