  • Trump and women: The big disconnect in American politics

    The disconnect between President Trump and female voters is serious and not getting better. That’s a potentially big problem for Republicans in the November elections — but only if the women opposed to the president turn out to vote. Trump’s election divided an already fractured country, deepening the red-blue chasm that has become the defining feature of today’s politics. But the revulsion among many women toward the president adds another layer to the politics of discontent. Trump is doing nothing to mitigate the problem. Just the opposite. A man accused by multiple women of sexual misbehavior, he seems to take...

    LEESBURG, Va. — Gina Anders knows the feeling well by now. President Trump says or does something that triggers a spasm of outrage. She doesn’t necessarily agree with how he handled the situation. She gets why people are upset. But Ms. Anders, 46, a Republican from suburban Loudoun County, Va., with a law degree, a business career, and not a stitch of “Make America Great Again” gear in her wardrobe, is moved to defend him anyway. “All nuance and all complexity — and these are complex issues — are completely lost,” she said, describing “overblown” reactions from the president’s critics,...

    Still struggling to come to terms with the results of the 2016 election, former first lady Michelle Obama recently said she’s concerned for women and “how we think.” “In light of this last election, I’m concerned about us as women and how we think,” she said at the United State of Women Summit in Los Angeles. “What is going on in our heads where we let that happen, you know?” Obama referred to Clinton as “the most qualified” candidate running for president in 2016, and said voting against her “says something about where we are.” That’s despite the multiple investigations,...

    Would America Vote for Oprah for President? The speculation centered on Winfrey’s possible presidential bid – while encouraging on its own – lacks a full assessment of all that Winfrey brings to the table. The experiences of black women, even those that are high-profile, are often constrained by how people view them. By The Conversation April 17, 2018 Would America vote for Oprah for president America has had a black president. Is the country ready for a black president who is also a woman? Speculation about the candidacy of Oprah Winfrey makes clear that some voters think so. Granted, Winfrey...
  • 'Roseanne' co-star Sandra Bernhard says women who support Trump can't 'think for themselves'

    The actress, who is reprising her role as Nancy Bartlett Thomas in the eagerly awaited sitcom reboot, told MSNBC's Ari Melber that she doesn't understand how women could support Trump unless they are "under the thumb" of their husbands. "A lot of women have compromised, given in, raised their kids and not had the luxury of being able to think for themselves," Bernhard said Wednesday, adding they are "under the thumb of [their] husband[s]." The 62-year-old, who has yet to make an appearance on the recently premiered TV reboot, then suggested perhaps the reason why women voted for Trump was...

    Hillary Clinton’s trip to India is evoking memories from her failed 2016 bid for president, as the Democrat makes headlines for blaming racism and misogyny for her loss while taking stumbles in front of the cameras. During an appearance in India over the weekend, Clinton claimed she lost the 2016 presidential race in part because white women didn’t stand up to the men in their lives pressuring them to vote for Donald Trump. “We do not do well with white men and we don’t do well with married, white women,” Clinton said at a conference in Mumbai, India. “And part...
  • Clinton: White Women Voted for Trump Because Their Husbands Told Them To

    Hillary Clinton said that white women voted for President Trump during the 2016 presidential election because their husbands told them to, during a discussion at the India Today Conclave on Saturday. The moderator asked Clinton why she thinks almost 52 percent of white women voted for Trump, despite them knowing about the controversial “Access Hollywood” tape. “[Democrats] do not do well with white men and we don’t do well with married, white women,” Clinton explained. “And part of that is an identification with the Republican Party, and a sort of ongoing pressure to vote the way that your husband, your...

    FINDING THE PATTERNS   Virginia's House of Delegates nearly doubled its number of female lawmakers on Tuesday, while across the country, Democratic women won key mayoral and other races. Many say dismay over President Trump's election motivated them to run for office themselves. WASHINGTON—Jennifer Carroll Foy is one resilient woman. Three weeks after announcing her candidacy for the Virginia state legislature, Ms. Carroll Foy discovered she was pregnant – with twins. That led to bed rest, and a very premature delivery. But she kept on running, and on Tuesday, she became one of 11 Democratic women to win Republican-held seats...

    DETROIT — As the sun shined on Detroit on Saturday, the halls and conference rooms of the city’s Cobo Center convention hall were packed with a diverse array of women. Many had come from across the country to answer a key question that’s been burning for nearly a year now: What’s next? The inaugural Women’s Convention marked the first major follow-up to January’s Women’s March. That nationwide event, which took place in the wake of Donald Trump’s inauguration, saw millions of women take to the streets of cities across the country to take direct action, assert their rights and make...

    NEW YORK (AP) - Tennis icon Billie Jean King is not mincing words about the many white women who voted for Donald Trump, saying they "really don't like themselves." King, who led the fight for equal pay for women in tennis, also says she feels there is more misogyny now than when she defeated Bobby Riggs in the famous "Battle of the Sexes" match in 1973, the subject of the new movie starring Emma Stone and Steve Carell. "I think there's a lot of misogyny - I think it's higher now than it was," King said in an interview Tuesday...

    Former first lady Michelle Obama is breaking her silence about a gang of people who did something awful because they’re empty-headed zombies and under some sort of mind-control by evil-doers. No, she wasn’t talking about Islamist terrorists, gang members or cultists. Obama’s targets of ridicule and shame are … American women who voted for Donald Trump. “Any woman who voted against Hillary Clinton voted against their own voice,” Obama told the audience recently at a marketing conference in Boston. And what exactly does that mean? After all, the feminist movement was about women becoming free to be able to make...

    An election-day survey of more than 9,000 voters in the first round of France's presidential contest found that National Front leader Marine Le Pen won a larger share of support from women and young voters than any other candidate.

    President Trump took to Twitter Sunday to tweak the protesters who flooded the National Mall a day earlier, saying they might have been more effective if they’d been this active before the election. “Watched protests yesterday but was under the impression that we just had an election! Why didn’t these people vote?” he tweeted. He then added: “Celebs hurt cause badly.”

    Women all across America are planning to festoon themselves with knitted, pink “pussy power hats” during a march on Washington, D.C. - and other cities - scheduled for January 21, the day after Donald Trump’s presidential inauguration. The organizers of the Pussyhat Project hope to make "a powerful visual statement" at the Women’s March on Washington by having a large number of women show up wearing the hats. The "pussy power hats," which feature perky cat-like ears, are a cinch to make, organizers say. "Knitters, crocheters and sewers of all levels" can make the hats at home - preferably...
  • Hillary Clinton’s Celebrity Feminism Was a Failure

    Hillary Clinton will not be our first woman president, a symbolic blow made more painful by the fact that she lost to a raging misogynist and sexual predator. Donald Trump is now set to preside over a unified Republican government deeply antagonistic to abortion rights, marriage equality, and healthcare access. This will almost certainly be disastrous for women, but according to exit polls, 53 percent of white women voted for him anyway.
