  • Four Years After Her Passing, Feminists Are Still Losing to Phyllis Schlafly

    'Mrs. America' tries to paint Phyllis Schlafly as cold and unforgiving, but the conservative icon my grandmother and I knew was nothing of the sort. My grandmother was in a Daughters of the American Revolution Chapter with Phyllis Schlafly from 1965 to 1990. A few years before she died, I had the privilege to intern for Mrs. Schlafly. So, during quarantine, as we watched the FX series “Mrs. America” together, we became filled with growing frustration and disgust at seeing the woman we had known misrepresented and defamed. What is most striking about “Mrs. America,” however, is how little it...
  • Turn to Jesus : Calling Women to Pray (explanation - Pray for one hour tonight)

    Could you not keep watch with Me for one hour?” (Jesus) asked…”Watch and pray so that you will not fall…” Matthew 26:40-41 It feels as though our nation is unraveling. While a heavy burden in my spirit has prompted me to issue this prayer call, the senseless killings in MN and GA seem to be visible evidence that we are in serious trouble. The following prayer is one I will be using tonight, Pentecost Sunday, on my knees, for one hour. I have left blank spaces in the written prayer so that you can write out your own praise, confession,...

    A white woman has been caught on camera calling cops and telling them an African American man was threatening her life after he simply asked her to put her dog on a leash in New York's Central Park on Monday. Amy Cooper, 41, has since apologized and has been placed on administrative leave from her job as head of insurance investment solutions at Franklin Templeton pending an investigation into the incident involving bird watcher Christian Cooper, 57. She also returned her dog to a rescue after viewers expressed concern about her treatment of the animal. Late on Monday Amy apologized...

    (CNN) — The US Air Force has removed its minimum height requirements for prospective pilots, doing away with a barrier that had disadvantaged women. Previously, aspiring Air Force pilots were required to have a standing height of 5'4" to 6'5" and a sitting height of 34 to 40 inches. Applicants shorter than 5'4" or taller than 6'5" had to submit a waiver. Though most height waivers were approved, the restrictions eliminated about 44% of the US female population ages 20 to 29, according to the Air Force.

Klein, who has worked for TIME’S UP Now since April 2019, previously worked under former President Barack Obama and failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

    Just as has happened in our economy dominated by finance capitalism, feminism brought outsized benefits to a few in exchange for the suffering of many. Starring Academy Award Winner Cate Blanchett as conservative firebrand Phyllis Schlafly, Hulu series “Mrs. America” has been getting awards buzz. While the writers are too skilled to give a one-dimensional portrayal of Schlafly, nonetheless the broader agenda of the show is clear: to anathematize Schlafly, build up the feminists who opposed her, and ultimately, to push for a new Equal Rights Amendment (ERA). “Mrs. America” is effective propaganda against Schlafly and conservative ideas because it...

    "You are hating women because you have the wrong expectations for them. Don't hate someone for something they CANNOT be. Women are, by nature, manipulative, attention-seeking, inconsistent, emotional, and hypergamous. Accept this truth. Once you do, you can game women for what they are ... not what you want them to be."

    Melisandre actress Carice Van Houten told Insider that she now questions her nude scenes in "Game of Thrones" because of the Me Too Movement. Insider spoke to the Red Witch via Zoom in lockdown, which Van Houten is spending with her three-year-old son in Amsterdam. And Van Houten said that while her opinion on the divisive final season of the HBO show hasn't changed — she loved it — she has rethought the necessity of the nudity in the show. "When the Me Too movement started, that's when it started sinking in for me," Van Houten told Insider. "And it...

