    Hillary Clinton slammed what she called "endemic" sexism and misogyny in America during an interview with Fareed Zakaria, which aired Sunday. Clinton, who was interviewed by Zakaria on his show, "GPS," said sexism was so inherent that she purposely hadn't highlighted her career history of fighting for women's rights when she ran for president in 2016. However, she admitted that with the benefit of hindsight, she "could have tried harder" to do so. "I'm a middle-class girl from the middle of the country, and so I always struggled with like, OK, so what's my story. And it suddenly dawned on...

    'So now that we've dealt with Weinstein what are we going to do about Trump?' Josh Gad tweeted. Many figures within the Hollywood industry applauded The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences on Saturday when the 54-member Board of Governors voted to expel Harvey Weinstein from their ranks. [Snip] The Academy released a statement from the board after the decision was made, stating that the votes to oust Weinstein were "well in excess of the required two-thirds majority." Members of the board include Laura Dern, Whoopi Goldberg, Tom Hanks, Steven Spielberg, and Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy. "We do so...

    Harvey Weinstein has been removed as the head of the Weinstein Company following a bombshell investigation that uncovered decades of allegations of sexual harassment against him, and now The New Yorker has obtained audio of Weinstein confessing to groping a woman. In a confrontation recorded by the NYPD of Weinstein and Filipina-Italian model and aspiring actress Ambra Battilana Gutierrez, Weinstein is heard instructing Gutierrez to come into his hotel room and sit in the bathroom for five minutes and drink water while he showers. Gutierrez repeatedly tells Weinstein that she does not feel comfortable and asks him why he touched...

    You've heard by now Hollywood movie mogul Harvey Weinstein is finally being held accountable for decades of alleged sexual harassment and abuse. Today he was fired by the company he co-founded. In the political world, it's a full blown scandal. A handful of Democrats have returned campaign money donated by Weinstein, while many more are happy to keep it. The DNC decided to launder a tiny fractionof the dirty dollars to other Democrat groups, rather than return it or donate to women's organizations. Over the years, Weinstein has donated and raised hundreds-of-thousands of dollars for Democrats. In 2016, he...

    Dear women, We tried very hard to remain optimistic this week, but it’s time to admit that this wasn’t a great week for women. So, let’s start with the little good news we do have. The good news • The Norwegian FA has announced that it’s almost doubling the financial compensation female soccer players will receive from 3.1 million Norwegian kroner ($390,000) to 6 million kroner ($750,000). Even better news: Male players are paying for part of that out of their own fees. This new agreement will lead to men and women receiving equal compensation. Equal pay for men’s and...

    Legendary Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein will channel his anger at himself for allegedly sexually harassing women for the last 40 years into trying to take down the NRA and President Trump. The New York Times reported that the Hollywood mogul has a number of former colleagues, including actress Ashley Judd, claiming that he made unwelcomed advances on them. The producer plans to take a leave of absence from work to "deal with this issue head on." "I am going to need a place to channel that anger so I've decided that I'm going to give the NRA my full attention,"...

    Cam Newton is under fire for making a sexist comment to a female reporter during a press conference on Wednesday. Carolina Panthers beat writer Jourdan Rodrigue asked the quarterback about wide receiver Devin Funchess’ improvements on the field. “I know you take a lot of pride in seeing your receivers play well,” Rodrigue said during the briefing. “Devin Funchess has really seemed to embrace the physicality of his routes and getting those extra yards. Does that give you a little bit of enjoyment to see him kind of truck-sticking people out there?” Newton laughed and replied, “It’s funny to hear...

    From 1978 through 1979, Stefan Tetenbaum worked as Hugh Hefner's valet, doing everything from restocking the Playboy founder's fridge with necessities like perfectly chilled Pepsi to cleaning sex toys after Hefner’s infamous "Pig Nights," when the robe-clad Hef would call in prostitutes for his friends. Tetenbaum, now 67 and a sculptor living in Redondo Beach, Calif., shares his stories with The Post. My job as Mr. Hefner’s valet was to take care of him in a very personal way. I prepared his "sick menu" - Pepsi, Campbell's chicken noodle soup and M&Ms - whenever he felt ill, which was often...

    For some time now, Democrats have played the identity politics game, revving up grievances -- real or imagined -- of different ethnic groups with the only commonality a dismissive prejudice against middle-class white men. This divisive disunity strategy served them well for a while, but no longer. With nothing else to replace it, itÂ’s between Scylla and Charybdis -- risk losing the base and seek broader appeal or crash into obscurity. They continue to choose poorly. I donÂ’t know the name of the person who created this, but it shows rather well the arguments of the everything-is-racism in their deck...

    Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg gave an interview to CBS News’ Charlie Rose Tuesday in which she said sexism was a “major factor” in Hillary’s 2016 loss.Asked when she believes a woman will be president, Ginsburg replied, “Well, we came pretty close.” “You think sexism played a role in that campaign?” Charlie Rose asked. Ginsburg replied, “I have no doubt that it did.” At this point, the crowd breaks into applause. They aren’t applauding sexism, of course, they are applauding a Supreme Court Justice siding with Hillary Clinton and therefore implicitly criticizing President Trump. Asked if sexism was decisive in...

    While several Nasa missions have involved mixed crews, a secret report by the space agency suggests that missions to Mars could be all-female. Speaking at a conference today, British astronaut, Helen Sharman, claimed that Nasa has filed a report that warns that male and female astronauts could get frisky during the one and a half year journey to the red planet. The report claims that all-female crews would be the best option, as women work better as a team, and are less likely than men to fight over who is the leader. Ms Sharman has never seen the report herself,...

    Hillary Clinton suggested in an interview published Saturday that President Donald Trump appealed to male voters by promising to take jobs away from women and give them to men. In the interview with the New York Times to promote her new book “What Happened,” Clinton claimed that President Trump won because he sold a “retrograde message of nostalgia: ‘We can go back to the way things were. You don’t have to compete with a woman for a job. Or with a striving young immigrant.’ It’s a falsehood that gave some comfort to people and gave the permission to scapegoat others.”...
  • Trudeau: Opposition to “anti-Islamophobia” motion is sexism

    Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau suggested that some of the opposition to Islamophobia legislation was an example of sexism. It could not be further from the truth that sexism is in any way involved in opposing MP Iqra Khalid’s anti-Islamophobia motion M-103. A private member’s motion was passed in March by female Member of Parliament Iqra Khalid, that identified a “public climate of hate and fear” in Canada and demanded that Islamophobia be treated as a hate crime and be subject to prosecution under the Canadian criminal code. Scrutiny and criticism of any religion has never been deemed a crime...

    As if Hillary Clinton's new book couldn’t get any stranger, newly released audio reveals she thinks Russian president Vladimir Putin is a sexist "manspreader." "When I sat with Putin in meetings, he looked more like one of those guys on the subway who imperiously spreads their legs wide," the former secretary of state says in "What Happened," "encroaching on everyone else's space as if to say, 'I take what I want.'" "They call it 'manspreading,'" she asserts.

    It feels like déjŕ vu but, suddenly, I have to defend Hillary Clinton on social media, and it’s becoming time consuming: I have to explain why she has every right to analyze, in her soon-to-be-released book, “what happened” during the 2016 election cycle, and why that analysis is helpful to Democrats and healing to her supporters as we move forward. I have to discuss why she lost the election due to, among other factors, so-called progressives failing to vote for her (for largely sexist reasons). I have to posit why a new media platform, Verrit, that proudly caters to the...

    Fabio Fognini has been kicked out of the US Open after verbally abusing a female umpire during his first round singles match. The Italian was due to play in the third round of the doubles but he has been withdrawn from that contest and provisionally suspended from competition. Fognini had already been handed a series of fines totalling Ł18,500 after he lost his temper during a loss to fellow countryman Stefano Travaglia. The 30-year-old was heard using insulting language towards Swedish official Louise Engzell and was handed three separate fines – the largest sanction coming to a whopping Ł11,581. And...

    Why aren't there more women criminals?! Men in jail outnumber women by a ratio of 14-to-1. We male stutterers outnumber women, too. This isn't fair! We need more affirmative action! These disparities must be caused by sex discrimination because everyone knows there are no real differences between genders. After all, Google fired engineer James Damore for daring to suggest that there is a biological reason men dominate tech leadership. Google's CEO said: "To suggest a group of our colleagues have traits that make them less biologically suited to that work is offensive." Then the media lied about what Damore wrote....

    When Emily Maitlis of BBC Newsnight landed her first (and possibly as it transpired, her last) interview with the then-incoming Head of Communications for the White House, Anthony “the Mooch” Scaramucci, she could have had little idea beyond her briefing notes what to expect. What viewers actually saw and heard wasn’t just a bad omen of things to come, but an exercise in that peculiar blend of undisguised contempt and ferocious masculine-driven competition that has become a decisive marker of the violent underpinnings of Donald Trump and his administration. Women beware. Scaramucci rose to the occasion of having a well-trained...
