    Former clinic managers for Planned Parenthood say the organization is less interested in providing quality health care for women than in performing as many abortions as possible.In a video released by Live Action last week, former clinic manager Ramona Treviño compares the relationship between Planned Parenthood and women to that between a rancher and cattle.“For me, it was a struggle, because I felt like Planned Parenthood treated women like cattle,” Ms. Treviño says in the three-minute video. That sentiment is echoed by former clinic manager Sue Thayer, who recalls receiving instructions from Planned Parenthood to get patients in and out...

    A Nebraska teen who fatally threw her newborn out a second-floor window sent her boyfriend a series of disturbing texts about the murder. Antonia Lopez, 16, reportedly texted her boyfriend saying “It was a girl by the way” after killing the premature infant in September. The teen then later added, “Babe we can try again if you still want to be with me.”

    Add 100 consecutive wins to the UConn Huskies' long list of milestones. Given the team's glitzier numbers linked to national championships, 11 titles and counting, it may seem ho-hum with no added significance. Geno Auriemma's squad already owns the longest winning streak in Division I college basketball history. UConn beat its own record of 90 consecutive wins earlier this season with little fanfare.

    I don’t know that I serve my own mental health needs by putting my body on the line to feign solidarity with women who by and large didn’t have my back prior to November. I’ve never felt any thing remotely resembling sisterhood with White women. Friendship, affinity, fondness, love—sure. Sisterhood? Nah. That sense of loyalty, interconnectedness, accountability and shared struggle simply isn’t there. That lack of sisterhood haunted me at times during the 2016 election season. As Election Day approached and Secretary Hillary Rodham Clinton emerged as the frontrunner, I waited to feel something. Some sort of connection between her...

    Left wing women are showered with praise in the media, while right wing women are harshly censured. During the 2016 Presidential Election, Hillary Clinton and Melania Trump were treated very differently. Distasteful liberal bias reared its ugly head, once again. Democrat nominee, Hillary Clinton was applauded for the white pantsuit that she wore to the third Presidential Debate. The media linked her attire to the Women’s Suffrage Movement and their connotations of virginal purity. Mrs. Clinton’s pantsuit was reported as having “invoked patriotism and the history of women’s struggle for political equality in America.” Soon-to-be First Lady, Melania Trump, wore...

    When Anne Kirkpatrick took the helm at the scandal-ridden Oakland Police Department, she inherited an agency that the city’s mayor likened to a frat house. The veteran police officer knew she inevitably would be asked what it’s like to combat the culture as one of a growing number of women heading police departments, many struggling to repair their public image. […] 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, it’s natural they would tap more women as leaders. …

    Muslim activist Linda Sarsour was one of four main organizers of the successful Women’s March on Washington. She’s received negative press in the past, but now that her profile’s raised she’s 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 she’s an Islamist who’s trying to hijack a women’s movement that Donald Trump’s misogyny has helped revitalize. The question now: Is Sarsour viciously and unfairly targeted because she’s a Muslim, as...

President Trump has allegedly enforced a dress code upon female members of staff in the White House, insisting that they need to ‘dress like women’. A source, who worked on Trump’s campaign, also stated that the President places an exacting emphasis on appearance of his staff and insists that they ‘look the part’. The source also suggested that most women feel pressure to wear dresses in order to impress him and commented that...

    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.

    At the time of the Roe v. Wade decision, I was a college student — 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 “underground newspaper” Off Our Backs. As you’d guess, I was strongly in favor of legalizing abortion. The bumper sticker on my car read, “Don’t labor under a misconception; legalize abortion.” 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...

They cheered wildly when President Trump said in his inaugural address that the U.S. will eradicate radical Islamic terrorism from the face of the earth. The next day, they looked on in shock and horror at the violent protests in the streets. They were even more horrified when they saw American women wearing hijabs, Muslim headscarves worn as a sign of piety. But this wasn’t Kansas. It wasn’t even the Midwest. It was the Middle East.

Only one of the seven candidates vying for the chairmanship of the Democratic National Committee, South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg, attended a march, while...

American women have more respect and freedoms than most women in the world. But these marchers are unhinged, enraged, and deranged because their favorite Maoista lost the election. So they’ve turned our nation’s capital into a bizarre spectacle of hatred and petulant intolerance, verbally attacking the rest of the country who disagrees with them.

    Iowa lawmakers are considering a bill that would allow a woman who gets an abortion to sue the doctor who performed the procedure if she experiences emotional distress later. If approved, it would be the first law of its kind in the U.S. The proposal, which was endorsed Tuesday by a GOP-led three-member panel of lawmakers, would permit the woman to file a lawsuit at any point in her life, something that goes against typical statute of limitation rules. It could also make the state vulnerable to costly court challenges.

    President-elect Donald Trump responded to Vanity Fair publishing a savage review of the Trump Grill last month by suggesting the magazine’s “no talent” editor, Graydon Carter, “will be out.” But on Friday, it’s Trump who will be inside Condé Nast, home to Vanity Fair and publications including The New Yorker, Vogue, Teen Vogue, Wired, GQ and Glamour. Trump is scheduled sit down with Carter and other members of Condé Nast’s leadership team, including Vogue editor and longtime Democratic donor Anna Wintour, at the company’s World Trade Center headquarters.

    Gabriel Sherman reports in New York Magazine on Megyn Kelly’s departure from Fox News for NBC. Sherman’s sources claim that the cable network hopes to replace Kelly with a “pro-Trump conservative” female host in order “to align itself with the new administration.” Another Fox insider tells Sherman that Rupert Murdoch “balked when Kelly asked for $25 million late in the talks,” a claim which a source close to Kelly disputes.

    Organizers of the Women’s March on Washington estimate 200,000 people will participate in its inauguration weekend protest, according to a National Park Service's list of First Amendment permit applications. The group organizing the protest (which was initially pegged as a “million woman march”) applied for a permit application under the name “The Gathering for Justice,” according to Mike Litterst, the chief of communications for the NPS’ National Mall & Memorial Parks. 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...

    Dear Mrs. Web, I went out to dinner with a few friends recently. Several of the guys who are my friends, were there with their fiancées. One guy has been away in the military for a long time and we were all happy to see him. His girlfriend and he were snippy with each other and over the evening their arguing became more intense. The bulk of the argument seemed to be that he didn’t get the right items when he went shopping earlier. She just kept hammering it. It was uncomfortable for everyone, and we all broke up early....

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...
