  • House Panel Approves Measure to Require Women to Register for Draft

    Military.com ^ | April 28, 2016 | Matthew Cox
    The House Armed Services Committee on Wednesday approved by a narrow margin an amendment to a defense bill to require women to register for the draft. Rep. Duncan Hunter, a Republican from California, proposed the amendment to lift the restriction on women registering for the selective service at a committee-wide mark-up session of the proposed fiscal 2017 National Defense Authorization Act. "Here is why I think this is important; it doesn't matter in this debate whether you think women should be in the infantry or be in special operations," Hunter said during the session on Wednesday night. "I personally don't....

    Gallup has a new poll out that shows former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton (D-IL, AR, NY, DC) is having trouble energizing women in her own party. But the gender gap persists within both parties. An aggregated analysis of March and April responses shows that Republican men are eight points more likely than Republican women to be following the election very closely, while Democratic men are 11 points more likely than Democratic women. “Pure” independents — those who do not lean to either party — are following the news less closely than those in either party, regardless of gender,...

Seven months later and the US Army and the Pentagon are still refusing to turn over the Ranger School records of the three female graduates. For those who haven’t followed the story, here’s a summary of the events leading up to the present time. Captain Kristen Griest and First...

    BEIJING — To mark China’s first National Security Education Day, a Beijing district put up posters warning women that handsome foreign men may be spies. Titled Dangerous Love, the comic book-style panel of posters tells the story of Xiao Li, a young government worker, and David, a red-haired "academic." David and Li meet at a dinner party, and he soon begins to woo Li with gifts and flowers. She marvels at her luck. “Having a handsome, romantic, cultured foreign boyfriend is great!” she says in frame six. David, though, is a foreign spy intent on stealing Chinese state secrets. One...

Sofia, from Cambridge in Massachusetts, had written to President Barack Obama in 2014 after a school project on historic American heroes. 'I realized no women had their face on our currency, so I went home and wrote the letter,' she told WCVB. The schoolgirl demanded to know why there were...

Alexander Hamilton, the nation’s first Treasury secretary, will remain on the front of the $10 bill, but the back of that bill, which currently bears an image of the Treasury building, will feature leaders of the suffrage movement. The reverse of the $5 bill will be overhauled to include opera singer Marian Anderson, First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt and civil rights leader...

    Morning Joe regulars know that Mika Brzezinski has made a virtual art form out of her facial expressions and body language. On today's show, Mika put on a particularly demonstrative display of horror while asserting what she sees as Ted Cruz's lack of appeal to women voters. The question on the table had been Donald Trump's surprisingly strong showing among women in yesterday's New York Republican primary. The Donald scored 59% of women voters, almost equaling the 63% of men voters he garnered. Gene Robinson was stumped to explain it. When he posited Ted Cruz as the alternative to Trump,...
  • Falsehoods and Feel-Good Myths About the Underground Railroad and Harriet Tubman

    By making explicit or implicit connections between the Underground Railroad and Tubman's trips, and by depicting Tubman as an Underground Railroad superstar, the textbooks imply that the paramount purpose of the Underground Railroad was to launch slave-stealing expeditions. That is false. The Underground Railroad was not in the business of staging raids, and Tubman's excursions were idiosyncrasies at best. (...) The salient points that occur again and again in the textbooks' accounts of Tubman -- such as the claim that she made nineteen trips to liberate slaves, and the claim that slave-owners put a huge price on her head --...

    New York was recently the scene of a heated debate on the status of Muslim women under Islamic law.

Dutt, known for her soft spot for Muslims in her own country of India, ... Hirsi Ali immediately recognized she was being set up to run a gauntlet of criticism and so chose to go for the jugular. “I reject Islamic law because it’s totalitarian ... because it’s bigoted and especially bigoted against women… Where...

    At a New York campaign rally for Hillary Clinton Monday, Planned Parenthood’s Cecile Richards pretty much said that pro-life women aren’t really women, nor do they support women’s rights. It wasn’t that specific, as she said, “A woman voting for Ted Cruz is like a chicken voting for Colonel Sanders.” So, as a woman, you must vote for a pro-abortion candidate? And if you don’t, you’re stupid, misinformed, or worse, not really supportive of American women. It’s typical liberal bullying. Conform to my principles because if you don’t–your whole existence doesn’t make sense. I can’t convince you, so you must...

More than 3 million people have seen the anti-Trump ad in which women repeat real quotes about women from Donald Trump, such as “bimbo” and “fat pig.” Trump described Megyn Kelly as having “blood coming out of her wherever” and mocked Carly Fiorina’s appearance by saying, “Look at that face.” He tweeted a picture of Melania Trump next to Heidi Cruz, as if potential first ladies are contestants in a Miss Universe pageant. And when asked whether women should be punished in...

