  • Mother ‘stood by and watched’ (murder of 10-year old Victoria Martens)

    Albuquerque Journal ^ | 26 Aug 16 | Robert Browman, Elise Kaplan And Nicole Perez
    The scene Wednesday morning in apartment number 808 of the Arroyo Villas complex was like something out of a horror movie. A man and a woman had allegedly drugged a little girl, then raped, killed and dismembered her. Most would expect the girl’s mother to fight with everything she had to save her daughter. But Michelle Martens, according to her own reported account to police, is not that kind of mother. In her statement to police, it appears that Martens wanted to watch as her boyfriend, Fabian Gonzales, 31, and his cousin Jessica Kelley, 31, raped her 10-year-old daughter Victoria...
  • French burkini ban puzzles, upsets Muslim fashion designers

    Puzzled — and upset. That’s how some women working in the Islamic fashion industry view the furor in France over burkinis, the body-concealing swimsuit that has been banned in a growing number of seaside towns. “I am quite upset to say the least. Wearing a burkini is not a political statement, rather a choice of dress,” said Rabia Zargarpur, a Dubai-based designer who markets her Rabia Z label of so-called modest fashions online. “For Muslim women, burkinis are a symbol of liberation, not repression. Muslim women who were uncomfortable or unable to swim in mixed pools or beaches are now...

    When I invented the burkini in early 2004, it was to give women freedom, not to take it away. My niece wanted to play netball but it was a bit of a struggle to get her in the team – she was wearing a hijab. My sister had to fight for her daughter to play, had to debate the issue and ask, why is this girl prevented from playing netball because of her modesty?

    Her cabinet, the Post reports, will be packed with women "in roughly equal numbers to men and that otherwise reflects American diversity." Lobbying has already "intensified" for those and "scores of other jobs" in a new administration, the Post reports. According to the Post, out of some 4,000 political jobs to fill, more than 1,000 require Senate confirmation, and vetting, security clearances and ethics checks can take months.

    My, my, there those feminists go, complaining again. This time the whining concerns supposedly “sexist” Olympics coverage. Their problem? Many journalists are, we’re told, using different language when talking about female athletes than when speaking of male ones. Oh, the humanity! There’s the guy who credited a female swimmer’s husband/coach for her success, the talk about a six-foot-three-inch South Korean woman volley ball player’s difficulty finding a boyfriend, and a reporter who called an equestrian rider “blondie.” Putting aside the female teacher who once called me blondie when I was 13, let’s have a reality check. Do you really think...

    Does he feel the same way about Clinton's enabler? Once upon a time, the most powerful man in the world had an affair with a young intern. To this day, Bill Clinton’s dalliance with Monica Lewinsky represents precisely the collision between power, gender, and sexual politics that feminists are always carping about. A charismatic man abused his position and took advantage of an innocent. ...At least, that would be the story if Bill was a Republican. Since he’s a Democrat, feminists (and their allies in the media) excused the affair, the lies that followed, and his commission of perjury. He...

    Democrat vice presidential candidate Sen. Tim Kaine says the United States is far behind some Muslim countries in treating women equally because it is “below the global average” in the percentage of women in elected office. Kaine said in a speech at a rally in Fayetteville, North Carolina Tuesday: It took 144 years before women even got the right to vote in this country. What were we thinking when we said equality mattered, but no. One hundred and forty-four years. It took us that long to say in 1920, to say women get a right to vote. And now we’re...

Marine recruiters are turning to girls high school sports teams to find candidates who may be able to meet the Corps' rigorous physical standards, including for the front-line combat jobs now open to women. Marine Commandant Gen. Robert Neller says he wants to increase the number of women in the Corps to 1 in 10.

    The Church of England is to ban protests at the consecration of female bishops after a campaign mounted by Women and the Church (WATCH). The organisation wrote to the Archbishop of Canterbury following protests that disrupted the last four consecrations of women bishops, saying: "Such interruptions create the perception that the Church is willing to allow a woman who has been called by God and the Church, and appointed by the Crown, to be publicly insulted and undermined. "If that is so, it undermines and insults all women: and especially women for whom female bishops are potent symbols of a...

