  • Military Changing Body Armor to Accommodate Women’s Hairstyles

    As women enter ground combat fields in larger numbers, the military services are working harder to make gender-specific accommodations for their gear — even down to tweaking protective equipment to fit around longer hair. According to presentations prepared by the Army and the Marine Corps for the Pentagon’s Defense Advisory Committee on Women in the Services, both services are making independent changes to ensure gear fits correctly for women with hair buns. A presentation prepared by Army Lt. Col. Ginger L. Whitehead, product manager for Soldier Protective Equipment, shows a recently introduced version of the Female Improved Outer Tactical Vest,...
  • Women Against Free Speech?

    Sometimes, for those of us who are constantly reading statistics and poll results, something that you didn't expect to see stands out -- a number that makes you think the future will not be what you have been expecting. My latest sighting of such a number was in a March 12 New York Times report on a poll of college students sponsored by the American Council on Education, the Charles Koch Foundation and the Stanton Foundation. It asked students about free speech on campus -- whether it is allowed and whether it should be. College and university campuses have been...
  • Lawmaker Wants ‘General Hooker’ Sign Removed From State House (Mass.)

    BOSTON (CBS) – A Massachusetts lawmaker wants the “General Hooker Entrance” sign removed from the State House because she calls it a double entendre “misrepresented as respect for a long-dead general.” Michelle DuBois – a state representative from Brockton, West Bridgewater, and East Bridgewater – tweeted a picture of the sign on Wednesday, saying “#MeToo it’s not all about rape & harassment but also women’s dignity
  • Diversity Fail? All-Women Engineering Team Blamed for Collapse of Miami Pedestrian Bridge

    03/18/2018 6:12:54 PM PDT · by reaganaut1 · 177 replies ^ | March 18, 2018 | Sandra Rose
    The all-women engineering team that designed the ill-fated pedestrian foot bridge at Miami’s Florida International University were highly touted for their advances in a field that is typically dominated by men. But critics are pointing the finger of blame at the female engineers for design flaws that may have brought the bridge down. Investigators are still on the scene of last week’s bridge collapse that killed 6 people and injured 9 on the FIU campus in Southwest Miami. The investigation is focusing on the work done by a team of all-women engineers who were employed by one of the construction...

    Trump’s CIA Pick is the Great Feminist Moment the Left Hates Does real feminism look like Linda Sarsour, Hillary Clinton or the first female CIA head? March 16, 2018 Daniel Greenfield Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is an investigative journalist and writer focusing on the radical left and Islamic terrorism. “2018 will be the year of women,” CNN declared last year. What was the greatest achievement of women in ’17 and ’18? Ask the media and they’ll tell you that it’s Hillary Clinton running on her husband’s name and losing an election before blaming it...
  • It’s Not Hillary’s Sprained Hand That’s The Problem, It’s Her Incurable Brain Sprain

    In spite of her claims to the contrary, Hillary isn’t the Last Feminist Standing but could be the one that keeps falling It’s not the sprained hand Hillary Clinton sustained during her visit to India that should be of most concern, but her Mainstream Media-ignored, ongoing ‘brain sprain’. Only someone who is seriously brain sprained would claim that almost 52% of white women voted for Donald Trump because they were afraid to stand up to their husbands, sons and bosses who wanted them to cast their votes for the protege of former President Barack Hussein Obama.

    Vice ^ | March 8, 2018 | Dani Beckett
    Every year, I wake up on March 8 to a flurry of tweets from men wishing me a “Happy International Women’s Day!” And every year, I find myself thinking: Well, thanks, but is that it? Is that all the support for gender equality that you can muster? For the entire year? It’s a nice sentiment, but at a time when the gender pay gap means that women in the UK work for free for 67 days each year, Black women in the US are three to four times more likely to die in childbirth than white women, and trans women...

  • Clinton: White Women Voted for Trump Because Their Husbands Told Them To

    Hillary Clinton said that white women voted for President Trump during the 2016 presidential election because their husbands told them to, during a discussion at the India Today Conclave on Saturday. The moderator asked Clinton why she thinks almost 52 percent of white women voted for Trump, despite them knowing about the controversial “Access Hollywood” tape. “[Democrats] do not do well with white men and we don’t do well with married, white women,” Clinton explained. “And part of that is an identification with the Republican Party, and a sort of ongoing pressure to vote the way that your husband, your...

    As a female and a Republican – yes, shock and awe, there are women Republicans in Montgomery County – I cannot stop laughing at the recent decision by the Maryland Democrat Party to adopt separate but equal elections for their central committee members. Half of their central committee members must be female and the other half male, but that is not new. What is new is that during this year’s June 26 primary for 17 counties, each voter will HAVE to Vote for one or more MALES on the Male ballot and one or more FEMALES on the Female part...

    Thousands of women, many with small children to take care of, were jailed in Turkey in an unprecedented crackdown and subjected to torture and ill-treatment in detention centers and prisons as part of the government’s systematic campaign of intimidation and persecution of critics and opponents, a new report titled “Jailing Women In Turkey: Systematic Campaign of Persecution and Fear” released by Stockholm Center for Freedom (SCF) has revealed.The motivation behind Turkey’s deliberate policy of imprisoning women who, in some cases, have just delivered babies or are pregnant, appears to be creating a chill factor in Turkish society and muzzle dissenting and...

    In recent years, society has focused more on issues affecting girls and women than on those related to boys and men. But now, in all 63 of the largest developed nations, boys are falling behind girls in all academic subjects – especially the biggest predictors of success, reading and writing, in their mental health (depression, suicides), physical health (lower sperm counts), IQ, ability to create friends, and so on.Dr. Warren Farrell, who has written extensively on men and family, just released a book with co-author John Gray, the bestselling author of Men are From Mars, Women are From Venus. The Boy...

    A group of female activists in Oaxaca, Mexico, held a mass marriage ceremony where they each wed their own splintery groom to draw attention to illegal logging – a serious and devastating problem in the country. Around a third of Mexico’s land is covered by forest. Oaxaca is one of five states hit hardest by deforestation, mostly caused by criminal groups, Metro reports. The women are trying to take a stand against the practice and are hoping the mass marriage will get people more involved with saving the woodlands.|
  • Women in Cryptocurrencies Push Back Against ‘Blockchain Bros’

    When a cryptocurrency start-up that promised to revolutionize the fruit and vegetable industry shut down last month, it left behind one word on its website: penis. When a virtual currency company called DateCoin recently tried to entice investors for its initial coin offering, it posted a Facebook ad that featured a reclining woman in a swimsuit with text over her body that read, “Touch my I.C.O.” And after the North American Bitcoin Conference in January, which highlighted 84 male speakers and three women, the official conference party was held at a Miami strip club. Virtual currencies and blockchain, the digital...

    A little over a year ago thousands of women marched in the streets of Asbury Park as part of the National Women’s March. On February 24 close to 700 women (along with some men) came back to Asbury Park to be part of the first Asbury Park Women’s Convention. The idea for the nonpartisan convention stemmed from a conversation between Asbury Deputy Mayor Amy Quinn and comedian/activist Jess Alaimo over drinks at the local bar Johnny Mac’s.

    The Marine Corps is on the defensive for a second time this month over changes to its famous Infantry Officer Course (IOC). Military communities were abuzz in early February when officials confirmed that successfully completing the Combat Endurance Test (CET) — the rigorous first stage of IOC — would no longer be a requirement for passing the 13-week course. The Corps answered criticism on Feb. 7, but found itself in the same position this week as new standards for IOC’s training hikes were revealed. The course previously required a Marine to complete nine hikes, of which six would be evaluated...
