It’s pretty clear why the GOP is coming for Elizabeth Warren next. With Hillary Clinton’s running days behind her, Senator Warren is the most high-profile woman in the thick of game for the left.

The Massachusetts senator spoke to an excited Town Hall on Friday June 16 about her new book, This Fight is Our Fight: The Battle To...

The sexual assault trial against Bill Cosby resulted in a mistrial, further reinforcing that the justice system is broken. Nearly 60 women have accused Cosby of sexual assault, and their stories date back to to 1960s, when Cosby first began his comedy career. While most accusations are outside of the statute of limitations, a 2004 incident reported by Andrea Constand - previously a Temple University women’s basketball team director of operations - led to Cosby’s 2015 indictment of 3 felony counts related to the assault. According...

The hashtag #WhatWomenWantIn4Words started trending Friday morning, and lucky for us, men seized this opportunity to prove how complicated women are. I mean, they have a point. We're so confusing!!

Everyone knows women are incapable of making up their minds, even when it comes to the simple stuff. If only it was easier to...

Senator Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) slayed during the Senate Intelligence Committee hearings, and (unsurprisingly) she's being chastised for her directness, both in the hearings and in the press.  After a hearing filled with “I don’t recall” and “I’m unable to answer that” statements from Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Sen. Harris attempted to pin him down on his bullshit and pierce through his slow-rolling deflection. When, for the umpteenth time, Sessions invoked a “long-standing Department of Justice policy” that prevented him from commenting on private communications with...

It’s a well-known fact that Amber Rose is very comfortable posting fire selfies on social media. Most recently, she posted a photo of herself featuring none other than (drumroll please) her bush! Though we loved it, the photo has been taken off Instagram because it "violates the site’s community guidelines" — even though nothing is showing other than her bush. She responded with a video of the eye roll we were all feeling and a smile with the comment, "When IG deletes ur fire ass...

Massive budget cuts to Texas’s health care system are finally starting to show as a study by the University of Maryland reveals that their maternal mortality rate has increased drastically within the past decade.
