    Every woman in Saudi Arabia, regardless of age, has a legal male guardian, often a father or brother or son. Guardians have the power to make a range of critical decisions on a woman's behalf. Women need to get their permission to travel abroad, marry and sometimes to work or access health care. ... The guardianship system is "the most significant impediment to realizing women's rights in the country. ... Throughout the summer Saudi women began tweeting, detailing the injustices of the guardianship system -- risking the wrath of their guardians and the government in doing so. They got noticed....

    Bay State women say they are headed to the nation’s capitol for the Women’s March on Washington Saturday to demand accountability from President-elect Donald Trump and the Republican-controlled Congress. “I decided to go down on Nov. 9,” said Anna Josephson, 32, of Waltham. “I’m worried about his appointments, his hatred and his fearmongering ... I can’t see any sign from him that he thinks women are people, too.”

    ORLANDO, FL (KTRK) -- For the first time in history, a female ringmaster is running the show at Ringling Bros. It took the circus 146 years and a nationwide search, but the opportunity to perform as the first female ringmaster seemingly fell into Kristen Michelle Wilson's lap. "I said, 'I have to throw my hat in the ring when opportunity like this comes along.' You go for it!" Wilson told WKMG-TV. Wilson plays the role so naturally that the fact that she is woman doesn't even come to mind. "This is not a gender-specific role. This is all about being...

    I hesitate to speak negatively about half of the American population but I just can't help noticing the endless anger and lamentation of the modern American woman. I've lived with it through many decades. Feelings of persecution often drive the decisions and beliefs of the modern American woman. Men are almost exclusively believed to be the cause of this persecution when often it has another source or is sometimes even self inflicted. It's not that I'm saying men do no wrong. But men sometimes actually do things right and that is too often ignored with damaging consequences. It is my...

    Why some Philly women are clamoring for contraception before Inauguration Day by Sarah Horvath, M.D. Twitter icon @phillyhealthsci “As long as it’s before the inauguration.” “Anytime before the new Congress takes over.” “Before Obama leaves office…” Women are frantically calling our Philadelphia contraceptive clinic to get their IUDs, implants and sterilizations before Jan. 20. It used to be that women scheduled contraception around life events – weddings, desired number of children, education and career goals. Now they are scheduling appointments around the congressional calendar. They fear that a new administration will take away their contraceptive coverage. And for good reason....

Jennifer Willis no longer plans to be one of them. Ms. Willis, a 50-year-old wedding minister from South Carolina, had looked forward to taking her daughters to the march. Then she read a post on the Facebook page for the march that made her feel unwelcome because she is white. The post, written by a black activist from Brooklyn who is a march volunteer, advised “white allies” to listen more and talk less. It also...

The application says the march’s purpose is “to come together in solidarity to express to the new administration & congress that women’s rights are human rights and our power...

Although Cologne was the focus of migrant-perpetrated sex attacks last year, there were also many cases that occurred in neighbouring Austria. New police reports show that the situation hasn’t changed from last year with multiple cases of sexual assault, violence, and attacks with fireworks committed across the country, reports Der Standard.

    Women have been rapidly climbing the employment and wage ladders in recent decades. But only a small fraction have made it to the top rungs — and their progress may be slowing. New research shows that after making big strides in the 1980s and ’90s, the number of women breaking into the top 1 percent of earners has stalled. Women account for only 16 percent of the 1 percent, a number that has remained essentially flat over the past decade, according to a paper by three economists. And they account for only 11 percent of the top 0.1 percent of...

    We can pinpoint the dawn of our civilization. It didn’t come in ancient Egypt or Babylon. It didn’t even occur in classical Greece, although Athens gave us an edge. We became civilized on the day, 2,000 years ago, when an itinerant rabbi named Jesus stopped a mob from stoning a woman to death. When Jesus said, “Let he who is without sin cast the first stone,” we began to acknowledge the moral equality of girls and women to men. And so began the greatest revolution in human history: the long transition of females from male property to achieving legal and...

In his latest broadside against resistance to change in the Catholic Church’s corridors of power, the 80-year-old pontiff warned that the reform process he launched in 2013 had to lead to more than a cosmetic “facelift” or plastic surgery to remove wrinkles. “Dear brothers, it’s not the wrinkles in the church that you should fear, but the stains!” Francis said in his Christmas speech to senior Curia officials.

CCTV shows the young woman walking through the metro station in Berlin when the man comes up behind her, holding a beer in one hand and a cigarette in the other. The yob, dressed in jeans and a leather jacket, aims a targeted kick at her back, toppling her down the stairs, and then walks away.

    Feminism claims to stand for two things above all: women's equality and enabling women to be strong. Regarding the first aim, no decent man or woman opposes the concept of equality of the sexes. But people who do not call themselves feminists have a problem with the feminist notion of equality: Most feminists have conflated equality and sameness. And that's a huge mistake; the sexes are equal, but they are different. A second major problem regarding the feminist claim of aspiring to women's equality is that feminists frequently provide false evidence to prove that women are not treated as equals.

For a thousand years, writes reviewer Lucetta Scaraffia, the women of the Gospels have been “ignored by a patriarchal tradition.” The Gospels, she continues, discuss “real women, full of troubles, but also able to love more than men, able to understand the revolutionary message of Jesus in its immediacy.” “It would be beautiful to think that after this book, so enlightening … nothing could be as...

I mean the first female President, it did not attract a critical mass of women. I always said, knew and said publicly, probably on Breitbart radio, that she would...

    Preliminary exit poll results show that while she won women by 12 points overall (Trump won men by the same margin, a historic gender gap),1 Clinton lost the votes of white women overall and struggled to win women voters without a college education in states that could have propelled her to victory.

    FULL TITLE: 'Get your birth control that will outlast Trump': Women are being urged to get IUDs before Donald is officially sworn in as president amid healthcare fears Women are being urged to get IUDs before Donald Trump becomes president amid fears over the future of birth control.

    Forty-six years ago, Germaine Greer wrote in The Female Eunuch, “Women have very little idea of how much men hate them.” Well, now we do. On Tuesday, faced with a choice between a highly competent if uncharismatic female candidate and the deranged distillation of the angry white male id, America chose the latter. (Or, at least, the Americans whose votes count most in the Electoral College chose the latter: Hillary Clinton won the popular vote.) We don’t yet have a full picture of the electorate, but according to exit polls published by the New York Times, 54 percent of women...

    According to CNN, 53 percent of white female voters voted for Donald Trump. Fifty-three percent. More than half of white women voted for the man who bragged about committing sexual assault on tape, who said he would appoint Supreme Court justices who would overturn Roe v. Wade, who has promised to undo legislation that has afforded health insurance to millions of uninsured Americans, whose parental leave plan is a joke, who has spent his campaign dehumanizing nonwhite people, who has spent 30-plus years in the public eye reducing women to their sexual attributes. More than half of white women looked...
