I have been feeling like an old feminist trying to come to a brand new understanding about why so many -- but especially young women -- think my generation's feminism has no relevance, not just in the presidential campaign, but in their lives.

The very ferocity and coordinated nature of the attacks on Sanders makes clear that the Democratic establishment views Sanders not merely as an annoyance, but as an existential threat. And he may be, at that.

'Gloria and Madeline, What Were You Thinking!?' When Aging Feminists Say Patronizing Things

I cringed last week as my feminist icons said insulting and degrading things to other women. Seriously Gloria!? Younger women voters support Bernie because "that's where the boys are"?! If a man had said, that we would have skewered him, as we are doing to you, for good reason.

Denigrating icons of the social movement before yours who misspoke does not move that agenda forward, if anything it is a diversion from real change.

Friday Talking Points -- Back to the 1960s

For those readers who weren't alive (or old enough) to experience the 1960s, this week we had somewhat of a history lesson, packaged as a Democratic debate. Part of why this happened is that the Democratic presidential campaign has entered into a "convince the minority voters" phase.

A Place in Hell or Hell on Earth?

When Madeliene Albright threatened women who voted for Bernie Sanders with a place in hell, my first thought was, "how can she condemn a whole new generation of feminists for being what those of us over 60 fought so hard to raise up and educate?"

In Defense of Madeleine Albright (Not That She Needs It)

Lee Lee | Posted 02.10.2016 | Politics

If you consider yourself a feminist and are supporting Sanders during this primary season, please ask yourself honestly: Do I support his policies in and of themselves? Or am I swayed to his side because of a lifetime of covert sexist microaggressions that leave me disgusted with "the establishment?"

A friend told me the other day that her daughter cancelled her flight to come home for Thanksgiving because she feared another Paris-like attack in this country. She's driving, instead.

Living in a sacrifice zone is no way to live. Many of us care about our relationship to climate change -- now we need to reach beyond and help women across the globe move from fear to caring about solutions.

Seduction Diplomacy

As nationalism may seduce the masses, so may vanity have the same effect upon individual diplomats engaged in conflict resolution. While some may debate what strategic interests, conspiracies or prejudices are at play in motivating policy, too frequently it may be the egos of the personalities involved.

We are in danger of losing the most pressing global security and justice challenges of our times. That's what motivates a prestigious blue ribbon panel, co-chaired by former U.S. Secretary of State Madeline Albright and Professor Ibrahim Gambari, the former Foreign Minister of Nigeria and UN Under-Secretary-General for Political Affairs.

Nothing illustrates better the moral and intellectual bankruptcy of the Republican war hawks who call themselves presidential candidates than their attempts to whitewash the history of how this nation went to war in Iraq.

To some, fear is a motivator, to others a sales tactic and to still others, a sign of weakness. Ironically, that sentence is equally true when the word "fear" is replaced with the word "hope."

Watching my mother pick up the financial pieces of her life over and over again is why I talk about careers and, frankly, why I've worked so hard in my own. My husband is an amazing man and I love him dearly, but if he left me tomorrow, I could stand on my feet. I tripled my salary in eight years so, yes, I'd be fine.