    While not as heavily reported in time past, women are becoming major players in the gun industry and ownership. Contrary to popular belief, women are not stalwarts of gun control politics–they want to protect themselves as any other American. That’s why across the country record numbers of women are lining up to obtain their gun permits. In fact, since 2007, there has been a 270 percent increase in women having concealed carry permits. So, the truth of the matter is that women have always been around guns; it was that no one was catering to their needs, especially when it...

    The U.S. Army on Friday announced it has approved the first 22 women to be commissioned as infantry and armor officers after new rules issued last month opened all combat roles to female service members. The move is a major milestone on the road to fully integrating women into combat jobs. The Army is taking a leadership first position by first placing female soldiers in leadership roles in combat roles that were not previously open to them, then allowing those women to train and mentor female enlisted combat soldiers. The 22 women are near completion of their officer training and...

    The New York state senate is poised to eliminate New Yorkers’ so-called “tampon tax.” Feminine hygiene products are currently taxed as “luxury items” in New York, but a new bill could result in their reclassification as tax-exempt necessities, instead. The Republican-run senate passed the bill unanimously on Monday (April 11) after it had passed the state assembly in March, also with full support from lawmakers. The bill now goes to the state’s governor Andrew Cuomo, a father of three daughters, who has said in the past that the tax should be repealed. “It is a way of providing some tax...

    White women have been dying prematurely at higher rates since the turn of this century, passing away in their 30s, 40s and 50s in a slow-motion crisis driven by decaying health in small-town America, according to an analysis of national health and mortality statistics by The Washington Post. Among African Americans, Hispanics and even the oldest white Americans, death rates have continued to fall. But for white women in what should be the prime of their lives, death rates have spiked upward. In one of the hardest-hit groups — rural white women in their late 40s — the death rate...

He warned "weak-spirited" men who are "obsessed with women" could hurt female drivers. The cleric added family members would not know where their female relatives were if they were allowed to drive. . . . The sheikh is known for being outspoken and in 2014 claimed Twitter was "the source of all evil". He has also spoken out on animation films, reportedly issued a fatwa allowing men to eat their wife if they are starving and banned Muslims from playing chess.

    Actions Speak Louder Than Words – This is an older interview with Ivanka Trump from October of 2015. However, within the interview you see why the progressive left (within Hillary Clinton Camp) is desperately afraid of Donald Trump. Candidate Donald Trump has an actual history of empowering, advancing, and promoting strong women within his organization. Everything about Ivanka Trump runs completely counter to the narrative the progressive left need to advance Clinton. In this interview Ivanka absolutely destroys the archetype ‘sexism’ approach.

    That Donald Trump is having a serious problem with the women’s vote should not be a surprise as he is an anachronism in his outlook towards the opposite sex. While he has adapted to some degree, as he does employ women executives in his real estate development and marketing business, Trump is, as were many of his generation, a product of the male chauvinist mindset of the 1950’s and 60’s. I am a few years older than Trump and during the 1960’s I was also steeped in the then-prevalent male outlook towards women. The philosophical outlook of Playboy magazine and...

    On April 1st, the combat exemption for women in the U.S. military was lifted. This means women can and will be involuntarily assigned to infantry and ground units. This also means that brutal and horrific violence against women is now legal as long as it comes from the hands of the enemy. The American public is largely removed from the military and we didn’t even hear a whimper from the fathers and mothers of America that their daughter on active duty now can potentially be assigned to a combat unit. It’s called orders. Choice is gone. This isn’t about women...

    Sexism is driving women away from the GOP front-runner Donald Trump and the Republican Party, potentially providing a windfall to Hillary Clinton in a general election. But to ride women's discontent into the Oval Office, of course, Clinton has to win the Democratic nomination. And while she has maintained a strong advantage with women voters overall, she's not doing well with all women. White millennial women favor Bernie Sanders. Perhaps that's because the best rationale for Clinton's candidacy hasn't been effectively communicated to millennial women. There is a powerful case to be made for electing a woman president, and it...

Republican presidential candidates have suffered a gender gap for decades, but Mr. Trump turned the gap into an abyss, which polls show will doom him to a sweeping loss in a general election matchup against Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton.

And his low standing with women has certainly become a much-discussed topic among pundits analyzing the Donald Trump candidacy. An overlooked story, however, is that Hillary Clinton, who might become the first female president in the history of the United States, isn't far behind in her unfavorability ratings among women. Our just-released poll shows that Donald Trump has a 68 percent unfavorable rating among women. But 58 percent of women say they view Hillary Clinton unfavorably.

