    IS THIS REALLY WHAT WE’RE TALKING ABOUT TODAY? Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee – who is still waiting for God to tell him whether to run for president in 2016 – offered up some interesting thoughts regarding the politics of gender this week. “I think it’s time Republicans no longer accept listening to the Democrats talk about a ‘war on women,’” Huckabee said Thursday during a Republican National Committee gathering in Washington, D.C. “The fact is the Republicans don’t have a war on women, they have a war for women, to empower them to be something other than victims of...
  • California Bill Would Allow Students to Use Bathrooms 'Consistent with His or Her Gender Identity'

    A proposed law introduced in the California State legislature would allow public school children to use bathrooms designated for members of the opposite sex, if that students' "gender identity" differed from the students biological sex. Assembly Bill 1266, introduced by Democratic Assemblyman Tom Ammiano, who represents a section of the city of San Francisco would: "...require that a pupil be permitted to participate in sex-segregated school programs and activities, including athletic teams and competitions, and use facilities consistent with his or her gender identity, irrespective of the gender listed on the pupil's record." While the bill does not specifically mention...

    Washington — With this fall's midterm elections, the number of women serving in Congress could drop for the first time in a generation. If large numbers of Democratic incumbents lose in November, as expected, many women could be replaced by men. The prospect of a setback has advocates of women's rights in disbelief, but determined to try to prevent it. "That is not going to happen," said Terry O'Neill, president of the National Organization for Women. Many of the vulnerable Democratic women this fall first arrived on the waves of the 2006 and 2008 elections, but now face tough odds...

    HENDERSON, Nev. -- In a complete shift of focus, Palin today devoted almost her entire speech here to women’s issues, suggesting Obama is guilty of gender inequality. Palin’s argument was both personal and political Tuesday: She made an appeal to break a glass ceiling herself, as she accused Obama of overlooking a woman for a promotion by not choosing Hillary Clinton as his running mate. “You've got to ask yourself: Why was Sen. Hillary Clinton not even vetted by the Obama campaign?” she said at an outdoor rally outside of Las Vegas. “Why did it take 24 years, an entire...

    Gender Up Ender I'll admit I didn't watch the Democratic debates the other night, it's not that I'm not interested, it's just that the field right now is so crowded with people who have about as much chance of being president as they do of winning the lottery. I think the early primaries are a good thing as it narrows the field down to the people who are actually going to run and gives them more time to actually state their opinions on issues and less time to hide behind platitudes and inanities. But I digress getting back to the...

    Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton is looking for sympathy, support and political cover as her rivals show the temerity to run aggressively against the Democratic presidential front-runner. But don't feel sorry for her — Clinton is no stranger to "piling on." In fact, she's an expert at it. Ask anybody who stood on the marble floor of the state Capitol rotunda in 1990 and heard the click, clack, click of her low-heeled shoes approach the news conference of Tom McRae, a mild-mannered public servant who had the nerve to challenge then-Gov. Bill Clinton of Arkansas for re-election. "Tom!" the state's first...

    Women are being filtered out of high-level science, math and engineering jobs in the United States, and there is no good reason for it, according to a National Academies report released on Monday. A committee of experts looked at all the possible excuses — biological differences in ability, hormonal influences, childrearing demands, and even differences in ambition — and found no good explanation for why women are being locked out. "Compared with men, women faculty members are generally paid less and promoted more slowly, receive fewer honors, and hold fewer leadership positions," the Academies said in a statement. "These discrepancies...

The manifesto: "2006 Feminist Initiative Election Manifesto Election year 2006. A Feminist Initiative in politics is needed; - because women on average have 4,300 Swedish kronor less than the men in their wallets every month, in spite of the fact that women work just as much as men because 46 percent of all women at some point in their lives have suffered physical or sexual violence, or threats of violence by a man and because many...

    07/12/2006 Gender-based admissions tailoring needs mending By: Gerry Garibaldi In its landmark 2003 affirmative action decision, Grutter v. Bollinger, the Supreme Court upheld the use of narrowly tailored race-conscious admission policies to achieve a "critical mass," citing the educational benefits that flow from a diverse student body. But it seems that the definition of narrow tailoring depends on who's holding the scissors. Advertisement Should the Grutter decision apply to gender-conscious admissions as well? The tailors at the University of Connecticut School of Medicine appear to think so. Admissions figures for the entering Class of 2005, obtained in response to a...

    How the Schools Shortchange Boys, by Gerry Garibaldi In the newly feminized classroom, boys tune out. Since I started teaching several years ago, after 25 years in the movie business, I’ve come to learn firsthand that everything I’d heard about the feminization of our schools is real—and far more pernicious to boys than I had imagined. Christina Hoff Sommers was absolutely accurate in describing, in her 2000 bestseller, The War Against Boys, how feminist complaints that girls were “losing their voice” in a male-oriented classroom have prompted the educational establishment to turn the schools upside down to make them more...

There is no denying NY Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton has the intelligence,presence, determination,and political connections to be a viable candidate for President in 2008. Picture,if you will,this scenario.The Democratic Party responds favorably to the idea of a woman in the Oval Office,and,out of the blue,the one woman who could compete with Hillary Clinton-Condaleeza Rice-announces she would be delighted to serve as Senator Clinton's running mate!The announcement takes the world by storm.

    Harvard University professors confronted president Lawrence H. Summers at a tense meeting yesterday, with several questioning whether he could continue to effectively lead the university after his remarks on women in science brought into public view simmering discontent with his presidency, according to several faculty members who attended the session. 'snip' The dominant theme of the meeting was that Summers's comments on women were a last straw for those faculty members who contend that he has seized too much power, insulted professors and ignored their opinions, and embarrassed Harvard with repeated gaffes ranging from his public spat with prominent African-American...

    BOSTON - The new police chiefs in four of the nation's largest cities — Boston, San Francisco, Milwaukee and Detroit — share some similar credentials. All boast more than two decades of police experience. All have worked their way up the ranks. And all are women. Some say it's just coincidence that four women within six months have been named to the top police position in four major cities, a natural evolution two decades after consent decrees and affirmative action cases forced departments to hire more women. But others say a shifting paradigm in policing — from an emphasis on...

    Two years ago, at the Beijing+5 U.N. Women 2000 Conference, European development agencies threatened to withhold funds from Nicaragua because Max Padilla, head of the Nicaraguan Ministry for the Family, insisted on defining gender by its common meaning of "male and female."The European agencies defined "gender" as a social construct that included gays and the transgendered. Desperately poor and unable to risk losing foreign aid, Nicaragua fired Padilla. This was not the first time world agencies had attempted to impose a politically correct gender agenda on a resisting nation, nor was it the last. Recent pronouncements by the World Bank...
