  • The Dark Side of the IVF Industry, From a Survivor

    When couples struggling to conceive approach an infertility clinic for help, they’re not just patients seeing a doctor: they’re also healthcare consumers navigating a billion-dollar industry. All too often, they’re also sucked onto a moving sidewalk designed to effortlessly take them from one intervention to another, without stopping to heal their spirits, discern their options, or possibly close their wallets. That’s what happened to me. I should be clear: I feel that most of the doctors we talked to were sincerely trying to help. This was especially the case with the reproductive endocrinologists who worked with nonprofit hospitals. They are...

    Iranian women will be allowed to enter a football stadium this week for the first time in nearly 40 years after pressure from soccer’s governing body FIFA forced Iran to lift its male-only policy, according to FIFA and state-run media. FIFA ordered Iran to end its ban on letting women enter stadiums during an inspection visit last month. The organization said the ban breaches international soccer statutes prohibiting discrimination.

    Too many women waste years of their lives hoping they can talk a boyfriend into marriage. Women who master the eight dating rules don’t have to. In the 1950s, that oft-ridiculed era when women all over the country were purportedly miserable, marriage proposals were so common women had to turn down several potential husbands before deciding on the right one.That was certainly the case for my mother, who was born in 1930. As a young girl, I found countless love letters from Charlie, George, Frank—and others whose names I can’t recall—that all contained marriage proposals. They were stored in my...
  • Transgender Men Ads Lead to 8-Point Voter Swing to Repub Matt Bevin from Dem Andy Beshear

    A conservative group notes polling data shows an eight-point swing in voters’ shift to incumbent GOP Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin from Democrat candidate Andy Beshear after they view ads highlighting Beshear’s support of biological men competing in women’s sports. The Campaign for American Principles (CAP) states: The ads are moving voters in an incredible way — the chart below represents over 2,000 respondents. The gray bar represents Bevin’s support among voters BEFORE seeing the ad and the blue bar is Bevin’s support from voters AFTER seeing the ad. For voters 45-54, Bevin sees an 8pt increase in support, 55-64 give...
  • Women, Minorities Fueling Increase in Concealed Handgun Permits

    Townhall ^ | October 4, 2019 | John R. Lott, Jr.
    Each year brings a new record increase in the number of concealed handgun permits. The rate of growth in permits among women and minorities has far outpaced growth among white men. The data paint a picture of incredibly law-abiding permit holders, the vast majority living outside America’s insular media capitals. A new report from the Crime Prevention Research Center shows that there are now 18.7 million concealed handgun permits in the U.S., up 1.4 million since last August. Far more people carry guns today than in 2007, when there were only 4.6 million permits. Sixteen states now no longer require...

    We’ve frequently reported on the subversive, hyper-sexualized works of Teen Vogue, such as their instruction on anal sex, including sex toys on back-to-school lists, and, most recently, offering their teen readers advice on procuring an abortion without their parents’ knowledge. Now, in an article titled, “What Trans & Non-Binary Menstruators Should Know About Periods,” Seventeen Magazine enlists the help of a transgender menstruation activist to help its readers find “inclusive products” for menstruation. If only this were satire. The article, written by self-described “Period Prince” and “non-binary & trans period activist” Cass Bliss (a biological female), reads, in part: "When...

    A friend with ties to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia who must remain anonymous sends the following.Under the leadership of Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman, Saudi Arabia continues its modernization and economic diversity program.  Nowhere is this more evident than in the gradual changes in public dress codes.  Currently, women in professional settings may do away with the veil and in some cases the head covering (hijab) depending upon work conditions and family traditions.  In fact, the mutawa, the Saudi religious police, effectively lost enforcement authority about three years ago.  And of course, women are allowed to drive. Now...

    Istanbul (AFP) - Dozens of women protested in Istanbul on Saturday to denounce rising violence against women and the government's failure to stop brutal attacks across the country. They gathered in the Kadikoy neighbourhood on the Asian side of Istanbul, recounting harrowing stories of women recently murdered across the country, including Emine Bulut, whose killing by her ex-husband in August sparked outrage. "Stop the murder of women!", "Stop male violence!" and "Do not watch violence, do something," they shouted.

    FULL TITLE: How the Pill transforms your personality as revealed in a landmark book by a top psychologist: It changes who you fall for, It dictates the clothes you wear AND it lowers your libido (but the good news? You are less likely to divorce) After more than a decade on the Pill, our family complete, my husband and I decided on a more permanent way to prevent pregnancy. He took the lead by having a vasectomy, and I ditched the Pill. But a couple of months later, I realised that I felt . . . different. I didn’t notice...

