  • The March for Life Is Also a Womenís March

    01/18/2019 12:59:01 AM PST · by Kaslin · 1 replies ^ | March 18, 2019 | Katie Yoder
    The March for Life is, at its core, a womenís march.January 18 marks the 46th annual March for Life held in Washington, D.C. The rally champions life, especially of the unborn, by challenging Roe v. Wade, the 1973 Supreme Court case that legalized abortion. Each year, the march boasts high-profile speakers and attracts up to hundreds of thousands of marchers Ė young, old, men, and, yes, women.The march calls attention first to the humanity of the unborn. But thatís why itís also a womenís march: the event values all persons equally from their conception, whether male or female.Itís a march...

    Discovery suggests women worked as top artists in Middle Ages more often than thought They couldn't figure out the blue. Scientists studying tartar from the teeth of medieval skeletons hoped to learn a thing or two of about diets of the Middle Ages. But when they put the teeth and jaw of one woman under a microscope, they were surprised to see hundreds of tiny flecks of blue, reports the BBC. After much sleuthing, they figured out that the blue came from lapis lazuli, a rare and expensive stone ground into powder to make dye for sacred manuscripts. Typically, male...

    While this subject has largely fallen into the ‚Äúsettled‚ÄĚ category for the most part, it‚Äôs still being brought up for discussion among the public. We‚Äôre once again talking about women in combat. Back during the Obama administration, Ash Carter was directed to open all combat roles to women. At the time, we were assured that female recruits would have to meet the same physical standards as their male counterparts. Slowly but sure, however, that principle was eroded.As Heather Mac Donald writes in the Wall Street Journal (subscription required), the standards did indeed change. But even with those relaxed standards,...

    PARIS - A 50-year-old French author is under fire on social media for saying he couldnít love a woman his own age. According to USA Today, BBC News and other outlets, Yann Moix made the controversial comments in a recent interview with Marie Claire France. "I'm telling you the truth," the TV host and "Rompre (Breaking Up)" writer said in French. "At 50 years old, I am incapable of loving a 50-year-old woman."

    A controversial new law in California, the first of its kind in the U.S., requires publicly traded companies headquartered in the state to include at least one woman on their board of directors by the end of 2019. But are quotas are the best way to bring womenís voices to the table? Legislators in New Jersey have already indicated they think so. Garden State lawmaker Nancy Pinkin (D-NJ) proposed a bill that would require women on state-based corporate boards. The measure has been sent to its first committee for hearing. Colorado, Illinois, Massachusetts, and Pennsylvania have also moved the needle...

    The United States Marine Corps (All Hail Chesty Puller. Oorah!) is making a bit of history today. When the 3rd Recruit Training Battalion of aspiring Marines began training at Parris Island this morning it included one all-female platoon, complete with female drill instructors. The rest of the platoons will be composed of men. The details are complicated and it’s not 100% integration for all activities, but the battalion will definitely be mixing the genders for a number of activities as they move through basic training. (The Hill) At training starting Saturday, one of the battalions at the Recruit Depot...

    While Hollywood women have made incremental gains in below-the-line jobs like producing and editing, they backslid as feature film directors and continue on a path of ďradical underrepresentationĒ in the industry, a new study says. Martha Lauzenís ďCelluloid Ceiling,Ē a comprehensive report of womenís behind-the-scenes employment in film run out of San Diego State University, hit on Thursday ó and its analysis comes with a blazing criticism that Hollywoodís value shift is only lip service until the industry commits to transparency. ďThe study provides no evidence that the mainstream film industry has experienced the profound positive shift predicted by so...

    wo women defied a centuries-old ban on entering a Hindu temple in the Indian state of Kerala on Wednesday, sparking protests and calls for a strike by conservative Hindu groups outraged by their visit. Police fired teargas and used water cannons to disperse a large crowd of protesters in the state capital of Thiruvananthapuram, television news channels showed. There were protests in several other cities in the state, media reported. India's Supreme Court in September ordered the lifting of the ban on women or girls of menstruating age from entering the Sabarimala temple, which draws millions of worshippers a year.

    Much is made about observed differences between sexes and among races. The nation's academic and legal elite try to sell us on the notion that men and women and people of all races should be proportionally represented in socio-economic characteristics. They make statements such as "Though African Americans and Hispanics make up approximately 32 percent of the US population, they (constituted) 56 percent of all incarcerated people in 2015" and "20 percent of Congress is women. Only 5 percent of CEOs are." These differences are frequently referred to as disparities. Legal professionals, judges, politicians, academics and others often operate under...

    Media figures are treating two new porn bans as complete opposites. But they should be celebrating both Ė for the same reason.On Dec. 3, Tumblr declared that it would ban porn and other adult content beginning Dec. 17. The decision closely followed headlines announcing Starbucks will block pornography and illegal content from its Wi-Fi starting in 2019. But while media commentators applauded the coffee chain, many of them condemned the blogging platform. Theyíre wrong.To begin with, Tumblr and Starbucks came to their conclusions under different circumstances. Tumblr had faced consequences for child pornography leaking onto its site, reported CBS News,...

A week later, Ms. Jacobs helped start feminist advocacy group WoMen For All as charges of bigotry and anti-Semitism roiled the leadership team of Ms. Mallory, Bob Bland, Carmen Perez and Linda Sarsour. ďWe formed Ö in March 2018 very much in response to the homophobia, transphobia, anti-Semitism and misogyny of Farrakhanís preaching that was being normalized by Womenís March leaders,Ē Ms. Jacobs said. Even as the Womenís March celebrates...
