    The NUS Women's Campaign, which states that it "exists to represent and extend and defend the rights of women students," is asking people to be "mindful" about clapping, as the loud noise could be "triggering" for some people. Instead, the group is asking members to use "jazz hands," as they are silent. This is not a joke. This is the actual tweet that went out:

    Tere's a growing movement to make girls' toys less girly. Petitions have been signed and complaints lodged — sometimes even by those as young as 5 — about why girls deserve more than princesses and pink. And toy companies are beginning to listen, offering educational or scientific toys marketed to girls. The latest: a new LEGO collection of female scientist figures. That's great news! But here's the thing: Boys deserve more variety too.

    Pulling on his pants after our intimate encounter in my Las Vegas hotel room, the cute 23-year-old I’d just picked up holds out his cellphone, urging me to tap in my number. “You really don’t have to take it,” I say. Having sex with a stranger is thrilling, but I’m not that interested in a repeat performance. Two minutes after he’s gone, I climb back into bed and text my husband, Scott, whom I’ve been with for 18 years. “Just saying good night,” I type. “Good night, dove,” writes back Scott from wherever he is. Scenarios like these were typical...

    Rosa Parks should be on the $20 bill, not Andrew Jackson—one group is taking that argument all the way to the White House. Women make up 50 percent of the U.S. population and 85 percent of all consumer purchases, so isn’t it about time we got a face on some legal tender? Women on 20s is a nonprofit on a mission to make a woman on the $20 bill a reality. “This is designed to be a grassroots campaign. We want this to come from the people,” says Susan Ades Stone, executive director and strategist of Women on 20s. “This...

Females, he explains bluntly, are “superior to men in most ways that will count in the future… because of...

    After a year full of discord and #outrage, Super Bowl advertisers went waaay somber. It’s as if they hoped to gently heal us, to spur reflection, to encourage us all to just, like, coexist with each other and consider each other’s struggles. Over the course of the night, there appeared dead children. Absent fathers. People forced to work during the Super Bowl instead of watching the game. There was Jeff Bridges helping us to conquer our nighttime anxieties. Frankly, the whole thing was sort of a bummer. I’m all in favor of marketers evolving beyond the farting animals and contused...

    If you are a woman and are speaking when a man butts in, you have not been interrupted. Instead, according to Time, you have been “manterrupted” because men disproportionately interrupt females and women rarely interrupt males. According to an article published this week, titled “How Not to Be ‘Manterrupted’ In Meetings” and written by Jessica Bennett, there is an epidemic of sexism in which men do not respect the opinions of women. Bennett’s first example is the infamous VMA award ceremony in which Kanye West interrupted Taylor Swift. Yet this was not an aberration, according to Bennett, who sees it...

The president will also call on Congress to offer six weeks of paid administrative leave. “We can't say we stand for family values when so many women in this country have to jeopardize their financial security just to take a few weeks off...

    Soraya Chemaly of Time Magazine has declared that bathrooms are sexist. Ms. Chemaly published the article yesterday in Time’s “Women” section. The piece is called “The Everyday Sexism of Women Waiting in Public Toilet Lines.” The author’s writes that “long lines for women’s restrooms are the result of a history that favors men’s bodies,” showing that, in fact, bathrooms themselves are sexist. More than that, because women often wait longer in line to use the bathroom, restrooms are “frustrating, uncomfortable, and, in some circumstances, humiliating,” and even more, “a form of discrimination.” Chemaly argues that bathrooms are inherently sexist because,...

It didn’t work out with any of those men, but going out with them made it all the more obvious to me what I want...

The criminal complaint indicates that Jenna Schumacher brought her son to Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin on November 5th. The child was admitted for chronic ear bleeding and perforated eardrums. Doctors indicated there was “no medical cause” for the ear injuries — and because of that, they were concerned this may be an abuse situation.

    The obesity epidemic in men could be fueled by the female sex hormone estrogen, scientists claim. Experts believe the hormone could also be causing the well-documented drop in sperm count among Western men. They said men in affluent countries are becoming “feminized” as they come into contact with products containing the female sex hormone. Compounds found in some plastic items, including drain pipes, and soy food products can mimic the effects of estrogen, scientists said. Secreted by the ovaries in premenstrual women, estrogen is known to cause weight gain, inhibiting the thyroid gland and affecting other areas of the brain....

