    The Cut ^ | November 26, 2018 | Allison P. Davis
    One morning, about three weeks after we’d first met, Lena Dunham sent me ten text messages in a row. She was in the hospital, recovering from a procedure to remove her right ovary, “which was encased in scar tissue & fibrosis, attached to my bowel and pressing on nerves that made it kinda hard to walk/pee/vamp,” as she’d later explain on Instagram. She sent me a post-op photo of herself in bed, a red bracelet that read NO BENZODIAZEPINES dangling from her wrist, hospital gown hiked up, her medical mesh panties out. She sent more photos, all with little captions...

    ‘The historic case involves minor girls from Michigan, Illinois and Minnesota, including some who cried, screamed and bled during the procedure and one who was given Valium ground in liquid Tylenol to keep her calm, court records show.’ (Snip) ‘The judge’s ruling also dismissed charges against three mothers, including two Minnesota women whom prosecutors said tricked their 7-year-old daughters into thinking they were coming to metro Detroit for a girls’ weekend, but instead had their genitals cut at a Livonia clinic as part of a religious procedure.’

    A Wells Fargo executive who reportedly referred to women bank employees as "girls" or told them to put their "big girl panties on" will step down next year. Without addressing claims made against him, Wells Fargo confirmed that private bank head Jay Welker would retire effective March 31. His coming retirement was first reported by the Wall Street Journal, which cited an internal memo. A complaint against Welker was part of a larger internal investigation into allegations of discrimination by female executives in Wells Fargo's wealth management unit, the newspaper said. The bank spent months interviewing dozens of women after...

    A group of high school 'mean girls' have admitted to targeting and falsely accusing a boy of sexual assault because they 'just don't like him'. A 26-page federal lawsuit was filed in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, on the eve of October 3 - also known as Mean Girls Day in tribute to the 2004 cult classic - against a clique of five girls at Seneca Valley High School. The boy's parents describe the clique as 'mean girls' who 'conspired in person and via electronic communication devices to falsely accuse [their son] of sexual assault on two occasions.' Their son, referred to in...

    A war monitoring group says Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) fighters seized 36 women and children during simultaneous attacks on the southeastern province of Sweida last week.

Reports on social media suggest ISIS has sent photos of some of the kidnapped women, most of them from the minority Druze sect prevalent in Sweida, to their families in via WhatsApp. The...

    Last night, a young man opened fire on people enjoying a night out in Toronto’s Greektown neighborhood. Numerous people were hit; two of his victims died — an 18-year-old woman and a 10-ear-old girl. The shooter, identified as 29-year-old Toronto resident Faisal Hussain, was found dead shortly after a gunfight with police; it’s not clear if he was killed by the police or if he took his own life. As of yet, we don’t know the shooter’s motive, but given his choice of targets — people out socializing on a summer night in a neighborhood known for its many restaurants...

    A 15-year-old girl who was forcibly separated from her mother after fleeing to the U.S. from El Salvador described to a Washington State investigator how she was crammed into a windowless room with 60 other girls and deprived of proper sleep or food for three days. The room was divided by wire fencing into three cages, with each one holding 20 separated girls -- some as young as 3 years old, according to an affidavit filed late Monday (July 2) in federal court in Seattle. The girls, who weren't told when they'd see their parents again, called it the "icebox."...

    New York Times ^ | June 13, 2018 | CLAIRE CAIN MILLER and KEVIN QUEALY
    In much of the country, the stereotype that boys do better than girls at math isn’t true – on average, they perform about the same, at least through eighth grade. But there’s a notable exception. In school districts that are mostly rich, white and suburban, boys are much more likely to outperform girls in math, according to a new study from Stanford researchers, one of the most comprehensive looks at the gender gap in test scores at the school district level. The research, based on 260 million standardized test scores for third through eighth graders in nearly every district in...

    The second comes from The Atlantic’s Emma Green. Detailing the findings of a survey conducted by her magazine and the Public Religion Research Institute, she notes that 61 percent of white working-class men view college as a “risky gamble.” Green’s report contained this explanation: “The enduring narrative of the American dream is that if you study and get a college education and work hard, you can get ahead,” said Robert P. Jones, the CEO of PRRI. “The survey shows that many white working-class Amer­icans, especially men, no longer see that path available to them. . . . It is this sense of economic fatalism,...

    For Hispanic girls in Mexico, Puerto Rico, Cuba, the United States and elsewhere, the 15th birthday marks the most lavish celebration of their lives. Designating a girl’s transition from childhood to adulthood, the quinceañera is a two-part festivity that traces back to both indigenous and European cultural traditions and has become an increasingly opulent affair in recent years. Parents may even spend more on their daughters' "Sweet 15" quinceañeras than their weddings, in fact, which is why some refer them as mini bodas, or miniature weddings. Not counting the birthday presents a young girl might receive, a low-end quinceañera in...

    "Teen Vogue takes teen girls seriously and understands that style and substance aren’t mutually exclusive," says the former Democratic presidential nominee. Teen Vogue's "woke" coverage of sociopolitical issues over the past two years has drawn ire from critics (Tucker Carlson among the most vocal), but with its latest cover star, the glossy just proved that its expanded focus is more than just a phase. The title secured Hillary Clinton as a guest editor and cover star for a special edition of the Conde Nast publication, which hits newsstands Dec. 5. Additionally, it was announced that she will serve as the...

    There’s a persistent trope in science fiction and fantasy about a society consisting solely of women. It’s a peaceful and prosperous society, free from all violence. There may be some female warriors, who are somehow better than all male warriors everywhere despite having no real pressure or battles to harden themselves on. As a female reader with a strong taste for rational thinking, I am begging authors to stop doing this. Every female over the age of seven knows that a planet full of only women would not be peaceful. Every female Odd will picture this situation as The Special...

  • Girls do not like to date nice boys

    They just don't. In my high school years, I was Richie Cunningham. The earnest young boy from "Happy Days" who always was looking to please others, especially the adults in his life. As a result, we were walked all over, taken advantage of and subsequently, not dated by girls. Now Richie Cunningham might have had a girlfriend or two during the fictitious "Happy Days" run but in my real-life Richie Cunningham phase, I had zero girlfriends. I did have several dates that went disastrously wrong because I thought dating was all about being a nice guy. It wasn't. During that...
