While it's easy to get caught up in the famous names gracing the halls of the Women in the World Summit, the main attraction is how the event gives a voice to the voiceless.
We may never know what Hilary Clinton was thinking during the 1998 Monica Lewinsky episode or how Silda Wall Spitzer was reacting when Eliot Spitzer strayed or whether Huma Abedin was severely stand-by-your-man-tested over Anthony Weiner's vigorous sexting. We might never know any of this, but Bruce Clybourne Park Norris has some ideas.
Oh, if only the winds had blown in a new direction we could have enjoyed Weinerdom for years to come.
Why, in an article that is largely about how Weiner's sext-addiction may damage his and his wife's standing with the Clintons, does Dowd feel the need to mention Huma Abedin's upbringing in Saudi Arabia?
Maybe the reason I'm wanting to channel my inner Donna Summer is that I've been on a week-long marathon of Orange Is the New Black. It's so thrilling to watch women chew up the scenery and be funny and crazy and silly and insane and wild and tough and every freaking shade a woman can be.
For years such conduct was kept out of the media by mutual consent. Now, as in the case of Weiner, it is flaunted as a courageous episode of revelation and self-confession, complete with abject apologies.
Here are four reasons "Capitol Hillary," as I liked to call her in the Senate, is one step closer to steering the executive branch.
Anthony Weiner's bizarre behavior has nothing to do with Hillary Clinton herself, but the combination of the close relationship between Clinton and Huma Abedin, and the nature of the scandal itself, could hurt Clinton.
Dear Mr. Weiner, I know you're very busy trying to keep your NYC mayoral bid from ending up in the toilet, but I wanted to take a moment of your time to thank you for being a shining example of what NOT to do in your personal and professional life.
We're (still) being forced to swim in the muck of Anthony Weiner's sextcapades, and now we know who's at fault. It's Hillary Clinton. Weiner's wife Huma Abedin is standing by her man, and the press and pundits alike are saying it's because she took lessons from Hillary.
I have been waiting with some amount of dread for the Court of Public Opinion to conclude that the reason Huma Abedin is standing by her fallen man, Anthony Weiner, is because she's Muslim.
If someone has something to say about Abedin, that person should have the courage to step up and put his or her name on it.
Huma Abedin is more than just her Islam. The extremely reductionist approach that many journalists and media outlets have comfortably taken when dealing with Islam and Muslims is getting pretty ridiculous at this point.
As a therapist who has helped countless couples, I've become aware that social media has directly impacted relationships over the past few years. An ...
We all like a good story of beating the odds, of someone who has been wronged who makes the best of it, and not only survives but thrives. We all want to believe we can do that too, but fear in reality the odds are stacked against us -- at least more so than they are against political wives.
An elected official, or any leader, whether of families, small teams or large organizations, has signed up for more than just being an effective manager. We have to believe in them based on our experience of them, not on what they say to us.
