    They came together on Independence Day with a message: “Until Black lives are free, none of us are free.” And another, just as important: “Say her name.” Hundreds of people gathered on the Fourth of July to recognize the Black and brown women who have been victims of police violence in Boston and beyond, and to continue the calls for justice and equality that have grown across the nation since the killings of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor.

    Boeing communications boss Niel Golightly has resigned over a sexist article he wrote three decades ago opposing women’s service in the military. His exit leaves the embattled planemaker searching for a new top spokesman as it works to get its troubled 737 MAX jet flying again. Golightly stepped down Thursday as Boeing’s senior vice president of communications following an employee complaint about the 1987 article, which he called “embarrassingly wrong and offensive.”
  • $1.5B in NYPD cuts not enough for AOC: ‘Defunding police means defunding police’

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said Tuesday the proposed $1.5 billion NYPD budget slash didn’t go far enough. “Defunding police means defunding police. It does not mean budget tricks or funny math. It does not mean moving school police officers from the NYPD budget to the Department of Education’s budget so the exact same police remain in schools,” the self-described Democratic Socialist said in a press release about the budget deal between the City Council and Mayor de Blasio. “It does not mean counting cuts in overtime as cuts, even as NYPD ignores every attempt by City Council to curb overtime spending...
  • China sterilising ethnic minority women in Xinjiang, report says

    The Guardian ^ | 06/29/2020
    Chinese authorities are carrying out forced sterilisations of women in an apparent campaign to curb the growth of ethnic minority populations in the western Xinjiang region, according to research published on Monday. The report, based on a combination of official regional data, policy documents and interviews with ethnic minority women, has prompted an international group of lawmakers to call for a United Nations investigation into China’s policies in the region. The move is likely to enrage Beijing, which has denied trampling on the rights of ethnic groups in Xinjiang, and which on Monday called the allegations “baseless”. The country is...

    Helena Howard says it's legal on non-Minneapolis Park Board roads and that women should be able to go topless on a hot day. MINNEAPOLIS — When planning a bike ride, a helmet is a must. Sometimes Helena Howard brings her adorable pup, Grazie, along too. All else for them is optional though, including a shirt. "I think it's pretty silly," Howard said. "They're just nipples." Howard has been biking topless for a while now. . .

    Social media is awash with curious images of woke white women creating mayhem at Black Lives Matter demonstrations. They’ve burned down a Wendy’s, set fire to cop cars, screamed obscenities in the faces of police officers, and assaulted a Wisconsin lawmaker. It’s strange to observe white women in pricey athleisure scream at black cops and dress like they’re in “The Purge” to set fast food restaurants ablaze. It raises a question as to why members of the fairer sex are on the frontlines of riotous efforts to support a movement that insists they’re racist, capitalism is racist, and the whole...

    Editor's Note: This piece was coauthored by Cynthia Collins, a Global Advisor to Operation Outcry. “It is 2020 and women can speak for themselves” is a common theme in the mainstream media of today.Nearly every time we turn on a television or scroll through social media, we are bombarded with this pro-feminist messaging. This year alone, there will be millions of dollars in political advertisement promoting this concept. Yet, the very same people are trying to say they speak for women in the Louisiana Unsafe Abortion Act case currently before the Supreme Court. Our answer is no, you do not....

    KOBANI, Syria (North Press) – Four women lost their lives including a feminist activist and many others injured on Tuesday evening in an aerial bombardment allegedly by Turkish air force that targeted the village of Helenj, east of the town of Kobani, north Syria, local sources said. The sources in the village told North Press that a feminist activist, named Zahra Barkal, was among the women who lost their lives in the bombardment. Barkal was an official in the Kurdish Women Organization, known as Kongreya Star, which activities focus on the feminist movement in northeastern Syria. Barkal was visiting a...