"Yeah, it was a mistake," Trump told New York Times. "If I had to do it again, I wouldn't have sent it."

    Marines across the Corps will be challenged on their unconscious prejudices and presuppositions as women get the opportunity to become grunts for the first time. The Marine Corps is rolling out mandatory training for all Marines before the first future female rifleman hits boot camp, aiming to set conditions for a smooth transition and head off cultural resistance. Mobile training teams will be dispatched to installations across the Corps throughout May and June to offer a two-day seminar to majors and lieutenant colonels, Col. Anne Weinberg, deputy director of the Marine Corps Force Innovation Office, told reporters Thursday. Those officers...

    A study finds that men are far more motivated than women to retire so they can spend time with their spouses. Spending more quality time with your partner is one reason to retire, right? Well, that may depend on whether you ask a man or a woman—and the difference may be a warning sign for men... While nearly 60% of men said having time to spend with their spouse or partner was a strong factor influencing their decision to retire, only 43% of women said the same. Far more women, 71%, cited the prospect of spending time with their grandchildren....

    The tampon tax will be abolished by the summer, George Osborne announced last night. The Chancellor said that legislation for a zero rate of VAT on women’s sanitary products will be introduced next week as part of the Finance Bill. The move came after David Cameron was forced to beg EU chief Jean-Claude Juncker for permission to reduce the rate from the current 5 per cent minimum allowed under Brussels rules. The prime minister had to use a European summit on the migrant crisis to plead for help on reducing British rates on female sanitary products.

    If this poll accurately reflects the US electorate, get ready for the mother of all gender gaps (so to speak) in November if Donald Trump wins the Republican presidential nomination. The frontrunner has a major problem with women, according to this Reuters-Ipsos poll conducted over the first half of March, and it has gotten worse rather than better over the last six months. Half of all women have a “very unfavorable” view of Trump, in an election that could pit him against the first female major-party nominee: Real estate billionaire Donald Trump’s coarse rhetoric has won him some fans,...

Each umbrella will have a height of 45 meters and weigh 16 tons. It will give shade to an area of 2,400 square meters when open. Some 25 engineers, specialist...

    Navy Petty Officer Lentoyi White, 26, feared she’d be dismissed from the service after twice failing the Navy’s body composition assessment (BCA), which measures body fat percentage. But in January, the Navy loosened its body fat restrictions for both men and women, giving White and thousands of other sailors another chance to stay in the Navy. “I am very grateful for a second chance with this new policy,” said White, a single mother with a 5-year-old daughter. White has gone from 212 pounds to 188 and is optimistic she’ll pass this spring under the new standards. Under the Navy’s previous...

    The Indian Air Force has advised its three women trainees, who are in line to become India’s first female fighter pilots, to put off motherhood for at least four years after they get commissioned into the IAF in June. IAF vice chief Air Marshal BS Dhanoa told HT on Thursday that an advisory to avoid pregnancy was issued to the women training at an IAF facility near Hyderabad so that their training schedule was not disrupted. The women are preparing to head for the last leg of their combat training in June, a watershed in the IAF’s 83-year history. “Undisturbed...

    But while multiple countries have now suspended the bloc's beloved Schengen in an effort to "stop the madness," as it were, it's too late to stop the chaos. As we've documented extensively, Europe was remarkably resilient in the wake of the Paris attacks, but after New Year's Eve, when (rightly or wrongly) adult male Mid-East asylum seekers garnered a reputation for sexual assault, sentiment soured. Markedly. Since then, the entirety of the EU has been on high alert. Not for terrorists, but for sexual predators of "foreign origin." One particularly divisive issue is the extent to which officials have tended...

    (CNSNews.com) - In a speech marking Women’s History Month, which was delivered at the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday, First Lady Michelle Obama celebrated the decision taken by her husband’s administration to put young women in all combat roles in the U.S. military. “Thanks to brilliant, fearless women like General Vaught, today, more than 200,000 women are serving our country in just about every role and rank,” said Mrs. Obama. “They’re flying fighter jets, training new recruits; they’re graduating Army Ranger School--and I met those graduates. They are awesome. Fierce! And as you’ve already heard, they will soon be welcome in...

    As a fishing spouse, you’ll find yourself putting up with things the average spouse could never relate to. While it in no way reflects how much your spouse loves you, when it comes to fishing, you often take a backseat. Before the honeymoon phase is over, you'll find yourself making a whole host of unique concessions on behalf of your spouse’s favorite hobby. Here are 10 surefire signs you're married to a fisherman (or woman): 1. There are always fish to be caught.
