    The Golden Globes carpet typically glitters with crystal-studded gowns in pastel hues, but it looked different in January 2018: The ballgowns were black, and the night’s key accessory was a pin that read “Time’s Up.” Onstage, Oprah Winfrey brought guests to their feet with a warning to powerful abusers: “Their time is up!” Five years later, Time’s Up — the now-embattled anti-harassment organization founded with fanfare during the early days of the #MeToo reckoning against sexual misconduct — is ceasing operations, at least in its current form. A year after pledging a “major reset” following a scandal involving its leaders’...

    Microsoft announced on Thursday it has hired a law firm to review how the company handled sexual harassment allegations against some of its top executives - including founder Bill Gates - and is expected to release its findings in the spring. The review will be conducted by Washington, D.C.-based Arent Fox LLP, which the board of directors selected because it has experience in dealing with sexual harassment allegations and has not conducted much work with the company in the past. After the law firm's findings go public, Microsoft is set to release a report detailing its sexual harassment investigations and...

Leadership informed staff of the decision in a virtual meeting that started 15 minutes before the Post article made the pink slips national news. “They said on the call,...

    Several Palestinian clans have rejected The Convention of the Elimination of all Forms of Discrimination Against Women, a move widely seen as a revolt against the PA. Critics of the treaty claim that it goes against Arab and Islamic norms and teachings. “This treaty is unacceptable to Arabs and Muslims,” remarked Palestinian activist Abu Ghassan Shaheen. “It goes against our religion and traditions.” On Saturday, leaders of large Palestinian clans in Hebron called on the PA to withdraw from the treaty. They also called for banning feminist groups from entering Palestinian schools. The clan leaders expressed opposition to the PA’s...

    'This is a hill worth dying on,' says the best-selling thriller writer Robert Harris, defending his right to create a character of any colour or gender, whatever the woke warriors may say. 'We have to have the artistic freedom to imagine and write about other sexes, other times. I think that is very important. Are you saying a woman can’t write a book in which there’s a male character? It’s ludicrous.'

    ALBANY, NY—Amid calls for his resignation, embattled New York Governor Andrew Cuomo defended himself as the victim of America's cruel history of bigotry against Italian people who murder the elderly while also being sex predators. "I'm being persecuted, and I'm sad to say this is nothing new," said Cuomo in a statement. "America has struggled with this kind of racism for a long time. We Italian guys have a long and proud culture of groping every single woman we encounter, and of killing thousands of seniors in nursing homes. It's just a part of our heritage, and too many people...

The great American playwright wasn't talking specifically about New York Governor Andrew Cuomo – but he might as well have been. Because, to borrow Olympic parlance as the Tokyo Games end, the fork-tongued, disingenuous, duplicitous, charlatan sleazeball has soared to Gold-medal levels of lying and hypocrisy.
