    .. In the Muslim World? HBO's "Real Time" host Bill Maher wondered why the way women are treated in the Muslim world isn't more of a cause for feminists during an interview with author and activist Gloria Steinem on Friday. Maher asked, "Why aren't the way women are treated in the Muslim world considered more of a feminist cause?" Steinem responded that it is a feminist cause, and that women in the Muslim world consider their treatment a feminist cause. After she added, "All monotheism is a problem." Maher responded, "Yes, but not quite as much." Steinem then said that...

    The feminist writer Gloria Steinem apologized on Sunday for remarks about young women who support Bernie Sanders, not long after Hillary Clinton defended Madeleine Albright over her comment that there is "a special place in hell" for women who do not support Clinton. Steinem posted her apology to Facebook, writing that she "misspoke" on Friday when on a talk show she spoke about women who support Clinton's rival in the Democratic presidential race, Senator Bernie Sanders. Appearing on HBO's Real Time with Bill Maher, Steinem said women "get more activist as they grow older. And when you're younger, you think:...

    Hillary Clinton’s older feminist supporters have a message for young women who are not backing her candidacy: Shame on you. Women were expected to help power Mrs. Clinton to the Democratic nomination, but as she struggles to overcome a tough challenge from Senator Bernie Sanders, her support among them has been surprisingly shaky. Young women, in particular, have been drawn to the septuagenarian socialist from Vermont, and the dynamic has disappointed feminists who dreamed of Mrs. Clinton’s election as a capstone to the movement. Two feminist icons of Mrs. Clinton’s generation made their frustration known over the weekend, calling on...

    During the 2008 presidential campaign, Republican Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin referred to Madeline Albright's somewhat well-known saying, found on a Starbucks coffee cup, that "There's a special place in Hell for women who don't help other women." At the time, Albright, who served as Secretary of State under Bill Clinton, huffed: "Though I am flattered that Governor Palin has chosen to cite me as a source of wisdom, what I said had nothing to do with politics." She naturally followed that statement with an intense political attack on Palin and GOP presidential nominee John McCain. Now that Democrat Hillary...

    North Korea on Friday endorsed a march by the feminist activist Gloria Steinem across the heavily fortified demilitarized zone (DMZ) that separates it from South Korea. The Associated Press reported that Steinem plans to lead an all-female march called Women Cross DMZ. Organizers now hope South Korea will also approve the journey, tentatively scheduled for May 24. [Snip] Ahn and the other organizers are using the walk to call on President Obama and the U.N. for a formal peace treaty ending the Korean War. That conflict ended in relative stalemate after an armistice in 1953.

The May 24 walk includes Nobel laureates, disarmament activists and U.S. feminist Gloria Steinem. On Friday The New York Times reported organizers received conditional approval for the walk from both Seoul and Pyongyang.

During the show, Steinem praised abortion for giving her “my life” and bashed the controversy surrounding Planned Parenthood’s practice of aborted baby parts. She blamed the “attack” on Planned Parenthood on everything from the “ultra-right wing” to “patriarchy” and a “long-term racist system.” Host Tavis Smiley hailed Steinem as a “feminist icon” and “renowned social activist” before asking about her newly published book, My Life on the Road....

In her book, Unnatural selection: Choosing boys over girls, and the consequences of a world full of men, pro-abortion author Mara Hvistendahl, a correspondent for Science magazine, blamed ultrasound technology and abortion for the gendercide. This is simply common sense. I give Steinem points for raising the issue, particularly at a Planned Parenthood event, since it was only last...

After conceding that Hamas is intentionally making civilian casualties more likely, she said that it was nevertheless the case that those causalities are sapping Israel of its moral authority.

I don't recall the exact move, but I remember her flipping her opponent, the excitement and the pin. More than that, I remember the reaction. The ultra-masculine 145-pounder threw his headgear across the gym and stormed out the door as Deborah stood there awaiting a handshake. It was embarrassing. Not because the guy lost to a girl -- Deborah had crumpled plenty of overconfident XY chromosomes over her three years on the mat. But because I...

    Solution to crisis at the Bank of England: Female staff should wear lipstick and high heels By DAN NEWLING 02nd February 2009 A Bank of England summit held to tell women what to wear has been condemned as sexist As Britain plunges into its worst recession for 70 years, the economic superbrains at the Bank of England have been asking some searching questions. But while the vital issues of interest rates and bank bail-outs may have exercised the minds of many financial high-fliers, others have found time to turn their thoughts to an even more pressing agenda. Like should I...

    Her defiant speeches are peppered with references to her gender. She told a crowd of some 3,000 - more than two thirds of them women - in Coral Gables, Florida, that America needed "a president who will roll up her sleeves and get to work for you" and a woman to "clean house" in Washington. Mrs Clinton's main remaining chance of beating her Democratic rival, Senator Barack Obama, lies in persuading the vast majority of about 200 undecided super-delegates - party officials - to reverse the elected delegate tally, which the Illinois senator has already won. Making an explicit pitch...

    Geraldine Ferraro may not vote for Barack Obama because of his terribly sexist ways. The most damning charge against Obama is Sweetie-gate, ... It is my understanding that feminists dont like being called Sweetie. (Kitten and Pussycat should also be avoided.) In fact, the vast majority of women dont care for such terms of endearment.

    NEW YORK (AP) - The wives of five 2008 presidential hopefuls on Tuesday traded tales of juggling their kids, marriages and self-esteem in the maelstrom of a national campaign. Republicans Cindy McCain, Jeri Thompson and Ann Romney joined Democrats Michelle Obama and Elizabeth Edwards at the California Women's Conference, an annual gathering in Long Beach hosted by Maria Shriver, the state's first lady. Shriver, a former television news anchor, moderated the panel. Political differences scarcely were mentioned during the hourlong discussion as they described how they keep up a grueling schedule of campaign appearances while trying to preserve time with...

    Tories threat to women's groups: NDP Toronto red Star Sep. 20, 2006. 03:42 PM OTTAWA (CP) The federal Conservative government is threatening the survival of womens organizations by delaying funding, the NDP charged today.

It looks like Bev Oda is spoiling to dismantle the Status of Women Department. The National Association of Women and the Law closed its doors Sept. 12 due to a lack of federal funding, the NDP...
