    Since Monday night’s presidential debate, Donald Trump’s alleged sexism has predictably become a focal point of the Hillary Clinton campaign. The former secretary of state accused Mr. Trump of being a sexist fat-shamer whose acts have disqualified him from holding the highest office in the land. Trump, politicking horrifically, only deepened the wound by vocalizing Hillary’s claim in his and his surrogates’ subsequent interviews.But, unlike Trump was able to point out, Hillary is no “saint girl” either. Mrs. Clinton has been accused of threatening, smearing and targeting women her husband has sexually assaulted or carried out consensual affairs with. 1. Hillary...

    Earlier this year a government committee had voted strongly against the ban, Swiss news service 20 minuten reported. The ruling will have to undergo further scrutiny and votes before it could be made law. Members voted in favour of a ruling that no person shall cover his face in public places and in places or hide in the public domain or the provision of public services (excluding sacred sites). Blick am Abend reported that CVP National Councillor Elisabeth Schneider-Schneiter said: The Burqa is an expression of misogynistic Islamist ideology. This symbol we need to halt.

    Editor's Note: This piece was written by Phyllis Schlafly's son Andy.Phyllis Schlafly was with us a glorious 92 years, and active in politics for more than 70 of them. It is difficult to identify any issue that she was not on the right side of, typically years or decades before others rallied beside her. She wrote or spoke out on nearly every controversial American political matter, and the conservative movement today is based largely on work that she did five, ten, twenty, and even sixty years ago. Though we grieve her passing, she leaves us with a legacy that will...

    Dawn Dolpp isnt a slave to fashion, preferring function over form. Which is why she used to secure her handgun in her purse with a Velcro strip as recently as 10 years ago. Today, Mrs. Dolpp and other gun-toting women like her dont have to resort to homemade craft projects to provide themselves with holsters and other accessories for their firearms: Gun-related companies are doing it for them. One thing the gun and accessory companies are finally understanding is that one size doesnt fit all, says Mrs. Dolpp, the leader of the Virginia chapter of The Well Armed Woman. Gun...

    WEDNESDAY, Aug. 17, 2016 (HealthDay News) Taking calcium supplements with the hope of keeping osteoporosis at bay may raise an older woman's risk of dementia, a new study suggests. And that seems particularly true if a woman has already sustained an event causing poor blood flow to the brain (cerebrovascular disease), such as from a stroke, researchers said. The study can't prove cause-and-effect. However, dementia risk was seven times higher in female stroke survivors who took calcium supplements, compared to women with a history of stroke who didn't use the supplements, the findings showed. The risk of dementia also...

This has led Germanys Federal Criminal Police, BKA, to advise German women on how to best protect themselves against rape.

    They are often portrayed as hard-hearted individuals who are putting motherhood on hold in order to climb the career ladder. But women who freeze their eggs are actually waiting for a man who is perfect father material to come along. Researcher Kylie Baldwin, who asked a group of women why they froze their eggs, said: 'I think they were looking for a hands-on father. 'And it was the absence of this particular type of potential father, not just the absence of any partner, that led them to freeze the eggs.

    Here's the key problem with women's studies: They ignore the women most worthy of study. Into this category falls the dear--and she was--departed author and activist Phyllis Schlafly. She crammed more achievements into one lifetime than any trio of the feminists she so implacably opposed crammed into three: a marriage that lasted more than half a century, nine children, 14 grandchildren, advanced degrees, more than a score of books--several of which we have signed copies of in the office, and numerous political victories. I remember when she opposed one of the Left's many Trojan horses--the so-called Equal Rights Amendment. In...

    Conservative icon Phyllis Schlafly passed away on Monday. She was 92. Schlafly, the founder of Eagle Forum, rose to prominence in the 1960s when she wrote the book A Choice, Not an Echo, which sold more than three million copies. She was a leading voice of opposition against the Equal Rights Amendment, fighting to preserve traditional gender roles. She wrote a total of 23 books, the most recent being an expanded edition of A Choice, Not an Echo. In March, Schlafly endorsed Donald Trump for president. Schafly was predeceased by her husband, John, and is survived by her six children.

    Putting females into those positions may give some a warm and fuzzy feeling, but it's a recipe for mission failure and the needless deaths of good men and women. And that's far too high a price to pay to make anyone feel good The highly emotional debate over whether women should be allowed in combat positions in the U.S. military is back. The latest firefight was prompted when the only female officer enrolled in the Marine Corps Infantry Officer Course dropped out after failing to complete two conditioning hikes, according to Corps Training and Education Command.

    One of the most oft-heard claims made by supporters of Hillary Clinton is what a positive role model she would be for young girls as president. They say: "Then, my daughters will know that nothing is to too great for them to aspire to. A woman can indeed be president of the United States." So goes the argument. According to the latest Quinnipiac University poll, women will vote for Clinton by 60 percent to 36 percent, a margin of 24 percent. In the last presidential election, the margin was 10 percent. If the polls are accurate concerning the lopsided female...

    The media has found its latest civil rights cause. Its not the plight of Christians in Muslim countries who are being blocked from coming here as refugees because Obamas refugee policy favors Muslims. Obama brought over 2,000 Syrians here in July. Only 15 of them were Christians. Its not the rising fear of an Islamic terrorist attack in Jewish synagogues. I have lately witnessed unprecedented levels of security at synagogues including guards in body armor and checkpoints. Racist Muslim violence against Jewish synagogues has been a staple of Islamic terrorism for too many years.

But Michelle Martens, according to her own reported account to police, is not that kind of mother.

    Puzzled and upset. Thats 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...

    An Islamic street preacher has been arrested and charged after allegedly screaming abuse at a woman for wearing 'tight jeans' and shouting 'Allahu Akbar' in a police officer's face. Krissoni Henderson appeared to be caught on camera angrily confronting the officer - who was investigating a complaint made against the 31-year-old.

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.

The word historic was on everyones lips as Democrats claimed moral superiority for their support of a woman...

    When Hillary Clinton introduced her running mate to the nation, it was remarkable what topic got the crowd most excited: gun rights. 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...

Was I imagining it, or did I just listen to an interview of a woman who belongs to a group called "Republican women for Hillary"?? This woman who further went on to say something to the effect of "Hillary has the integrity and experience that Trump does not have" and that "the group is growing nationwide among CONSERVATIVE Republican women" I was like WHAT?? WHAT?? I almost rear ended the car in front of me from...
