    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.

    Counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway said she "didn't see the point" to the Women's March on Washington on Saturday. "I frankly didn't see the point. I mean you have a day after [President Trump] is uplifting and unifying, and you have folks here being on a diatribe.... Conway also addressed the celebrity presence at the march in Washington, D.C., which was one of hundreds such demonstrations Saturday around the U.S. and the world that drew over a million participants. She called out Madonna for using "profanity-laced" language. "You have celebrities from the podium using profanity-laced insults. You have a...

    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.

    Maggie Passmore of St. Paul, Minnesota, had been watching election returns at a party but reverted to watching at home "when things got scary." She fell asleep, then awoke to learn that Donald Trump was defeating Hillary Clinton. "And then I threw up," said Passmore, 54. "My body totally rejected the result." Hours later, she found herself writing an email to her kids saying how terrified she was... Shock. Despair. A punch to the gut. Hopelessness. Countless female Clinton supporters used those words Wednesday to describe their feelings. Some spoke of collapsing in tears, or seeing strangers do the same...

    Voting in America is over. Donald Trump has emerged victorious over Hillary Clinton and will become the 45th President of the USA. Early signs as to how this unexpected result occurred can be seen in demographic exit poll data, with Clinton doing worse than expected among women, Hispanic voters and African Americans. By comparing Clinton's performance to Obama's in 2012 it is easy to see that she failed to appeal to a number of key voter groups. Groups that it was predicted she would have more support from. - - - Trump gained support among Hispanic and African American voters...

    According to CNN, 53 percent of white female voters voted for Donald Trump. Fifty-three percent. More than half of white women voted for the man who bragged about committing sexual assault on tape, who said he would appoint Supreme Court justices who would overturn Roe v. Wade, who has promised to undo legislation that has afforded health insurance to millions of uninsured Americans, whose parental leave plan is a joke, who has spent his campaign dehumanizing nonwhite people, who has spent 30-plus years in the public eye reducing women to their sexual attributes. More than half of white women looked...

    Investor's Business Daily ^ | 11/1/2016 | John Merline
    Weeks of wall-to-wall media coverage of Donald Trump's crude language and alleged misdeeds involving women don't seem to have hurt his standing among female voters, the IBD/TIPP presidential tracking poll shows. That's not to say there isn't a gender gap — there's still a big one. But Trump's support among women has improved 5 points in the past three days in the wake of the FBI's stunning announcement that it is looking into a fresh batch of emails relating to Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server while secretary of state. As of Tuesday, 39% of women said they're...

    The divisive presidential campaign between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton is putting political rifts between parties and genders on display across the country. There’s some agreement in Montana though, where according to the 30th annual Montana Poll conducted by students and faculty at Montana State University, both men and women prefer Donald Trump. “Trump is ahead of Clinton by 16 points,” said MSU Polling Director Dr. Nisha Bellinger said. “We have Trump at 43 percent and Clinton 27 percent. 37 percent of the females favor Trump as compared to 33 percent of females who favor Clinton. So Trump, as far...

    Market Watch ^ | October 18, 2016 | Diana Furchtgott-Roth
    Women have always voted for Democratic Party candidates in greater numbers than men have, and in recent weeks Donald Trump is losing women by a wider margin because of sexual-assault allegations. But the Republican nominee for president would actually help women more than Hillary Clinton would. Here’s how: The top tax rate currently is 39.6%. The top effective rate is closer to 45% because limits on deductions add 1.2 percentage points, and the Affordable Care Act adds an extra 3.8 percentage points. Clinton has proposed an additional 4 percentage points, bringing the top federal rate to 49%. With state taxes,...