The retired professor of theology – who also was appointed in 2014 by Pope Francis to be a member of the International Theological Commission – points out in this interview that it is out of the question to make women ordained deaconesses because it would mean that they would become part of the three-fold Sacrament of...

    We expect to hear a lot of lies during an election year, and this year is certainly no exception. What is surprising is how old some of these lies are, and how often they have been shown to be lies, years ago or even decades ago. One of the oldest of these lies is that women are paid less than men for doing the same work. Like many other politically successful lies, it contains just enough of the truth to fool the gullible. Women as a group do get paid less than men as a group. But not for doing...

After slamming the machete into the face of one officer, he then turned to another and began swinging the massive blade at her.

Pope Francis announced the members of the commission on Tuesday. In May, he promised a group of religious sisters that he would set up a commission to study the question of women deaconesses.   “After intense prayer and mature reflection,” Pope Francis decided to set up this commission, the Vatican announced in a press release.

Krissoni Henderson appeared to be caught on camera angrily confronting the officer - who was investigating a complaint made against the 31-year-old. The unnamed policeman was called to New Street in Birmingham city centre at around 5.30pm on July 4 following a 999 call from a 38-year-old woman who said she feared for her safety after a verbal confrontation. She alleged she had been shouted and sworn at.

    "If there are any little girls out there who stayed up late to watch, let me just say: I may become the first woman president, but one of you is next," Hillary Clinton told the Democratic National Convention audience via satellite Tuesday night. This remark, said in a tone one might use to talk to babies, was the cherry on top of a slate of speakers who lauded Clinton’s landmark accomplishment as the country’s first female presidential nominee of a major party. The word “historic” was on everyone’s lips as Democrats claimed moral superiority for their support of a woman...

The Gallup poll found that 72 percent of Black women, who are by far Hillary Clinton supporters, fear a Donald Trump presidency. White women (at 56 percent) and Black men (at 55 percent) are a distant second and third, among those who strongly fear their candidate losing. What explains the high level of anxiety for...

Just the mention of the National Rifle Association Saturday prompted the room in Miami into a roar. At Brooklyn headquarters, aides smiled. This was, after all, the fight they wanted. Please, some thought, keep talking about guns. It was a fight that strategists saw as an upside: it calmed progressives’ furor over Kaine, seen in some circles as too moderate for a party still overcoming a passionate swoon with Bernie Sanders. And the subject of guns has a...

    Donald Trump's tough talk on law and order in a time of growing national insecurity appears to be winning over some of his fiercest skeptics - women initially put off by his swaggering tone, his clashes with female critics and past affairs. But so far those are mostly conservative women. As Trump hones his message, the challenge is to make it also resonate among independent or undecided female voters who are crucial to his hopes of winning the U.S. presidential election in November. Turmoil on the streets both abroad and at home could give Trump a new opportunity to do...

He attempted to shut down the government over Planned Parenthood funding, supported a measure that made English the nation's official language and signed one of the nation's strictest abortion laws earlier this year.

Following the unhindered influx of migrants, which was heavily advertised by media and the majority of the political establishment, Sweden has seen an equally unhindered wave of sexual attacks. To add insult to injury, blatantly non-PC stickers advocating violence against women were spotted in the town of Nybro in Sweden's southern province of Smĺland, the local news outlet 24Nybro reported.

    With Congress lined up for a battle over whether women should be required to register for the draft, there’s one group that is solidly against the idea, a new poll suggests: women themselves. Women are much less likely than men to say women should be required to register for Selective Service when they turn 18, according to a poll conducted earlier this month by The Economist/YouGov. Thirty-nine percent of women supported registration for women, compared to 61 percent of men.