They say women have a right to abortion, but deny the right to LIFE. They encourage men to speak up if they advocate abortion, but demand that they shut up if they are Pro-Life. “You don’t have a uterus!” they shout, suggesting that an absence of female reproductive organs disqualifies men from making judgments of right and wrong. But this anatomical difference is no problem – in fact, it is a great boon – when men want to express their belief in...

    Who runs the world? In these six societies: Girls. By standard definition, a matriarchy is a “family, group or state governed by a matriarch (a woman who is head of a family or tribe).” Anthropologists and feminists have since created more specific classifications for female societies, including the matrilineal system. Matrilineality refers not only to tracing one’s lineage through maternal ancestry, it can also refer to a civil system in which one inherits property through the female line. While the legendary Amazons (probably the most widely known matriarchy) are relegated to mythology, there are a handful of female-led societies...

    “When women go wrong men go right after them.” – Mae West “Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy; its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.” Winston Churchill wrote this over a century ago. During my junior year in high school, the nuns asked about our plans for after we graduated. When I said I was going to attend State University, I noticed their disappointment. I asked my favorite nun, “Why?” She answered, “That means you’ll leave four years later a communist and an atheist!” What a giggle we girls...

    Fifty years after Julie Andrews starred as that practically perfect nanny, the character is still a role model for young women. Like all Disney movies, Mary Poppins is full of whimsy and adventure, good guys and, if not bad guys, at least shades-of-grey guys. And as we celebrate the film today, on its fiftieth anniversary, let’s not forget its feminist perspective.
  • Linda Stasi: Robin Williams’ $30M alimony to ex-wives contributed to death [What did he owe them?]

    Did alimony kill Robin Williams? At least in part it sure did. Paying out over $30 million to ex-wives who were allowed to attach themselves to Williams’ bank account like comatose patients on feeding tubes would be enough to make Gandhi angry and depressed. While states are finally, gradually catching up to the modern age in terms of alimony (now they call it “maintenance” — as in “high maintenance”) the practice of men paying women because they once were married is not just primitive but, yes, sexist. Yeah, go ahead, call me anti-feminist, call me whatever you want, but the...

    One of the major causes of the financial crash of 2008 was the insularity of the “good old boys” network on Wall Street, says Sallie Krawcheck. The former Citigroup CFO has started a socially responsibly stock mutual fund that promotes the world’s 400 most female-focused firms. Economics correspondent Paul Solman reports.

    First lady Michelle Obama on Wednesday proudly stated she believes women are the smarter sex and must use prominent positions in government, business and other endeavors to affect change. Speaking at a women’s forum at the U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit in Washington alongside former first lady Laura Bush, Mrs. Obama said women in power cannot waste their opportunities because they’re simply more intelligent than men. “Every time I meet a child I think, who knows what’s going on in her life, whether she was just bullied or whether she had a bad day at school or whether she lost a parent...

    Just to recall a basic fact: Intercourse/PIV is always rape, plain and simple. This is a developed recap from what I’ve been saying in various comments here and there in the last two years or so. as a radfem I’ve always said PIV is rape and I remember being disappointed to discover that so few radical feminists stated it clearly. How can you possibly see it otherwise? Intercourse is the very means through which men oppress us, from which we are not allowed to escape, yet some instances of or PIV and intercourse may be chosen and free? That makes...

    The director of Bridesmaids, The Heat, and the upcoming Melissa McCarthy/Jason Statham action comedy Spy just had to go and get Sony interested in a female-centric reboot of the Ghostbusters franchise (Variety). Hollywood makes fewer smaller-scale releases for multiplex audiences, and the conventional wisdom is that the expensive films need white male leads to maximize worldwide box office potential.  We all saw as Angelina Jolie’s Maleficent ended up becoming one of the biggest grossing films of the year domestically ($234 million) and worldwide ($717m) following a year when the biggest film in America (The Hunger Games: Catching Fire) and worldwide (Frozen) were female-centric. Even Melissa McCarthy’s Tammy, written off after opening weekend as...

    "'Life' in this 'society' being, at best, an utter bore and no aspect of 'society' being at all relevant to women, there remains to civic-minded, responsible, thrill-seeking females only to overthrow the government, eliminate the money system, institute complete automation and eliminate the male sex." - Valerie Solanas.Professor Breanne Fahs is a revolutionary. She teaches Women's and Gender Studies at Arizona State University. Recently, she decided to give extra credit to her female students for "defying social norms" by refusing to shave their armpits. In the name of equality, she also gave her male students an opportunity to earn...