    Earlier this summer, a Citizen’s Petition was filed to the FDA requesting greater transparency concerning the many evidence-based health risks and side effects of different forms of hormonal contraceptives. We at Natural Womanhood published a breakdown of the FDA petition into a more digestible format in order to explain the forms of contraception discussed in the petition, the research behind it, and the overall goals and potential changes if this petition is successfully received. Ultimately, the goal of the Citizen’s Petition is to compel the Food and Drug Administration to better inform all prescribers and consumers of hormonal birth control...

    On Sunday, September 15, Marie-Ange Brumelot had just crested a hill in Central Park on her third and final lap of an 18-mile race hosted by the New York Road Runners. At that point, she spotted her husband, Luciano Medina, ahead of her. “I didn’t realize he was in the lead,” Brumelot, 26 of the Bronx, told Runner’s World. “There were nearly 5,000 runners participating, running anything from six minutes to 14 minutes per mile, so we were lapping people. Of course I wanted to catch him.” Brumelot, who is running the Chicago Marathon on October 13, planned a hard...

    Of the 12 people who have walked on the moon, zero have been women. NASA's Artemis program aims to change that by landing the first woman on the moon. "I have a daughter. She is 11 years old, and I want her to see herself in the same position that our current, very diverse astronaut corps currently sees itself, having the opportunity to go to the moon," NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine said in an agency town hall May 14. "In the 1960s, young ladies didn't have the opportunity to see themselves in that role. Today they do, and I think...

    On Tuesday, former Vice President Joe Biden said his childcare tax credit would put "720 million" women into the workforce. The problem? There were only 327.1 million people in America in 2018, according to the Census Bureau. The bureau's "population clock" estimated the current population at 329.7 million as of Tuesday evening. "If you get a tax break for a racehorse, why in god’s name couldn’t we provide an $8,000 tax credit for everybody who has childcare costs? It would put 720 million women back in the workforce," Biden said at a "Workers 2020" summit put on by the Philadelphia...

    For most parents, daughters are a blessing. But in many parts of south and east Asia, where there exists a strong, culturally-rooted preference for sons, daughters are often unwanted and often selectively aborted prior to birth simply on account of their sex. In many Asian cultures, sons are strongly valued to carry on the family name, inherit property, or to provide parents with care and financial support in sickness and old age. Daughters, on the other hand, are often seen as a burden due to the practice of dowry in places like India, and due to the traditional custom that...

    “I know I’m in the presence of the community,” Rep. Karen Bass (D-CA) said to a room of mainly Black women who gathered at Washington D.C.’s Walter E. Lee Convention Center on Wednesday for the first day of the 2019 Congressional Black Caucus Foundation Annual Legislative Conference. Her opening remarks helped to kick-off a powerful 3-hour event in which thought leaders, political leaders, and engaged citizens alike, convened to unpack the findings of the newest study conducted by Black Women’s Roundtable and ESSENCE Magazine. Before digging into the research, Bass made it clear that going into 2020 Black women need...

    What happens when you cross a deviant misogynistic sexual fetish with people who are intellectually disabled? You get a sexually exploitative nightmare that is the equivalent to a turn-of-the-century freak show. As the mother of a son with Down Syndrome, I am all too aware of the challenges my son will face. Mostly, I am afraid of how other people will treat him. Even before he was born, he was discriminated against for having an extra chromosome. I was encouraged by the medical community to abort him. The world sees him as a burden and I just see him as...

    A record number of women are running for president in 2020, and now two women look like serious contenders for the presidential nomination — Elizabeth Warren and Kamala Harris, both of whom rose in the polls after strong performances in the first Democratic debate. Joe Biden is still in the lead, but Warren and Harris may be starting to chip away at one of the central conceits of the 2020 race so far: the idea that Biden has the best shot at defeating President Trump. For months now, voters have told reporters that they want to elect a woman —...

    If it seems like the number of complaints from your female friends about not being able to find a man is growing, we may finally know why. Somewhere between 1979 and 2008, Americans decided it was much less worth it to get hitched: the share of 25- to 39-year-old women who were currently married fell 10 percent among those with college degrees, 15 percent for those with some college, and a full 20 percent for women with a high-school education or less. This great American marriage decline—a drop from 72 percent of U.S. adults being wed in 1960 to half...
