  • Women activists cross DMZ to mixed reception on South Korean side

    MSN ^ | 5/24/2015 | James Pearson
    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 Women’s 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 Reagan’s 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 women’s...

    UNITED NATIONS — Making a dramatic statement in Korean relations, Gloria Steinem and other prominent women on Wednesday announced their intention to walk across the demilitarized zone between North and South Korea to call for reunification. The DMZ is the world's most fortified border, with the two countries still technically at war. Hundreds of thousands of soldiers face off across the heavily mined zone. Organizers of the effort called on Wednesday said they hope for 30 women, including two Nobel Peace laureates, to cross from North Korea to South Korea on May 24, which is International Women's Day...
  • Feminist Writer Can’t Stand Republican Women

    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...

    President Barack Obama has named sixteen recipients of the Presidential Medal of Freedom, which is the nation’s highest civilian honor. Abortion activist Gloria Steinem will be one of the recipients. The Presidential Medal of Freedom is “presented to individuals who have made especially meritorious contributions to the security or national interests of the United States, to world peace, or to cultural or other significant public or private endeavors,” and Obama apparently believes dedicating one’s life to promoting abortion is a part of that list. Obama said “The Presidential Medal of Freedom goes to men and women who have dedicated their...

    Gloria Steinem, Jesse Jackson, Bonnie Raitt and Jay Leno have joined prison hunger strikers in calling for an end to California's use of solitary confinement to control prison gang violence. The civil rights crusaders, singer and late-night comedian are among those who signed a letter sent Monday to Gov. Jerry Brown. The letter calls isolation units "extensions of the same inhumanity practiced at Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo Bay." The letter to Brown, to be followed by a demonstration Tuesday at the Capitol, was arranged by the National Religion Campaign Against Torture and local supporters of the prison protesters. The organization,...

Though advocates have made headway in their fight to bring issues like domestic violence to the forefront, it is precisely because of that progress that the country finds itself in a period of backlash, the celebrated writer and activist told reporters Wednesday before her keynote address at the Texas Council on Family Violence's state conference. "We have the majority support on all the issues we care about," she...

    Influence is neutral. By itself it means having a profound effect on something, but that something can be good or bad. Therefore, I can’t argue with Time Magazine’s list of The 20 Most Influential Americans of All Time that happens to include the person who has most influenced the destruction of humanity, Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger. I have to agree with Time’s assessment that she is one of the most influential Americans of all time because her negative influence has been responsible for the deaths of millions, far exceeding that of Hitler’s influence in World War II, whom we...

A 1956 Smith alumna, Steinem, 75, told in her speech of how, as a member of the Smith College board, she and then-Smith president Ruth Simmons imagined a merger of Smith and Radcliffe in the late 1990s, shortly before the formation of the Institute. Steinem saw Radcliffe, as it negotiated with Harvard,...

Industry ideologues are loathe to admit the fact, but they truly believe the cause of partner abuse is patriarchal oppression. Not convinced?

    Sarah Palin shares nothing but a chromosome with Hillary Clinton. She is Phyllis Schlafly, only younger. Here's the good news: Women have become so politically powerful that even the anti-feminist right wing -- the folks with a headlock on the Republican Party -- are trying to appease the gender gap with a first-ever female vice president. We owe this to women -- and to many men too -- who have picketed, gone on hunger strikes or confronted violence at the polls so women can vote. We owe it to Shirley Chisholm, who first took the "white-male-only" sign off the White...

Why? “It’s not an independent position, to put it mildly. I would rather see her as the president of the Senate.” For most of this decade, the conventional wisdom has had...

Amid this week's hullabaloo over embryonic stem cell (ESC) research, which culminated in President Bush's veto of a bill overriding his limitations on federal funding of such research, curiosity got the better of me and I wondered what PETA's position, if any, might be regarding the controversy. I assumed that PETA most likely opposed ESC research since it necessarily involves the sacrifice of animal lives as well as human embryos. Au...

    Well, they wanted it all and they got it all. Since the 1960's, radical feminists have been telling American women they needed to be more like men. Women were told they needed to be sexually liberated, like men. Women were told they could raise a family on their own, have a career and, basically, have it all, like men. The sad result of this mantra has led to some societal ills that will probably never be reversed. "No fault divorce" has vastly increased the number of single-parent households which has led to a multitude of children who, essentially, raise themselves....

Speaking to more than 900 people, Steinem said that the recent landmark legislation in South Dakota to ban abortions in almost all circumstances was not even the will of the state's own voters, according to polls there. She said that the majority of "the hopes and dreams that are uniquely ours" are the same dreams...

