  • Obama takes questions only from female reporters

    The Washington Examiner ^ | December 18, 2014 | Ashe Schow
    During President Obama’s year-end press conference Friday, he took eight questions — all from women. .......Considering what turned out to be a poor ending for the year in women’s issues — namely campus sexual assault — Obama needed to bring attention back on women. Obama tried in April to spearhead a movement this year and continue the momentum of the “war on women” narrative, but it suffered a number of setbacks: Due process supporters piped up, a major story about campus rape was exposed as a hoax, Republicans defeated candidates who overdid the "war on women" theme. To put it...

    The owners of the Miss World pageant have announced that there will be no swimsuit round in next year's competition. In an interview with Elle, chairwoman Julia Morley explained: 'I really... don't need to see women just walking up and down in bikinis. It doesn't do anything for the woman. And it doesn't do anything for any of us.' She added: 'I don't care if someone has a bottom two inches bigger than someone else's. We are really not looking at her bottom. We are really listening to her speak.'

    Iraq’s Ministry of Human Rights claims the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) murdered 150 women simply because they refused to marry or perform sexual acts with the terrorists. “At least 150 females, including pregnant women, were executed in Fallujah by a militant named Abu Anas Al-Libi after they refused to accept jihad marriage,” said the Ministry. “Many families were also forced to migrate from the province’s northern town of Al-Wafa after hundreds of residents received death threats.”

In fact, check out this photo of Clinton in a diner respectfully discussing economic justice with a group of nuns. Oh, wait. Sorry, Joe, that’s you again. Well, what is Bill Clinton up to?

    The Church of England has named its first female bishop, just four weeks after elevating women to the role was approved. Rev Libby Lane, who has spent much of her career working in the North East has been announced the new Bishop of Stockport, an assistant in the Chester Diocese. The historic move comes a month after the General Synod in York approved legislation to elevate women to the position and 20 years after the first women were ordained as priests.

    RIYADH, Saudi Arabia – A Saudi woman arrested while attending a soccer game in the kingdom claims she did not know women were prohibited from going to the male-only stadiums, the state-linked Okaz newspaper reported on Monday. Saudi Arabia enforces a strict segregation of the sexes and has no designated areas for women at soccer stadiums ... Police spokesman Atti al-Qurashi said security spotted her at the stadium "deliberately disguised" in male attire to avoid detection, reported the state-linked news website Twasul. Okaz reported Sunday that police questioned the woman, who is in her twenties, for "impersonating" a man by...

    The problem with a victim culture is that so many people want to join the ranks of victimhood that eventually you run short of oppressors. As I say in my new book (personally autographed copies of which make a Christmas gift your loved one will cherish forever), Elizabeth Warren is the whitest white since Frosty the Snowman fell in a vat of Wite-Out, but a dubious claim to be one 32nd Cherokee was enough to persuade Harvard Law School to promote her as their first "woman of color".

    NEW YORK — The highest-ranking Hispanic woman in a management position at Major League Baseball headquarters said in a lawsuit on Thursday she has faced discrimination there for two decades. Sylvia Lind’s lawsuit, filed in Manhattan federal court, seeks unspecified damages for what she describes as a failure by the league to consider, interview, appoint and promote qualified Hispanic women to managerial and executive positions. Lind, 48, says the league has created a hostile work environment for her because of her age.

    The U.S. Army’s plan to conduct an integrated Ranger School assessment in 2015 is looking good — interest is so high that the number of female volunteers must be cut to 160 candidates. All women selected by their commands and units will take part in the two-week Army National Guard Ranger Training and Assessment Course. Those who successfully complete the pre-Ranger course at Fort Benning, Georgia, will then move on to Ranger School, which is held 11 times a year.

    A woman in Muzaffargarh allegedly managed to fight off five men who were attempting to rape her, only to be intercepted and attacked with acid as she made her way back to her house. The incident took place in a rural area of Qureshi Chowk in Muzaffargarh on Friday. Arfa*, 30, a mother-of-five, worked as daily wage labourers in Aliwaala fields along with her husband. The victim was reportedly asked to provide illicit services by five men belonging to a local feudal family but had refused to oblige. Her husband advised her to leave the local field, after which she...

