    At 1 p.m. on Monday, supporters of the women who accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault walked out of their homes and workplaces. The national walkout was promoted partially in response to the backlash these and other women face when going public with stories of sexual assault and rape. The anti-sexual-harassment organization Times Up tweeted on Sunday that “WOMEN MUST BE HEARD” in a “MOMENT OF SOLIDARITY” with Kavanaugh’s accusers, Christine Blasey Ford and Deborah Ramirez. It urged people to wear black and leave wherever they are in protest, using the hashtag #BelieveSurvivors on social media. In...

    On Friday morning, Donald Trump tweeted that Christine Blasey Ford should have reported her assault sooner if it was as “bad as she says.” Ford came forward with an allegation of sexual assault against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, and since then, she has been endlessly harassed, threatened, and her credibility has been repeatedly questioned. Now, there will be a national #BelieveSurvivors walkout on Monday, in solidarity with Ford and in protest of Brett Kavanaugh. Here’s what to know. The walkout will begin at 1:00 p.m. EST. The walkout will begin on Monday, September 24, at 1:00 p.m. EST (10:00...

    A fair number of people who voted for President Donald Trump—just about half—think that women who complain about harassment often create more problems instead of solving anything, according to a new poll released this week. The survey from YouGov/The Economist asked respondents whether they agreed with this statement: “Women who complain about harassment often cause more problems than they solve.” Among Trump voters, 14 percent said they strongly agreed, while 34 percent agreed somewhat—meaning that overall, 48 percent agreed with the statement to some degree. Forty percent of Trump voters disagreed, to some degree, that “women who complain about harassment...

    This is an formal survey. Gents, you'll see why it's women only. Ladies, it doesn't matter if you believe Dr. Ford or not. Do you think she is asking for extra special handling because she is a woman? Do you think she is being treated differently because she is a woman? You can say if you believe her or not, but the real questions are above.

    American Thinker ^ | 09/21/2018 | Monica Showalter
    It's always tough when the puppets don't behave. So it seemed when CNN interviewed five women and found that all five supported the Supreme Court nomination of Brett Kavanaugh. The female interviewer, who was with Anderson Cooper's AC360° team, found that much to her surprise, the Republican women just didn't keep to the script and ended up arguing with them. Daily Wire reporter Ryan Saavedra posted on Twitter with merriment the frustrating exchange: CNN asks 5 women if they believe Judge Brett Kavanaugh's denial that he ever engaged in any kind of sexual misconduct with Christine Blasey Ford. All 5 women...

    New York Times ^ | Sept. 19, 2018 | Jeffery C. Mays
    More than 500 women and teenagers will be bailed out from Rikers Island as part of a national campaign to dismantle a bail system that activists say discriminates against minorities and the poor. The effort is being spearheaded by the Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights group, which plans to raise at least $5 million to fund the releases. While there have been other so-called mass bailouts around the country, organizers said they believe this effort at Rikers has the potential to be one of the largest ever.

    Apple CEO Tim Cook just announced a new series of larger iPhone models, and the products are already being criticized by some women who claim the phones have a sexist design. On Wednesday, Cook announced that the company would be expanding their iPhone X line with three new phones. While the smallest of these products, the iPhone XS, has a 5.8-inch screen, the largest, the iPhone XS Max has a whopping 6.5-inch screen, making it Apple’s largest iPhone ever. Additionally, the company also announced that they would be discontinuing their iPhone SE, which had a 4-inch screen. Numerous women have...

    Hollywood actresses and women from around the U.S., some being key members of the #MeToo and Time's Up movements, have shown their support for Christine Blasey Ford. Blasey, a professor at California's Palo Alto University, who recently accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, has seen significant public support after she made the difficult decision to publicly share her story. Now, the likes of Julianne Moore, America Ferrera, Gabrielle Union, Amber Tamblyn, Eva Longoria, Jamia Wilson, and Marisa Tomei, along with many other women from different situations, all read the same supportive letter to Ford, in a video...

    WASHINGTON — She went public just days before a critical vote and took a polygraph test to bolster her credibility. He unequivocally denied her years-old charges of sexual misconduct. Calls mounted to delay the vote and investigate. It was late September, and a Supreme Court seat hung in the balance. For those of a certain age in Washington, the past few days have felt like an eerie echo of the confirmation battle that consumed the capital in 1991 when Anita F. Hill accused Clarence Thomas of sexually harassing her. Now it is Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh who faces a hearing...

    A new ad from the British government is widely being condemned as sexist for implying women must choose between having a baby or wearing high heels and lipstick. The National Health Association ad was meant to promote emergency contraception (certain types of which may cause abortions), but even liberal women’s bloggers and commentators slammed the ad as “sexist.” A project of the Walsall Healthcare NHS Trust, the ad asks “Would you give up this?” alongside pictures of a high heeled women’s shoe and a tube of lipstick, followed by “For this?” and a picture of a baby pacifier. “In other...

    Beto O’Rourke is awakening a grassroots movement in Texas — one that’s led by gray-haired, once-loyal Democrats who are aggressively working to end decades of their own political dormancy in Texas. It’s not the sleeping Latino base that Democrats have long believed would help them flip Texas blue...Yet O’Rourke’s energetic trek through rural parts of the state has electrified a different piece of the base that’s also been missing for his party in recent years: Older supporters with the time to organize the nuts and bolts of a grassroots campaign.

    Imagine a world with affordable, clean energy, sustainable cities and communities, and decent work and economic growth for all. That is the world the United Nations imagined when it defined the 17 Global Goals for Sustainable Development with “the desire to create a future where there is no poverty, the planet is protected, and all the people enjoy peace and prosperity.” But the reality is, that world can’t exist without the equal participation, and leadership, of women—as business and political leaders, investors, and contributors to the global economy.

    Former president of Planned Parenthood Gloria Feldt told a Cornell University audience that “abortion gives women an equal seat at life’s table. Putting all of the burden of child-bearing and birthing on women violates the Constitution’s equal protection clause. Abortion is the remedy. Freeing ourselves of the obligations imposed on us by a patriarchal society is the only way we can enjoy the same power that men have monopolized through a discriminatory reproductive system.” Feldt’s remarks mirrored those of former First Daughter Chelsea Clinton who also advocated an economic rationale for preserving the court-granted right of reluctant would-be mothers to...

    The American male is caught in the maelstrom of cultural change. Once the heroic images of World War II faded from bright colors into the darker tones of sepia, "the greatest generation" began a slow fade into history. Barely 500,000 of the 16 million men who fought in World War II are now alive. What has followed the greatest are several not-so-great generations (including my own). The #MeToo movement, for all of the good it does in righting wrongs, has taken its toll on both innocent men and new standards of masculinity. When villainous men were rightly called to account...

    A strict Islamic district in Indonesia has banned men and women from having dinner together unless they are married or related to make women be 'more obedient' and 'well behaved'. The deeply Islamic Aceh province, which operates under Sharia Law, announced today it would stop unmarried couples eating together in public, an official said. Aceh is the only region in the world's most heavily populated Muslim majority country that imposes Islamic law and has come under fire in the past for putting moral restrictions on women. It also attracted global condemnation for publicly whipping people found guilty of a range...

    [Snip] Singer Ariana Grande took the stage to sing "(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman," a funeral fit for a queen also served as a reminder that there isn't a single place in this country where a woman can feel safe from sexual assault and harassment. Following Grande's performance, Pastor Charles H. Ellis III wrapped his right arm around Grande, pulled her close to him and touched her breast. He did this on stage, in a church, during a funeral -- in front of thousands of attendees. Visibly uncomfortable and tense, Grande forced her way through awkward laughs...