He replies, "We need to remind the women of Islam ceaselessly: Our enemies are the same as theirs; our victory will be theirs as well." Well, the neoconservative cause "of female emancipation in the Muslim world" was probably set back a bit by the photo shoot of Pfc. Lynndie England and the "Girls Gone Wild" of Abu Ghraib prison. Indeed, the filmed orgies among...

    Iraqi Abuse Photos Proudly Proves Women Can Be As Primeval As Men 5/10/2004 - Marni Malarkey Ms.Magazine founder and feminist icon Gloria Steinem has sharply criticized the US media for "missing the point" about the prison abuse scandal at Abu Ghraid in Iraq. Abu Ghraid, a former centre of torture used by the regime of Saddam Hussein, came into focus this month when pictures of American soldiers sexually abusing and humiliating Iraqi detainees there made the front pages. "The media has been obsessing over 'responsibility' and 'firing Rummy' and so forth," said Steinem, rolling her eyes as she spoke to...
  • 10 Questions For Gloria Steinem

    Like the women's-rights movement she has helped lead since the 1970S, Gloria Steinem has come a long way. Proudly single until four years ago, when she married environmentalist David Bale, she became a widow in December when he died of brain lymphoma. TIME's Sonja Steptoe talked with Steinem, who turned 70 last week, and found her just as engaged as ever. THE EDITOR IN CHIEF OF MS. MAGAZINE CAME TO THE DEFENSE OF MARTHA STEWART, SAYING "THIS WAS NOT A SERIOUS CASE THAT PROTECTED AMERICANS AGAINST CRIMINALS. THIS WAS A BITCH HUNT." DO YOU AGREE? It was selective prosecution. The...

    Not In Our Name and the World Wide Terrorism WebBy Michael | March 19, 2003 In the run-up to this war, Not In Our Name became one of the major “peace” organizers and coalitions in the United States. Not In Our Name has spared no cost purchasing ads in newspapers around the world to publish its anti-American Statement of Conscience.  Its signatories include scores of Hate America bigwigs, like Noam Chomsky, Howard Zinn, Michael Parenti, Gloria Steinem and Barbara Kingsolver.  Hollywood icons (and many more has-beens) like Danny Glover, Jessica Lange, Tyne Daly, Martin Sheen and Ed Harris have...

    Study shows marriage is the safest place for women and children"Love ‘em and leave ‘em" the old saying goes. The new power women of the 90’s –– from ‘Charlie’s Angels’ to the working women of HBO’s ‘Sex in the City’ –– jump in and out of bed with the hot man of the moment, no strings attached, before proceeding to conquer the world. Women like Rachel, the independent single mom, on the popular sitcom ‘Friends,’ choose not to marry the father, but rather strive to prove they can make it on their own. According to the typical script, they all...

    Last week marked nine months since the terrorist attacks in New York and Washington and the week went off without a hitch. Well sort of. But there are some who have failed to grasp the obvious: there is a war going on. On Friday there was no warnings to report, and it is shameful to think that we don't even blink when another 12 people die, this time in a suicide bomber attack in Pakistan. But there was something worse. The Guardian printed a statement entitled "We won't deny our consciences" signed, apparently, by some "prominent" Americans. "In our name,"...
  • FEMINISTS Defend The Gay Priests Crimes: "It's Almost Natural..."

    Egads. I was aware that mainstream Feminists, such as the members of the National Organization for Women, NARAL, and Voters For Choice enjoyed defending filicide and abortion. Whether it's a baby being drowned, a la Andrea Yates, or Planned Parenthood dismembering prenatal innocents, Feminists are really into the whole killer mom motif. They like it, it thrills them. Thankfully, there are millions of good women like those at the extraordinary Concerned Women for America, whom I adore, who are better than that.  But the nihilistic Feminist crowd still obsessively plunges into degeneracy. Just recently, their deified icon, Gloria "I...

    Gloria Steinem, who has led the feminist movement for decades, lashed out this weekend at the Catholic Church and blamed the pedophile scandal on its male-dominated hierarchy – a structure she also blamed for creating Adolf Hitler. Speaking at a charity luncheon for the YWCA of Palm Beach County, Fla., this past Friday, Steinem began her speech by saying, "I hardly know where to begin." "To create a hierarchy of authority and sanctity and then suppress sexuality as a natural form of expression and subject these men to total control," Steinem said, "well, it's almost natural that some of them...
