    Hillary Clinton hoped to wear white on election night, a tribute to the suffragettes and the sweep of political history. Instead, as she wrote in her new book, the white suit stayed in her garment bag as she donned the gray and purple garment she had intended for her first trip to Washington as president-elect. Given the opportunity to make history by electing the first female president, women didn’t take it. And ironically, the women who bore the most resemblance to Clinton – white, heterosexual and married – were less likely to vote for her. Many had expected Clinton to...
  • Clinton: Some women 'disrespected themselves' at Trump campaign rallies

    The Hill ^ | September 23, 2017 | Julia Manchester
    Hillary Clinton said Saturday that some women are "publicly disrespecting themselves" in their support of President Trump. "When I see women doing that, I think why are they publicly disrespecting themselves? Why are they opening the door to have someone say that about them in their workplace? In a community setting? Do they not see the connection there?" Clinton told MSNBC's Joy Reid on "AM Joy." Clinton made the comments when asked about pro-Trump women who wear profane t-shirts "that used the b-word, the c-word about you." "And I think that's one of the problems with sexism. We had such...

    Spend a little time with single women in their early to mid-30s, and you'll be grateful you're not one of them. The relationship scene is even more dismal today than when I was their age. All the women want serious relationships that lead to marriage, but many of the men they meet do not. All too often a woman moves in with some guy, hoping they're on the road to somewhere. Two years later, he tells her he's not ready for marriage and kids just yet. Splat.But wait. Hasn't online dating made the mating market easier? Yes – for men....
  • Faith-based pregnancy clinics: Hawaii law forces them to promote abortion

    HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Pro-life pregnancy centers went to court Friday to try to overturn a new law that they argue requires them to publicly post abortion referrals. During a hearing before U.S. District Judge Derrick Watson, attorneys for Calvary Chapel Pearl Harbor and the Aloha Pregnancy Care and Counseling Center argued that the law violates their right to free speech and religion because it forces them to post signs that interfere with their faith. "It compels even non-medical pregnancy centers to recite what amounts to a government-scripted advertisement for abortion," said Kevin Connelly, Calvary's attorney. "It forces a church, Calvary...

    Of all the leaders in the anti-Trump Women’s March earlier this year, Linda Sarsour’s name has stood out the most. After all, she’s been the subject of much media attention — most of it hardly positive, and for good reason. One need only go through her social media history to see that she supports Sharia Law, even calling for anti-Islam apologists Ayaan Hirsi Ali and Brigette Ganriel to have their vaginas taken out (Ali was the victim of female genital mutilation as a child), and praising cop killers. She’s also public about her friendship with Imam Siraj Wahhaj, whom she describes as her...

    A recent article in the Chicago Tribune detailed the experiences of a black woman who obtained a concealed carry permit in Chicago. The article is surprisingly positive about her experiences. An important point is that minority women make up a significant percentage of the growth in concealed carry permits nationwide. From chicagotribune.com: Robinzine, 51, is a gun owner with a concealed carry license. Since she received her permit in late spring, she carries her firearm wherever she goes. “It's like a part of me now,” Robinzine said with the smile.Data show Robinzine is part of a burgeoning group in...

    Hillary Clinton failed to become America’s first female president last November when she was beaten by Donald Trump. But which women could win in 2020? 1. Elizabeth Warren The current favourite to become America’s first female president is the progressive Democratic senator from Massachusetts, Elizabeth Warren. Warren was first elected to the senate in 2012, and is up for re-election in 2018. Plenty of outlets have speculated that Warren could be preparing a 2020 presidential bid, including earlier this year in the Observer. After Donald Trump and Mike Pence, Warren is the third favourite American to become president in 2020,...

    For a show that prides itself on being a feminist wonderland, ABC’s “The View” insulted a lot of women last week. During Friday’s broadcast of the daytime talk show, host Whoopi Goldberg spoke about an interview Hillary Clinton did with NPR where she said that Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg told her that there would be women who would vote against her because of pressure from their husbands. “I think there is a point to that. It’s not just that women hate other women,” co-host Joy Behar mused. “I think that women vote in their interest, economic interest, just like the...

    One of the more bizarre revelations in Hillary Clinton's campaign autopsy book—What Happened—was her admission that she tried Voodoo, "but it didn't work. I had dolls of all the key players—Trump, Bannon, Limbaugh. I stuck them with pins like you're supposed to, but none of them even got sick, much less died." The former presidential candidate speculated that "some sort of Russian radiation or hypersonic interference may have short-circuited the effectiveness of this time-tested technique. I mean, it's not like I haven't successfully used this tool before. We made a lot of problems disappear when Bill was governor of Arkansas...

    The Washington Examiner ^ | September 15, 2017 | Becket Adams
    Hillary Clinton has expanded on her earlier claim that sexism helped torpedo her 2016 campaign, stating more specifically this week that white women were scared off by their husbands, brothers, boyfriends and male employers. "When women are serving on behalf of someone else, as I was when I was Secretary of State, for example, they are seen favorably," the twice-failed presidential candidate said this week in an interview with NPR. She added, "But when they step into the arena and say, 'Wait a minute, I think I could do the job, I would like to have that opportunity,' their favorabilities...

    If we get straight to the point and skip the BS that’s only used to soften the blow of painful facts, we can admit it’s hard to find a good man. Even if we take our standards, expectations, and delusional hopes off the table and really look at the situation for what it is, we can clearly see that we are not to blame for the lack of good men. No, we have society who can take the blame for this one. Unfortunately, our culture has evolved in a way that has made finding a good man tough ― and...

    For years the number of stay-at-home dads has been rising, as more men take on responsibility for looking after the home and family.  But now the trend appears to be reversing, with the number falling sharply to a three-year low - and experts say the novelty of being a "new man" could be wearing off.

    Clinton made the excuse during an interview with NPR’s Rachel Martin during a promotional tour of her book, “What Happened.” In the interview, Clinton was asked why, given that she was the first female presidential candidate, she fared worse than expected among female voters. In typical Clinton fashion, she deflected the blame, suggesting that women who voted against her were somehow manipulated by men in their lives. She also claimed that “sexism” from supporters of Bernie Sanders might have played a part in her poor showing among female voters.

    Hillary Clinton, in her campaign post-mortem released Tuesday, tore into women who didn't vote for her failed presidential candidacy in November and regretted it, saying "these people were looking for absolution that I just couldn't give." Clinton's book, What Happened, is an angry account of how she lost to President Trump in November. Among the multitude of people/countries/events she blames for her defeat are young women who didn't vote for her.

    Mid-February is the most frigid time of year, so it’s always seemed apt that that this is when they choose to hold the highest holy day of the cult of coupledom. If you’re reading this, there’s a not insignificant chance that you are one or several of the following: a) young b) female c) single or d) nauseated by the sheer volume of saccharine romantic propaganda sloshing around the public sphere at this particular time of year. But none of us live outside culture, and feeling frustrated on Valentine’s Day doesn’t make you stupid or duped or a mindless drone...

    An Arizona State University professor was distressed to discover in a recent study that her female peers do not desire "the stigma of extreme weight gain.” Professor Breanne Fahs, a self-described “fat woman,” recently published an article in the Women’s Studies International Forum in which she declared that “the fear of fatness is far more extreme, exaggerated, and terrible than the lived realities of living in a fat body.”
