    Saudi Arabia-based fashion authority Marriam Mossalli discusses the popularity of vintage abayas, Melania Trump and the Dior "Feminist" T-shirt.

    wordpress ^ | May 9, 2015 | Dan from Squirrel Hill Bernie Sanders’ war on women Bernie Sanders wants Nike to stop doing business in Vietnam. He recently accused Nike of “exploiting low-wage workers” in Vietnam. Unfortunately, Sanders did not actually talk to any of those Vietnamese workers to get their opinion on this issue. Fortunately, a guy named Johan Norberg did talk to Vietnamese workers who work in a Nike factory. He then wrote the following: "But when I talk to a young Vietnamese woman, Tsi-Chi, at the factory, it is not the wages she is most happy about. Sure, she makes five times more than she did, she...

    Hell hath no fury like a woman who won the popular vote yet lost the biggest prize of all: a historic presidency The Democratic 2016 presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton, has been making some rounds, at June graduations, women's global forums and some such. She makes jokes about walking in the woods and wishing she had flown from the White House. A growing chorus of opinion has sprung up saying she should go gentle into that good night, coming from corners like Vanity Fair and USA Today. On the contrary. Let's hear from Clinton every day, every move, every outrageous statement...

    Michelle Obama looked out into an audience packed with mostly male tech workers and asked them to make room for women in technology. Obama was a guest speaker at WWDC, Apple's annual developer conference, on Tuesday. She was introduced by Tim Cook himself before sitting down with Lisa Jackson, the former head of the EPA who now heads up social and environmental initiatives for Apple. Their hour-long discussion touched on Obama's post-White House life, diversity in tech and not falling down the stairs of Air Force One. Apple did not allow press into the event, but CNN Tech spoke to...

    The latest Hamptons summer accessory? A vasectomy. When Scott, a male model who says he’s in his 30s, kicks off the Hamptons high season this weekend at his Sag Harbor waterfront house, the unattached hunk won’t have any reservations about hooking up with women he hardly knows. “I had a vasectomy a few months ago. Having a house in the Hamptons and being fairly well-off, I’ve encountered some problems — women try to get pregnant,” said Scott, a regular on the society scene who earns a cool half-million a year. He recalled sex partners who have lied to him about...

    The media’s obsession with the white populist narrative serves two purposes: telling women who supported Hillary they don’t matter and exonerating itself from being culpable in her loss. Last Friday, Hillary Clinton delivered the commencement speech at her alma mater, Wellesley, to a rapt audience of young women, just as Rebecca Traister’s New York magazine cover story went live online, vaulting the former presidential candidate back into the news. And with Clinton’s interview at Recode’s Code2017 yesterday where she addressed the myriad reasons for her loss, so came the return of trolls and the tiresome exegesis that demands a single...

    The long-awaited “Wonder Woman” has generated more buzz than any movie this year, and rightly so. She’s the most beloved and iconic female superhero ever, yet it’s taken decades — the film’s been in development since 1996 — for a Wonder Woman movie. It’s the first to pair a female director with a big-budget, comic-book film meant to be a franchise. In Gal Gadot, it has a star who served in the Israeli army and brings authority to her fight scenes. “She is the ultimate symbol of strength,” Gadot said in 2015. “Never in my wildest dreams did I think...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi acknowledged at a recent discussion panel that she finds it difficult to refer to the president of the United States by name. The California Democrat said "It's hard," even after five months, to say "President Trump," according to the Hill. The question came up in the discussion after Pelosi made a reference to Trump by stating "the new president of the United States." The former House Speaker went on to explain why Hillary Clinton's election loss had been so tough to bear. "I'm the highest ranking woman politically in our country," added Pelosi, the Hill...

    It happened again last week. Two Turkish nationals in Schwerin, Germany were arrested for raping a 13-year-old girl after forcing themselves into her home.Recently, a judge in Germany acquitted a Turkish drug dealer of raping one of his customers last August.

He told the judge that in the culture from where he came, what she "had experienced as rape" might be considered merely "wild sex."What "culture" is this?According to the Turkish women's rights organization "We Will Stop the Murders of Women," which publishes monthly reports,...

    President Trump’s first foreign trip has brought a big benefit to his daughter's pet project. As Trump traveled the Middle East, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates pledged $100 million to a fund for women entrepreneurs proposed by Ivanka Trump, according to a report. The Wall Street Journal reported Saudi Arabia and the U.A.E. would donate to the Women Entrepreneurs Fund, a program Ivanka Trump pitched to World Bank Group President Jim Yong Kim and has discussed with several world leaders. The fund’s money will be controlled by World Bank, not Ivanka, but she continues fundraising for it even...