    Pope Francis today addressed the International Theological Commission at the conclusion of its first plenary session. Traditionally held in the first week of Advent, the meeting of the ITC's new five-year term selects the three themes the Commission will consider over coming years. Thirty members are appointed to the International Theological Commission by the Supreme Pontiff for a term of five years, after which they may be reappointed. The Commission is attached to the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. In two previous terms, members of the Commission included two female theolgians: Sister Sara Butler, M.S.B.T., (U.S.A.), and Professor...

    An Irvington employee contends in a lawsuit that Township Mayor Tony Vauss forced her to have sex with him last June in a municipal office. The employee claims she told Vauss “no” twice, but he wedged her against a desk and performed the sex act, according to a lawsuit she filed last month against Vauss and the township. She alleges the sex act was part of an ongoing pattern of “sexual harassment” by Vauss, the lawsuit states. She claims the harassment occurred before and after Vauss was elected mayor in May.

    Rupert Murdoch took to Twitter tonight to defend 20th Century Fox's new movie "Exodus" that casts Christian Bale as Moses, and a variety of white actors as Egyptians. There’s been scuffle on Twitter ever since Murdoch made his observations. And a lot of this stems from a quote director Ridley Scott gave Variety about why he didn’t use Egyptian or Arab actors for the film. He said: "I can’t mount a film of this budget, where I have to rely on tax rebates in Spain, and say that my lead actor is Mohammad so-and-so from such-and-such," Scott says. "I'm just...

    In case you were looking for an actual “war on women” as opposed to some fictional hysteria constructed for the entertainment of daytime cable news soap operas, you might want to take a look at Turkey. The new president of our “ally” in the region near Syria, Tayyip Erdogan, decided to opine on the subject of gender relations this week and he really wasn’t worried about mincing words. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has said women cannot be treated as equal to men, and has accused feminists of rejecting motherhood. “You cannot put women and men on an equal footing,”...

    If Aesop were here he might rewrite his famous fable, replacing the boy who cried “wolf!” with the girl who cried “rape!” The cry of “rape” is used so carelessly that it’s often impossible to get to the truth of an accusation. When rape was a capital offense it was a rare and vicious crime which required a court of law to apply justice. It was underreported, since the rapist usually took advantage of those who felt too vulnerable even to say anything about it. Contemporary accusations of rape are frequent, often made by women at prestigious colleges whose accusations...

    A meeting of House Democrats flared up on Tuesday over the increasingly thorny issue of whether a pregnant member should be allowed to vote from afar in the party's leadership elections this week. Democratic leaders, including Rep. Nancy Pelosi (Calif.), have denied a request from Rep. Tammy Duckworth (Ill.), who lost both of her legs in the Iraq War, to waive the Democratic rule barring proxy votes. Duckworth, 46, is in the last stages of a pregnancy and her doctor won't allow her to travel back to Washington to vote in person. The denial has angered a number of Democrats,...

The Maneuver Center of Excellence in Fort Benning, Georgia, said on its Facebook page Monday that Fort Benning’s Airborne and Ranger Training Brigade has chosen 11 officers and 20 noncommissioned officers as observers and advisers for the course. Candidates went through a week of training to give them an idea of the rigors that Ranger School inflicts upon soldiers. “I was very satisfied with both the quality and quantity of the volunteers we received,” said Maj.

    The Democratic dream of “turning Texas blue” dissolved on Nov. 4. The left had elevated Wendy Davis, an obscure state senator, to superstar status after she delivered an emotional 11-hour panegyric to abortion. She was expected to ride her celebrity status and the “war on women” into the executive mansion in Austin. She had only to defeat a Republican white man. It didn’t quite work out that way, drawing just 38.9 percent of the vote. From the top of the ballot on down, the wreckage from the Democratic effort was strewn across the state from Texarkana westward to El Paso....

