    For some who attended the Women’s Unity Rally in Manhattan’s Foley Square Saturday, Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's speech was the highlight. "Justice is not a concept we read about in a book," she said. "Justice is about the water we drink. Justice is about the air we breathe." But for Victoria Jones, 22, the most moving part of the rally was when the organizers invited a woman up to speak in Spanish about her job as a dishwasher.

    The anti-Trump pussy march dwindled to 10,000 participants this year in Washington DC. This was down from the estimated one-million who turned out for the violent and vulgar march in 2017. Several leaders of this Democrat pussy march continue to endorse anti-Semitic positions. And the co-leader refuses to condemn Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan.

    Women will march in hundreds of U.S. cities and overseas on Saturday to mark the second anniversary of demonstrations that drew millions of protesters to the streets the day after Republican President Donald Trump’s inauguration in January 2017. Women’s March, a national nonprofit organization that evolved from the initial Washington march, is again hosting its main event in Washington, with hundreds of “sister” marches in other cities. March On, a separate grassroots coalition that also grew from the original march, has coordinated hundreds of marches in cities such as Boston, Houston, Baltimore and Denver. Leaders of both groups say they...

    Sioux City, Iowa (CNN) — Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand defended her decision to call on former Sen. Al Franken to resign after allegations of unwanted touching and kissing were made against him, earning praise from a friendly audience of Iowans in Sioux City on Friday. Gillibrand, who was first to call on Franken to resign, clearly came prepared to answer questions about the Minnesota Democrat, whose ouster after a series of allegations in 2017 remains a contentious issue for the party. Some on the left, including a number of top Democratic donors, believe Franken was pushed out too quickly, while others...

    A former congressional staffer filed a lawsuit last week saying she was raped by an employee at the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, and when she said she was taking legal action against the foundation she was fired by Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee. The employee, who is suing as a Jane Doe plaintiff, is seeking at least $75,000 in damages for derailing her career and for emotional duress. She says she was raped in 2015 by the coordinator of her intern program at the foundation, and says there was DNA and text messages and phone calls that proved the encounter happened....

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., used a strange – and sexually charged – phrase to describe to The Washington Post her plan for implementing a progressive agenda. “... enjoy being exhausted for the next two years while we run train on the progressive agenda,” the newly minted congresswoman told the newspaper. The choice of words sent the Internet into a tizzy, as it has a well-known and highly disturbing connotation. According to the Urban Dictionary, to “run train” means “to gangbang” someone. The phrase was injected into more mainstream parlance in October, after a client of adult film industry lawyer Michael...

    A Gillette advert which references bullying, the #MeToo movement and toxic masculinity has split opinion online. The razor company's short film, called Believe, plays on their famous tagline "The best a man can get", replacing it with "The best men can be". The company says it wants men to hold each other "accountable". Some have praised its message, which aims to update the company's previous message about masculinity, but others say Gillette is now "dead" to them. It currently has 23,000 likes and 214,000 dislikes, at time of writing - and it's increasing all the time.

    Gillette addresses “toxic masculinity” in a new digital ad campaign aimed at men, the latest message from an advertiser attempting to change societal norms. The ad, dubbed “We Believe,” opens with audio of news about the current #MeToo movement. A narrator then goes on to dispute the notion that “boys will be boys,” asking, “Is this the best a man can get? Is it? We can’t hide from it. It has been going on far too long. We can’t laugh it off, making the same old excuses.” The ad puts a new spin on the brand’s 30-year tagline, “The Best...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Thousands of requests by men to bring in child and adolescent brides to live in the United States were approved over the past decade, according to government data obtained by The Associated Press. In one case, a 49-year-old man applied for admission for a 15-year-old girl. The approvals are legal: The Immigration and Nationality Act does not set minimum age requirements. And in weighing petitions for spouses or fiancees, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services goes by whether the marriage is legal in the home country and then whether the marriage would be legal in the state where...

    A registered sex offender on the lam after being convicted in a Chicago home invasion may be in or traveling to Southern California, federal officials said Thursday.

The FBI believes he’s corresponded with associates in Riverside County and could be traveling in Southern California. The convict should be considered armed and dangerous, officials said. A reward of up to $50,000 has been attached...

    While not on a par with what is happening in Hollywood, the SEIU has its own sexual harassment scandal going on. Buzzfeed reports that one union leader has been fired and another resigned after complaints about their interactions with female staffers..... More than a dozen current and former staffers interviewed by BuzzFeed News said complaints about top-level staff on the Fight for 15 were an open secret, and that complaints about abusive behavior by organizers who reported to top strategist Courtney led to no action. In October, the union suspended Courtney, following his marriage to a union employee. Sources said...

She told The Washington Post that McCloskey groped her several times while she was going to pastoral counseling with him to discuss marital...
