    Here's a sobering little fact for you: We are more than 60 days, two Muslim bans, and one Kellyanne Conway "commercial" into the Trump administration, and we still have no idea what Ivanka Trump's job is. She is not, she says, the first lady of the United States; "there's one first lady, and Melania will be an unbelievable first lady," she told ABC News. She is not actively running her eponymous lifestyle and jewelry brands, nor is she working for the Trump Organization, having taken a "formal leave of absence" in January. Finally¬óand perhaps most importantly¬óshe is not a formal...

    Trend analysts have dubbed what they interpret as a new wave of feminism the "pluri-empowerment" factor, says Iza Dezon, a trend forecaster at Peclers Paris. "An empowered woman is no longer subject to a specific definition, nor must she live by a specific set of values," she explains. "We're seeing the opening up of what empowerment means, allowing women to create their own definitions." The modest movement has been gaining steam for a few years now and the hijab has become a recognized symbol. In 2014 DKNY launched a bespoke modest fashion collection. In 2016, Dolce & Gabbana released a...

Since then, Trumpís executive order that temporarily banned travel to the U.S. for people from seven predominately Muslim nations inspired mass protests...

    When Anne Kirkpatrick took the helm at the scandal-ridden Oakland Police Department, she inherited an agency that the cityís mayor likened to a frat house. The veteran police officer knew she inevitably would be asked what itís like to combat the culture as one of a growing number of women heading police departments, many struggling to repair their public image. [Ö] Female police officers tend to use wits over brawn to deescalate potentially violent situations, experts say, and as departments shift their focus to nonviolent techniques, itís natural they would tap more women as leaders.

    Muslim activist Linda Sarsour was one of four main organizers of the successful Womenís March on Washington. Sheís received negative press in the past, but now that her profileís raised sheís under heavier scrutiny for her alleged ties to terrorism, affinity for Sharia law, and past statements. Her defenders claim the recent attacks on Sarsour are designed to discredit the march or an expression of Islamophobia. Her detractors feel sheís an Islamist whoís trying to hijack a womenís movement that Donald Trumpís misogyny has helped revitalize. The question now: Is Sarsour viciously and unfairly targeted because sheís a Muslim, as...

    Misogyny has been a hot topic in 2017. According to a new report from Axios, nowhere is this more evident than in the office President Donald Trump. President Trump has allegedly enforced a dress code upon female members of staff in the White House, insisting that they need to Ďdress like womení. A source, who worked on Trumpís campaign, also stated that the President places an exacting emphasis on appearance of his staff and insists that they Ďlook the partí. The source also suggested that most women feel pressure to wear dresses in order to impress him and commented that...

    "Are so many women so shallow?" They came, they howled, they carried signs and wore stupid 'pussyhats' and they accomplished nothing, nada, zilch other than street theater" A day or two before the inauguration of President Donald J. Trump on January 20th, 2017, I watched a reporter interviewing five attractive, intelligent, articulate women from California, who were all making the long cross-country trip to the Womenís March on Washington on January 21st.

    Profanity-laced screeching by entertainment luminaries, such as Ashley Judd's complaints about how unfair menstruation is to women and Madonna's musing about blowing up the White House, grabbed some headlines this week. However, it may be more disturbing that the march's organizer Linda Sarsour's long-term goal is to bring sharia law to America. "The benefits of sharia law don't get a fair airing in America," Sarsour complained. "A narrow-minded focus on the beatings for disobeying a husband, father, or brother overlooks more important advantages like interest-free loans. What are a few welts and bruises compared to saving thousands of dollars on...

    At the time of the Roe v. Wade decision, I was a college student ó an anti-war, mother-earth, feminist, hippie college student. That particular January I was taking a semester off, living in the D.C. area and volunteering at the feminist ďunderground newspaperĒ Off Our Backs. As youíd guess, I was strongly in favor of legalizing abortion. The bumper sticker on my car read, ďDonít labor under a misconception; legalize abortion.Ē The first issue of Off Our Backs after the Roe decision included one of my movie reviews, and also an essay by another member of the collective criticizing the...