    ERBIL (Kurdistan 24) – A Turkish drone strike on Tuesday evening killed three civilian females at a residence in the village of Helincę, located outside the northern Syrian city of Kobani, according to local security forces. The General Command of the Kurdish-led Internal Security Forces (ISF), also known as the Asayesh, in an official statement said blamed the “Turkish occupation” for the attack. “We in the General Command of the Internal Security Forces (ISF) for Northeast Syria condemn the crimes of the Turkish occupation against our people and we also call on the International Coalition and the Russian Federation to...

    Women account for 55% of the more than 20.5 million workers who lost their jobs in April due to the coronavirus pandemic, causing some experts to call this recession — the worst since the Great Depression — the “Shecession.” “One of the biggest impacts of this pandemic is the loss of jobs, the loss of income, which has been disproportionately affecting women,” said Carole Biewener, professor of economics and women’s and gender studies at Simmons University in Boston. “And that’s unusual in a recession.”

    When it comes to who is the better shooter and why, men or women, the iconic Irving Berlin duet from Annie Get Your Gun immediately springs to mind. “Anything you can do I can do better! I can do anything better than you” is sung while Annie Oakley and Frank Butler prepare for the climactic sharpshooting contest in the classic Broadway musical. For an object as functionally gender-neutral as a gun, why is it that each of the sexes assumes they are better adept at mastering it? Any quality instructor will tell you the real weapon is not the gun....

    Newsweek ^ | June 10, 2020 | Alexandra Hutzler
    But the president might not get so lucky this time around. A wave of new polling shows that Trump is doing significantly worse among women than he was four years ago. According to an analysis from the New York Times, Trump trailed Clinton by 14 points among female voters heading into 2016. Today, he's behind expected Democratic nominee Joe Biden by 25 points. "That's a huge falloff and a big problem," said Douglas Holtz-Eakin, president of the center-right American Action Forum. Plus, a key demographic that helped seal Trump's electoral victory is starting to erode. Recent polling shows that white...

    Kim Thompson clutches a piece of paper in her well-manicured hands. On it she has written the names of boyfriends she met while dating online. She talks me through the list. First, there was complicated Chris, followed by Ben who was a disappointment in bed, and strange Tim who had a habit of talking non-stop about his collection of Hornby toy trains. Then there was the property developer who took her out for dinner, slopped spaghetti down his front and told Kim on their first date how much he liked sex. There are lots of others, too, whom she came...

    Urban trekking around Denver the other day, I happened across a protest march of maybe a thousand people. Here’s what I observed. The marchers were almost all white. I saw fewer than a dozen black people and no Hispanics. Most were young women looking vaguely guilt-ridden. They were well-dressed, well-groomed and well-fed. I’m not passing judgment, mind you, but just reporting the facts.... But one sign troubled me. It appeared in various incantations, but the gist was “Justice NOW for George.” Are the protesters demanding that we bypass the trial and just lynch the cops right now? What kind of...

    One in three women in Europe inherited the receptor for progesterone from Neandertals -- a gene variant associated with increased fertility, fewer bleedings during early pregnancy and fewer miscarriages. This is according to a study published in Molecular Biology and Evolution by researchers at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Germany and Karolinska Institutet in Sweden... Progesterone is a hormone that plays an important role in the menstrual cycle and in pregnancy. Analyses of biobank data from more than 450,000 participants -- among them 244,000 women -- show that almost one in three women in Europe have inherited...

    'Mrs. America' tries to paint Phyllis Schlafly as cold and unforgiving, but the conservative icon my grandmother and I knew was nothing of the sort. My grandmother was in a Daughters of the American Revolution Chapter with Phyllis Schlafly from 1965 to 1990. A few years before she died, I had the privilege to intern for Mrs. Schlafly. So, during quarantine, as we watched the FX series “Mrs. America” together, we became filled with growing frustration and disgust at seeing the woman we had known misrepresented and defamed. What is most striking about “Mrs. America,” however, is how little it...