    The U.S. is the breast country in the world. American women have the biggest boobs across the globe, with the average babe’s bosom measuring a D-cup (which would be an F in European sizes). The Journal of Female Health Sciences busted out this eye-raising new research after analyzing the volume of breast tissue in 342,000 women ages 28-30 in 108 different countries. They only surveyed ladies who were not pregnant or breastfeeding — and those whose boobs were not surgically enhanced — to get the most natural measurements. “Women born in the U.S.A have by far larger breasts than women...

    The Marine Corps is eliminating the job title “basic infantryman” along with 18 others and replacing them with terms that are gender neutral. Others titles, including “rifleman” and “mortarman,” will remain the same, due to their historical and cultural significance for Marines. The service plans to replace 19 of its military occupational specialty titles, the Marine Corps Times reported Tuesday, seven months after Navy Secretary Ray Mabus ordered the Marine Corps to conduct a review of all job titles to ensure gender neutrality. For most of the 19 terms that will be changed, the word “Marine” will replace the...

The hashtag #BabesForTrump, started by women who support Donald Trump, is usually accompanied by pictures of attractive women wearing the presumptive Republican nominee’s hats or t-shirts while showing off a generous amount of cleavage.

    The Women for Trump Facebook group was set up as a voice for women who “are fed up with loser politicians who won’t stand up for our freedom or for the USA.” The WFT Facebook page currently has 27,000 followers and is one of the most popular Trump fan pages. Today the Women for Trump Facebook page organizer received this warning from Facebook. The message said Facebook “has received many reports from your page” and to, “Please review your posts for reasons that you have violated our terms.” Facebook then threatens to suspend the page—

    Last week, history was made. Or should I say that her-story was made? Hillary Clinton became the first woman to win the nomination of a major political party. It was a historical moment in American politics. It was also a deeply hysterical moment for many women. In fact, so great was the emotion surrounding this landmark achievement that even a conservative female friend of mine had this to say about the nomination: “Regardless of your politics, you have to admit that Hillary’s nomination was a landmark event. It showed that women have come a long way and that they can...

    U. S. Marine Capt. Katie Petronio was a dynamo upon graduation from Bowdoin College in 2007. Standing 5 feet 3 inches, she could squat 200 pounds, and she seemed as ready for a combat role as many men were. But just five years later, her body had figuratively started crumbling under the stress of service in Iraq and Afghanistan as a combat engineer officer. Her spine had compressed her nerves to the point of causing neuropathy. Her thigh muscles started to atrophy. She lost 17 pounds and was diagnosed with polycystic ovarian syndrome, which led to infertility. The experience prompted...

    It's no secret that Donald Trump has struggled to win over female voters. Polls show more than 60 percent of women have an unfavorable opinion of the presumptive Republican nominee. But, as the campaign pivots to the general election, are Republican women reconsidering Trump? It's this group of largely white women Trump needs in November. In the key battleground state of Ohio, there are plenty of women who adore Trump — and plenty of women who despise him. But many Republican women seem to be somewhere in the middle. They may not like Trump's tone, but they're willing to vote...

    ...The women of the Right are allowed to believe things that the women of the Left are not. They are allowed to believe there is a difference between women and men, female and male, and that those differences are real, not a false cultural construct imposed by a self-interested, manipulative patriarchy. Unlike Gloria Steinem, they can express their femininity in any way they choose to, without fear of being accused of a calumnization of the sisterhood. Even more, women of the Right are allowed to accept obvious things rather than engage in exhausting psychic gymnastics to get to a place...

    Ashleigh Shackelford says she's owed everything from housing to free Beyoncé tickets. According to a piece on an "intersectional feminist media" website, "fat, black" women are owed reparations due to the "trauma" that comes with being one. "The case for reparations for fat Black b****** is: f*** you, pay us," self-described "queer, agender Black fat femme writer, artist, and cultural producer" Ashleigh Shackelford writes in a piece for Wear Your Voice. [Snip] What kind of reparations? She makes sure to clarify that, too: Let me be clear, though: when I say, "F*** you, pay me," I mean, "F*** YOU. PAY...
