    Ivanka Trump has been involved in discussions with the World Bank about establishing a funding operation that would support female entrepreneurs, bank and administration officials said Wednesday. The officials stressed that nothing has been set up yet and that talks are ongoing about how this would be set up. They said it could be structured as a World Bank-run "facility," which accepts contributions from governments and private donors and then provides funding and support to women in developing countries. According to a senior administration official, Trump recently pitched the idea to World Bank Group President Jim Yong Kim, who then...

    An investigation by The Daily Beast about the New Hampshire state representative who was secretly behind The Red Pill (“the web’s most popular online destination for pickup artistry and men’s rights activists”) got me thinking about how desperate and pathetic these men are. The Red Pill (the term comes from The Matrix) teaches “sexual strategy,” according to the article, including tips on “how to practice ‘negging,’ a game tactic involving a backhanded compliment calculated to undermine confidence and make a woman more vulnerable to advances.”
  • In Blunt Talk at the Vatican, Sister Simone Campbell Blasts ‘Male Power’

    VATICAN CITY (RNS) Catholic activist Sister Simone Campbell has suggested that senior clergy at the Vatican are more preoccupied with power than confronting issues that affect the faithful, like clerical sexual abuse. The U.S. nun, leader of the “Nuns on the Bus” campaign that has toured America during recent election cycles, spoke frankly in an interview ahead of a conference being held at the Vatican on Wednesday (March 8) to celebrate women’s contributions to peace. “The institution and the structure is frightened of change,” Campbell told Religion News Service. “These men worry more about the form and the institution than...
  • Ohio Bookstore Flips Male-Authored Books, Displaying Them Backwards

    To draw attention to female authors, a Cleveland bookstore celebrated Women’s History Month by turning every male-written book in the fiction room backward on its shelf. Eight of the all-female employees of Loganberry Books went through about 10,000 books, a process that took about two hours. They’ll leave the books turned around for the next two weeks

    … The justices on Monday turned down an appeal from an Illinois man who failed the test after completing 29 out of 30 untimed pushups. Jay Bauer said it’s unfair that female trainees have to do only 14 pushups as part of the fitness test that includes situps, a 300-meter sprint and 1.5-mile run. …
  • Judge reinstates Brown Univ. student accused of sexual misconduct, blasts ‘organized’ pressure to ge

    Washington Post ^ | Fred Farbash
    A federal judge has reinstated a Brown University student after finding that the Ivy League school in Providence, R.I., improperly judged him responsible for sexual misconduct. The case was yet another example of the stresses confronted by colleges and universities, whose methods of adjudicating such cases have increasingly come under heavy fire for being too aggressive toward the accused, even as they are being pressured for not being aggressive enough. Indeed, the Brown case underscored how that tension has spread: It included an organized campaign by students supportive of the woman who brought the charge to pressure the judge into...
  • Trump’s interruptions of Clinton are familiar to women

    Call it “mansplaining,” “bropropriating,” or “Kanye at the VMAs,” women are familiar with being interrupted by men when they speak. So when Donald Trump repeatedly interrupted Hillary Clinton at Monday night’s debate — 51 times, according to Vox — it hit home for much of the audience. Women have been interrupted by men in professional settings for decades. Whether it’s Kanye West cutting off Taylor Swift at the MTV Video Music Awards or an executive halted midsentence by her peer in a corporate meeting, studies have found that men are more likely to block women from talking entirely, to correct...

    I was really looking forward to being dumber than my daughter. For the first 20 weeks of my pregnancy, my husband and I spun a collective daydream about our wise little girl: We pictured her walking through life with confidence and long, wavy hair, a perfect combination of my curly and my husband’s straight. She'd be his willing partner at museums, so gifted in math she could do her homework without my help. The dumbest, basest jokes, our favorite kind, would make her roll her eyes. The afternoon of my 20-week ultrasound, I left work early and got on the...

    FULL TITLE: Jennifer Lawrence blames herself for making less money than ‘the lucky people with d---s’: ‘I failed as a negotiator’ Jennifer Lawrence says she was paid less than her male "American Hustle" co-stars because she "failed as a negotiator" — and she believes that failure may have stemmed from a deeply-ingrained female fear of assertiveness. According to the Academy Award-winner, who discovered through the 2014 Sony email hacks that she and co-star Amy Adams had made less money than “the lucky people with d---s” (Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper and Jeremy Renner), her mistake was trying to avoid seeming "difficult" or "spoiled"...

