  • Lands’ End apologizes for Steinem profile, but not tote bag fundraising

    The clothing company Lands’ End has apologized for recently featuring longtime pro-abortion activist Gloria Steinem on its website and catalog as a “legend” for her work on women’s equality. The profile centered around Steinem’s work for the Equal Rights Amendment in the 1970s and 80s, not abortion. However, more recent versions of the ERA have been interpreted as potentially invalidating various pro-life state laws. “One reason we need an Equal Rights Amendment is because nowhere in the Constitution does the word ‘women’ appear,” Steinem told Lands’ End. “We need a constitutional principle of female equality.” “We understand that some of...

    At least two religious schools said they will stop buying uniforms from the clothing company Lands’ End this week because it honored abortion activist Gloria Steinem in its spring catalog and created a campaign to donate to Steinem’s organization. Tolton Catholic High School and the College of the Ozarks, both in Missouri, said they were disgusted that the company would honor the well-known abortion activist who once said women “need” abortion. Earlier this month, Lands’ End published an interview and photo-shoot with Steinem on its website (see images below) and in its spring catalog, highlighting Steinem’s work to pass an...

    Just a few hours after LifeNews posted a story about Lands’ End honoring pro-abortion feminist Gloria Steinem and collecting donations for her organization, a flood of criticism from pro-lifers prompted the clothing company to removed all references to Steinem from its website. Earlier this month, Lands’ End published an interview and photo-shoot with Steinem on its website (see images below) and in its spring catalog, highlighting Steinem’s work to pass an Equal Rights Amendment (ERA), which could expand abortion in the U.S. Steinem is a well-known abortion activist who once said women “need” abortion.

However, this grab at ersatz identity in the middle of the MSNBC townhall last night by Bernie Sanders exposes the more mundane lack of authenticity seen on the trail.

    The feminist movement is dead. It died at the hands of Gloria Steinem. Cause of death was political strangulation. Gloria Steinem had made a name for herself for purporting to be a voice for women's rights beginning in the 60's and 70's. She was an icon for women for a long time but has repeatedly compromised her alleged principles for politics and her biases finally overtook her. Limbaugh's "feminazi" term has never been more appropriate. I began to loathe Steinem for her painful hypocrisy in the 90's when she (and HIllary) went Tammy Wynette during the Bill Clinton Presidency. She...

    Days after two of Hillary Clinton's most prominent female surrogates, Madeleine K. Albright and Gloria Steinem, drew fire for their comments about young women supporting Senator Bernie Sanders, another Clinton surrogate proposed that the two women be pulled from campaigning for Mrs. Clinton. On a conference call with elected officials supporting Mrs. Clinton on Tuesday, Deb Goldberg, the Massachusetts state treasurer, suggested that Ms. Albright and Ms. Steinem be "kept away" from Mrs. Clinton's campaign, according to a person briefed on the call who could only discuss the private conversations without attribution.

The actress and model, 24, struck back at feminist icon Gloria Steinem's recent statement suggesting young women are only backing presidential candidate Bernie Sanders to connect with the opposite sex — as debate rages over female voters' sense of obligation to support Hillary Clinton.

    Hillary Clinton’s older feminist supporters have a message for young women who are not backing her candidacy: Shame on you. Women were expected to help power Mrs. Clinton to the Democratic nomination, but as she struggles to overcome a tough challenge from Senator Bernie Sanders, her support among them has been surprisingly shaky. Young women, in particular, have been drawn to the septuagenarian socialist from Vermont, and the dynamic has disappointed feminists who dreamed of Mrs. Clinton’s election as a capstone to the movement. Two feminist icons of Mrs. Clinton’s generation made their frustration known over the weekend, calling on...

    During the 2008 presidential campaign, Republican Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin referred to Madeline Albright's somewhat well-known saying, found on a Starbucks coffee cup, that "There's a special place in Hell for women who don't help other women." At the time, Albright, who served as Secretary of State under Bill Clinton, huffed: "Though I am flattered that Governor Palin has chosen to cite me as a source of wisdom, what I said had nothing to do with politics." She naturally followed that statement with an intense political attack on Palin and GOP presidential nominee John McCain. Now that Democrat Hillary...

So they behaved like 8," she said. ABC tried to offer some context as a means of explaining her strange comments, such as the fact that she grew up in an era where women often...

    North Korea on Friday endorsed a march by the feminist activist Gloria Steinem across the heavily fortified demilitarized zone (DMZ) that separates it from South Korea. The Associated Press reported that Steinem plans to lead an all-female march called Women Cross DMZ. Organizers now hope South Korea will also approve the journey, tentatively scheduled for May 24. [Snip] Ahn and the other organizers are using the walk to call on President Obama and the U.N. for a formal peace treaty ending the Korean War. That conflict ended in relative stalemate after an armistice in 1953.

The May 24 walk includes Nobel laureates, disarmament activists and U.S. feminist Gloria Steinem. On Friday The New York Times reported organizers received conditional approval for the walk from both Seoul and Pyongyang. Activists involved said they are calling for a permanent peace to replace the 1953 armistice agreement that stopped the Korean War but did not end tensions on the Korean peninsula. Cora Weiss, president of The Hague Appeal for Peace has said, "We're calling...