    Appalling video shows the moment a woman drove her minivan over the gravestones of military veterans as she tried to avoid a traffic jam inside Houston National Cemetery. The woman was one of dozens of people who flocked to the cemetery on Sunday to watch a flyover from the Lone Star Flight Museum commemorating the 75th anniversary of VE Day - the end of World War II in Europe. As people began to leave after the flyover concluded, the woman got impatient and sought to bypass other cars by driving over the grass. 'I was shocked, and never would have...
  • A Tribute to Strong Women

    Throughout history, strong women have challenged the status quo by standing firm and refusing to be bullied. On this Mother’s Day, permit us to pay tribute to three of them. When Rosa Parks boarded the Cleveland Avenue bus the afternoon of December 1, 1955, she didn’t expect to become a national figure. She had finished work as a seamstress at a Montgomery department store and just wanted to get home. As required by local ordinance, she first entered the bus in the front to pay her fare, then exited, going to the back (Negro) entrance to re-board the bus. She...
  • Judge sides with U.S. Soccer in USWNT's equal pay lawsuit

    A federal judge in California ruled in favor of the United States Soccer Federation on most of the key points in the ongoing wage discrimination lawsuit brought by members of the U.S. women's national team player pool, dealing a potentially fatal setback to the players in the high-profile case. Players based the lawsuit filed last year on two grounds: first, that U.S. Soccer violated the Equal Pay Act by paying them less than members of the men's national team; and second, that the federation discriminated against them under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, specifically with regard...

    A federal judge threw out the unequal pay claim by players on the U.S. women’s national soccer team in a surprising loss for the defending World Cup champions but allowed their allegation of discriminatory working conditions to go to trial. Players led by Alex Morgan sued in March 2019, claiming they have not been paid equally under their collective bargaining agreement to what the men’s national team receives under its labor deal. They asked for more than $66 million in damages under the Equal Pay Act and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. In a 32-page decision...

    Former Georgia state Rep. Stacey Abrams has strongly defended former Vice President Joe Biden in response to questions about sexual assault allegations against the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee. “I believe women deserve to be heard, and I believe that has happened here,” Abrams told HuffPost in an article published Tuesday. “The allegations have been heard and looked into, and for too many women, often, that is not the case. The New York Times conducted a thorough investigation, and nothing in the Times review or any other later reports suggests anything other than what I already know about Joe Biden: That...

    Three years ago I attended the Conservative Political Action Conference and was struck by something I later concluded was probably a figment of my imagination. This year I returned, and, rather than having my recollection dispelled, it was confirmed. The young women who attend CPAC are spectacular. No kidding: What’s up with this concentration of incredibly attractive young, conservative women? It’s noticeable and remarkable. They are beautiful and stylish in the way French women often are, which is to say in their own way, not in a conforming or predictable way. They all look like the girl the high school...

Photo from Mikeoem, Wikimedia CC BY-SA 4.0. If asked to name a pirate from history, many people will mention Blackbeard or Captain William Kidd. If pressed to name a female pirate, they might mention Anne Bonny, who terrorized the Caribbean alongside Captain "Calico" Jack Rackham in the early 18th century. Anne Bonny, however, was far from the only female pirate to terrorize the seas. More than a century before Bonny's...

    The notoriously high prison population in the US is starting to decline – so why is the number of jailed women rising?On her daughter’s wedding day in 2003, Anisah Sabur-Mumin was in the third year of a four-year prison sentence for a variety of drug offences. She phoned her partner for news on the wedding and was sobbing down the line when she was summoned to start her shift working in the prison kitchens. As she hung up, a guard asked her what was wrong. After Sabur-Mumin repeatedly insisted she was fine and didn’t want to talk about it, the...

    As the novel coronavirus cuts its relentless swath across the globe, doctors have identified one grim constant: COVID-19 has men, more than women, in its sights. In Italy, men account for at least 70 percent of all coronavirus deaths. While South Korea has seen more confirmed COVID-19 cases in female patients than in males, a higher percentage of men have been felled by it. Here in New York City, more men than women are testing positive for coronavirus, with 55 percent of all cases. They also are dying of it at even higher rates. As of Friday, 1,159 men in...