    It sounds like a radical idea: Stop incarcerating women, and close down women’s prisons. But in Britain, there is a growing movement, sponsored by a peer in the House of Lords, to do just that. The argument is actually quite straightforward: There are far fewer women in prison than men to start with — women make up just 7 percent of the prison population. This means that these women are disproportionately affected by a system designed for men. But could women’s prisons actually be eliminated in the United States, where the rate of women’s incarceration has risen by 646 percent...

Companies are cashing in on growing demand from women seeking the more curvaceous figures of their favorite stars, who flaunt their fuller rear ends.

    Whether liberals would like to admit it or not; 2014 was a historic moment for women, especially Republican women. Besides it being a wave election, Republicans elected the first female senators from Iowa and West Virginia, the youngest woman ever elected to Congress, and the first black Republican woman–Mia Love–in Utah. Yet, these were Republican women; they’re a horrid subset of the human species beholden to their patriarchal masters according to feminists. Well, it all comes down to abortion–again–and this super-secret conspiracy to make life for American women–and women around the world–miserable (via the Guardian) [emphasis mine]: In a way, female...

It wasn’t immediately clear why the restrictions would be different Thursday and Friday ...

I’m not sure I agree. If you are against everything Joni Ernst or Mia Love stand for, then...

    Stung by the Democrats who abandoned him during Campaign 2014 by telling voters that President Obama wasn’t on the ballot, the president insisted that his policies were and that those Democrats voted consistently for his policies. At that point, I’m sure, those senators and representatives cringed, but voters recognized the truth of what the president said and voted a resounding repudiation of both the president and his policies. That said, a burning question remains: “What about those unmarried women who put him in office in 2008 and kept him there in 2012?” My assessment of the CNN exit poll data...

The magazine rooted against a fifth of them – or at least ignored them. The fashion magazine for some reason decided to jump into politics this year and endorse candidates for the 2014 midterm elections. Surprise, surprise, all of the politicians they endorsed were pro-abortion Democrats. Here were just a few: Amanda Renteria, Jeanne Shaheen, Alison Lundergan Grimes, Mary Burke, Carol Shea-Porter, Michelle Nunn, Staci Appel, and everyone’s favorite candidate, Wendy Davis. In the House races, specifically, conservative, pro-life...

    I am well aware that Wendy Davis lost the Texas governor’s race by a wide margin. It’s salt in a very personal wound. Her campaign meant a lot to me, and to so many other Texas women — thousands of whom stood in line for hours to cast their ballots in support. Greg Abbott won anyway, and he won by a lot. But he didn’t win by a lot across the demographic landscape. I went to the Texas Tribune first for a dissection of the election results, and one piece of information struck me as particularly… wrong. The Tribune cited...

    As things started to look really bad for Democrats in the waning days of the midterm election, we started to hear complaints that Democratic candidates had focused too much of their effort on flogging the idea of a Republican “war on women.” Colorado’s Mark Udall returned to this theme so often that he was dubbed “Mark Uterus,” and you can see where that got him: he lost by a five-point margin. And that’s not the worst of it. No one built their campaign around the “women’s issue” of abortion rights more fully than Wendy Davis in Texas. She went down...

    Jessica Valenti is not happy about the Republican wave election that happened on Tuesday. In fact, she is angry. More than that, she is angry that Republican women have been elected to positions of power because, she writes, Republicans are oppressing women and taking power away from them. Valenti warns, “Record numbers don’t matter if the party is still targeting women’s rights – and if elected women are still throwing their own gender under the bus.” The Republican party, including women who are Republicans, are “anti-woman.” Valenti makes a point to say that the GOP isn’t anti-women’s issues.

    The abortion lobby glommed on to Wendy Davis as soon as she conducted her now-infamous 11-hour filibuster. Davis was doing everything she could to make sure that late-term abortion became legal, and abortion activists were thrilled. It seemed inevitable that she would run for higher office after that. Pro-abortion groups like Battleground Texas swore that Davis was just the person to turn Texas blue and make it a pro-abortion haven like New York or California. Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood, has thrown her weight behind Davis as well, bussing in supporters and funneling money into the Davis campaign. Unfortunately...