    During her speech at a Planned Parenthood of Central Oklahoma fundraiser on September 21, liberal feminist icon Gloria Steinem broached an uncomfortable topic for abortion proponents: the pandemic of missing girls. In 2011, that number was estimated to be 160 million. In her book, Unnatural selection: Choosing boys over girls, and the consequences of a world full of men, pro-abortion author Mara Hvistendahl, a correspondent for Science magazine, blamed ultrasound technology and abortion for the gendercide. This is simply common sense. I give Steinem points for raising the issue, particularly at a Planned Parenthood event, since it was only last...

After conceding that Hamas is intentionally making civilian casualties more likely, she said that it was nevertheless the case that those causalities are sapping Israel of its moral authority.

Having worked for President Jimmy Carter, I viewed the country through the prism of that experience when I served in the Clinton administration. Nevertheless, as secretary of state I felt it important to explore the possibility of developing a less chilly relationship with Iran. During my time in office, we offered to engage in dialogue, but the Iranians were not ready. In the end, although we improved the relationship on the margins, we failed to make much of a dent in the thick...

    Bill Clinton has lost his fastball. That's an emerging theme from this campaign season, and it was on glaring display on today's Morning Joe. Introducing a clip of Clinton [dressed like a lumberjack] attacking Bernie Sanders in New Hampshire, Mika Brzezinski said the ex-prez had picked up the "hatchet"--not a good image for a would-be statesman. After the clip aired, Joe Scarborough called it "painful." Mike Barnicle said it was a "cringe" moment, with Chuck Todd seconding the assessment. View the video here.

    Gloria Steinem thinks the United States is ready for a female commander in chief, but said during an interview on ABC News' "This Week" that "it is going to be hell." The activist and writer sat down with ABC News' Cokie Roberts to discuss her recently published book, "My Life on the Road," which chronicles her journeys around the world educating herself and others about the women's movement over a period of five decades. Steinem was an early Hillary Clinton supporter, but even as recently as 2008, she did not believe the country was ready for a woman to...

    Gloria Steinem doesn’t have her facts straight, but don’t expect the media to call her out on it. On Tuesday, feminist activist Gloria Steinem appeared as a guest on PBS’ Tavis Smiley. During the show, Steinem praised abortion for giving her “my life” and bashed the controversy surrounding Planned Parenthood’s practice of aborted baby parts. She blamed the “attack” on Planned Parenthood on everything from the “ultra-right wing” to “patriarchy” and a “long-term racist system.” Host Tavis Smiley hailed Steinem as a “feminist icon” and “renowned social activist” before asking about her newly published book, My Life on the Road....

    During an appearance on Fridays CBS This Morning to promote her latest book, far-left feminist Gloria Steinem eagerly blamed Rush Limbaugh for making the word feminism a bad word because he talks about feminazis everyday. Co-host Norah ODonnell teed up Steinem to bash Limbaugh by noting the Meryl Streep doesn't consider herself a feminist. She says she considers herself a humanist. Why is it that the feminist label do you think has that--" bad connotation?After Steinem bashed Limbaugh for allegedly making the word feminism a bad word she then claimed that most Americans actually identify as feminists themselves: But if...
  • Gloria Steinem eviscerates Carly Fiorina with scathing post on Facebook

    The surging candidates remarks on Planned Parenthood drew Steinems ire. Feminist icon Gloria Steinem blasted Carly Fiorina in a post on her Facebook page, saying the presidential hopefuls commentary on Planned Parenthood at the Republican debate last week was a 100 percent lie. I dare Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama to watch these tapes, Fiorina railed during the debate. Watch a fully formed fetus on the table, its heart beating, its legs kicking while someone says we have to keep it alive to harvest its brain. Fiorina was referring to a series of sting videos produced by the Center for Medical...

    A group of international women activists crossed the heavily-fortified Demilitarised Zone (DMZ) between North and South Korea on Sunday in what they said was a symbolic act for peace. North and South Korea are still technically at war after the 1950-53 Korean War ended in a truce, not a peace treaty. Despite its name the DMZ is one of the most heavily militarized and fortified borders in the world. "We feel very celebratory and positive that we have created a voyage across the DMZ in peace and reconciliation," said U.S. activist and feminist Gloria Steinem, honorary co-chair of the WomanCrossDMZ...

    Gloria Steinem is among 30 women activists marching from Beijing through the demilitarized zone dividing North and South Korea in a call for peace next Sunday. The event marks the International Womens Day for Peace and Disarmament. The 81-year-old activist told Reuters that it seems to me that the past of no contact has not worked, invoking former President Ronald Reagans call to tear down the Berlin Wall. We are saying: Take down this isolation, she said, according to the report, which also notes that the organizers will meet with North Korean women and tour a maternity hospital, a womens...

    Whether liberals would like to admit it or not; 2014 was a historic moment for women, especially Republican women. Besides it being a wave election, Republicans elected the first female senators from Iowa and West Virginia, the youngest woman ever elected to Congress, and the first black Republican woman–Mia Love–in Utah. Yet, these were Republican women; they’re a horrid subset of the human species beholden to their patriarchal masters according to feminists. Well, it all comes down to abortion–again–and this super-secret conspiracy to make life for American women–and women around the world–miserable (via the Guardian) [emphasis mine]: In a way, female...

    Among those who have just received the Medal of Freedom from President Obama is Gloria Steinem, who has done as much for advancing abortion-on-demand as any single person in the last half century. In an interview with The Washington Post, she said, Approximately one in three women in this country needs an abortion at some time in her life. Aside from the dubiousness of this statistic, note that she uses the term needs. Needs? Laura Enriquez has written convincingly on abortion as a preferential, not medically necessary, condition. What is clear is that what passes for need in the world...