    DES MOINES — Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and actress Ellen Page, of “Juno” fame, got into a testy and free-wheeling discussion Friday over gay rights here at the Iowa State Fair. “I’m happy to answer your question but not to have a back-and-forth debate,” Cruz told Page, as she pressed him about discrimination against LGBT citizens, approaching him as he flipped pork chops over an open grill. But the two then proceeded to have a spirited exchange over gay rights and whether private businesses — florist companies, for example —can refuse to cater gay weddings in the name of their...

    In a newly released interview, Taylor Swift said that she believes “misogyny is ingrained in people from the time they are born." Ms. Swift was heavily criticized by feminists in 2012 when she stated that the word "feminist" was "too strong" a word to describe her. In the last three years, however, her opinions have changed. Today, Ms. Swift believes that feminism is “probably the most important" thing that women can get involved with. According to the young star, inequality is difficult to overcome because “misogyny is ingrained in people from the time they are born." She continued, “So to...

    Feeling that bicycle maintenance is too male-centric, Bike Forth, a community bike shop in California, will open its doors every other Tuesday specifically to cater to the “Women Trans Femme” (WTF) communities. Every Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday, everyone is welcome, but men are not allowed to shop on these Tuesdays. Volunteers at the shop noticed that “most” of their customers were men, so they felt that they should be banned occasionally so that “other” communities would feel welcome and not intimidated. Anne Hereford, a volunteer at Bike Forth who helped initiate Women Trans Femme Night, said, “The idea is...

    Melvin Konner, a Professor of Anthropology and Behavioral Biology at Emory University, believes that women will lead the world to “a better place.” More specifically, he argues, “male biology has brought the world war, corruption, and scandal.” He wrote his opinions down in an article that appeared in the Wall Street Journal titled, “A Better World, Run by Women.” Women, he believes, do not become corrupt, they are not scandalous, and shall not ever plunge nations or the world into war. Females, he explains bluntly, are “superior to men in most ways that will count in the future… because of...

    In a stunningly evil and disgusting article, a feminist only willing to identify herself as “Lana” has described her decision to abort her child, based solely on the fact that he was a boy. Lana begins her article by explaining that “the patriarchy has been well entrenched since the dawn of time,” and continues by writing about an argument she had with a man on an airplane, while she was pregnant, to summarize what she deemed “extreme patriarchy.” The description of the argument is straight forward: Lana was flying to San Francisco to participate in an Occupy Wall Street rally....

    I haven’t been writing in a while, and it’s not because I don’t like writing any more but things have accelerated elsewhere in my life and I can’t be involved everywhere at once. As this isn’t paid work, obviously I can’t afford to put blogging first. Anyway, there are still many posts waiting to be finished. In the meantime, I’ll start another one. I often muse about all the things that we’d need to change about patriarchy if we abolished men’s rule over women and the earth. Everything and every single aspect of social organisation is so much the opposite...

    "Are you an American who's tired of recent-immigrant cab drivers who can't find their way from Grand Central Station to the Empire State Building? Welcome to Ameri-Rides, the new taxi service for Americans only that guarantees you a native-born American driver!" -- apocryphal ad. How do you think that concept would go over on Morning Joe or anywhere else in the MSM? But when Morning Joe today discussed SheRides, a new taxi service that hires only women drivers and accepts only women passengers, all the panel members—Mika, Joe and Willie—dug the idea. The notion is that some women riders feel...

    In a disturbing display of modern media, a number of people on Twitter, Facebook, and internet forums have lamented the fact that Elliot Rodger went on a killing spree. This is not because of the people he killed, but because he was "hot." Instead of focusing on the victims, these users talk about the attractiveness of a killer. Here is a brief compilation: "<3:" "Good looking guy:" "Quite handsome:" "Hello:"

    300 students have signed a petition to have the creepy, yet lifelike statue removed. In part, the petition reads; "This highly realistic sculpture has, within just a few hours of its outdoor installation, become a source of apprehension, fear, and triggering thoughts regarding sexual assault for many members of our campus community. While it may appear humorous, or thought-provoking to some, it has already become a source of undue stress for many Wellesley College students, the majority of whom live, study, and work in this space." The Boston Globe reports the piece is called "Sleepwalker," it was put up to...