Gun control renders women vulnerable to rape and mass violence Women are at higher risk than men for becoming victims of rape. And since 75% of teachers are female, according to data from the Education Department, women are also at higher risk for becoming victims of mass school shootings. Democrats like Sen. Dianne Feinstein, California Gov. Jerry Brown (signatory of a new bill that tells women: “a nod means undress me”) and President Obama are...

    Boko Haram is a radical Islamic wanna-be ruling force in Nigeria who kidnapped nearly 300 school girls in one fell swoop in April of this year. Michelle Obama was outraged. EightyU.S. military troops flew in, vowing to never leave until the girls are found. The Nigerian government agreed to a ceasefire against the captors, claiming the group is preparing to release the girls—who they openly call “sex slaves” and threaten to sell in the market. Yet, hundreds more girls and women have been kidnapped since April by the same wanna-bes, including 60 immediately after the ceasefire proclamation and 30 more...

    Archaeology shows that these fierce women also smoked pot, got tattoos, killed—and loved—men. The Amazons got a bum rap in antiquity. They wore trousers. They smoked pot, covered their skin with tattoos, rode horses, and fought as hard as the guys. Legends sprang up like weeds. They cut off their breasts to fire their bows better! They mutilated or killed their boy children! Modern (mostly male) scholars continued the confabulations. The Amazons were hard-core feminists. Man haters. Delinquent mothers. Lesbians. Drawing on a wealth of textual, artistic, and archaeological evidence, Adrienne Mayor, author of The Amazons, dispels these myths and...

    The nation is fed up with the phony "war on women" that Democrats are endlessly accusing Republicans of waging, says Carly Fiorina, former CEO of Hewlett-Packard. "We have a lot of data which suggests that people are tiring of the slogans and the gestures. Women, as well as men," Fiorina saud Wednesday on "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

    <p>On Tuesday, Slate and everyone else posted a video of a woman who is harassed more than 100 times by men as she walks around New York City for ten hours. More specifically, it’s a video of a young white woman who is harassed by mostly black and Latino men as she walks around New York City for ten hours. The one dude who turns around and says, “Nice,” is white, but the guys who do the most egregious things—like the one who harangues her, “Somebody’s acknowledging you for being beautiful! You should say thank you more,” or the one who follows her down the street too closely for five whole minutes—are not.</p>

    Just weeks after three women passed a rigorous day-long test qualifying them to potentially lead US Marine infantrymen for the first time in history, news came that all three women have been asked to leave the course. They were physically disqualified from the training last week for falling behind in hikes while carrying loads of upwards of 100 pounds, says Maj. George Flynn, director of the Infantry Officers Course (IOC) at Quantico, Va.

    I was sitting on a bean bag in my dorm room when I got the call. It was a friend of mine — let’s call her “Sara” — and she was sobbing so hard it took me a moment to know who it was. Finally, she pulled herself together enough to speak. With a voice that sounded as weary as if she had aged 100 years since the last time we talked, she said, “I’m pregnant.” My heart sunk on her behalf. I was completely pro-choice and didn’t find the idea of abortion to be troubling, but I knew that...

    Apparently, the usual sober and fraught political commentary that often accompanies episodes of physical violence directed toward women disappears when the subject of that violence is a Palin. The political press had a hearty chuckle at the expense of the Palins when it first broke that the former first family of Alaska was involved in an alcohol-fueled brawl. The “thrilla in Wasilla,” some called it. One might, however, have expected the laughter to die down after local police released audio of Bristol Palin who described through hysterical tears how she had been assaulted, dragged through the grass, and robbed. It...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren says she's been treated differently in elected office because she's a woman. While campaigning for Democratic Sen. Mark Udall in Colorado, the Massachusetts Democrat answered with a resounding “yes” when asked on CNN if male senators have treated her differently because of her gender. When asked to elaborate, Warren replied “Nope” twice, but did oblige that she didn't find her treatment surprising.
