Image via Hunter College Roosevelt House symposium webpage Last night, an esteemed panel met in New York to discuss the questions we’ve been asking non-stop since the election:  How did Clinton lose? And how do women win? The panel was part of a Hunter College symposium on the role sexism played in the election, which, while it has been acknowledged, has been underrecognized in the conversations around what went wrong (Why...
We have to protect unborn children. Life is sacred. We must defend the sanctity of life. Or at least that’s the logic conservative lawmakers regularly invoke in their attempt to limit women’s control over their own bodies. Texas Rep. Jessica Farrar (D) has introduced a satirical bill to the state legislature, turning this logic back against men by “creating a civil penalty for unregulated masturbatory emissions.” “Emissions outside of a woman’s vagina, or created outside of a health or medical facility, will be charged a $100 civil...
Almost everyone I know had one. I know I did. Mine was Josephina, and my sister’s was Felicity. I am talking, of course, about American Girls Dolls. They came with a book and you could feed into the consumerism and buy them outfits and accessories. Enter the 2030 doll collection. It’s a futuristic parody of The American Girls dolls. While American Girls tend to reinforce traditional gender roles, these dolls have a STEM focus, encouraging the exploration of science and technology in a changing world. Created...
In today’s news of why some men are the worst, we bring you the viral picture of a young man making an aggressive humping motion at the “Fearless Girl” statue on Wall Street. The “Fearless Girl” was erected across from the “Charging Bull” statue last week, just before International Women's Day and A Day Without A Woman.

It started with a comment from a coworker. She looked at the book I was reading with hard eyes; I can’t remember the title, but I know it was feminist text. I was reading a lot of those because of the election, when I realized how little I knew. “What are you reading?” she asked. I held up the book, even though I knew she knew what I was reading. “Why are you reading it?” Ah, there was the real question. “Because if I’m going to...
Amal Clooney, a renowned international human rights lawyer, delivered a speech at the United Nations on Thursday, calling for action to be taken in an investigation of ISIS. The speech was powerful, delivered only a day after International Women’s Day, but rather than focusing on the feat of a female lawyer addressing the UN about one of the most important international issues, headlines seemed to only focus on her baby bump, what she was wearing and her marriage with actor George Clooney. In the same way...
Workplace sexism is no myth, but to many men, it isn’t as visible as we’d like it to be. A recent story caught the eye of the Twittersphere and has people talking about sexism in the workplace and how it's blatant presence is obvious to women while seemingly invisible to men. The true story about a female employee, told by a male co-worker, explained how even via email women are discriminated against. After accidentally using his female co-worker’s signature, Martin Schneider realized that clients were unreasonably...
Abortion rights are threatened now more than ever, with Trump threatening to defund Planned Parenthood and state laws cropping up that complicate reproductive health care, like a proposed Texas law that would make it legal for doctors to withhold information from pregnant women about fetal deformities or disabilities. March 10 is National Abortion Provider Appreciation Day, and we felt it was important to take the time to talk about exactly what that means and why it’s important, especially in Trump's America. National Abortion Provider Appreciation Day...
Remember that Canadian judge who asked a sexual assault survivor why she couldn’t just keep her “knees together” to avoid penetration? Well, because men are rewarded for saying misogynistic things, he became a federal judge last year. But in an act of the universe setting things right, he announced his resignation effective March 10, following the recommendation of a Canadian judiciary board. Back in 2014, Judge Robin Camp was presiding over a sexual assault case in which the plaintiff was testifying about her attack that took place in...
