There's an old adage attributed to many pundits that aptly applies to Donald Trump's campaign to become our next president: "I don't care what you say about me, as long as you say something about me, and as long as you spell my name right."
College women - many who are voting for their first time - will be significantly impacted by the 2016 election. Whereas gendered rights have been political pawns throughout history, in 2016 we are taking steps backwards. Gains made are being eroded.
Let's hear it - one more time - for the Millennials. Especially the youngest Millennials, just now rea...
Two weeks ago, Cecile Richards spoke at Georgetown University, an event that drew criticism from some students, alumni and outside organizations, such as the Washington Diocese. There are three reasons why we, alumnae of the school who work on social justice issues, applauded the school's decision to allow Richards to speak on campus.
I've often found myself reflecting on the first year of being a mother. Wondering if I feel robbed of what is supposed to be an amazing time in my life, whereas actually it was the most horrendous at times.
Women have sex drives. From Beyonce's "Partition," to college hookup culture, women are becoming more comfortable expressing that they want to engage in sexual activity, not to please a man, but to please themselves.
Thirty-three Republican members of the Colorado legislature joined last year with the Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), a national anti-choice and ant...
New York's primary election changed everything for both the Democratic and Republican nomination contests.
When we look back on this dismal campaign season we'll notice how the real theme of 2016 was the way in which good, old-fashioned misogyny made a roaring comeback. Like a deadening bass-drum, it has functioned as the backbeat of 2016 to such an extent that we hardly hear it anymore.
We knew we couldn't sit on the sidelines. We issued our first-ever primary endorsement because Hillary is a standout leader on reproductive health. And because the challenges facing the people who come to Planned Parenthood health centers were too urgent for us to to "wait and see."
Yesterday, on a quiet, beautiful afternoon in Rhinebeck, New York, I (the Lo of EMandLO.com) squeezed into the greenhouse wing of the historic Beekman Arms (one of the oldest continuously operating inns in America, and also where Chelsea Clinton had her rehearsal dinner) to see Cecile Richards, President of Planned Parenthood, speak about the importance of women's reproductive rights and voting for the candidate most equipped to protect them, Hillary Clinton.
Given the positive developments over the last few decades involving the expansion of women's rights and gay rights, it is alarming to witness "legalized intolerance" exemplified through the recently adopted "religious freedom" bill in Georgia.
6:30 a.m. The President will revoke the Second Amendment and take away your precious guns. The President will depart Las Vegas en route to Los Angeles.
Hillary Clinton's or Sanders' election as president might well ensure a left of center bent on the Supreme Court. But even a flip of the Senate into Democratic hands would not unshackle residents in many states from regressive laws enacted by state legislatures and signed by doctrinaire conservative governors.
What is most offensive about the Trump, Cruz, Carson, anti-abortion contention that women who have abortions are "victims" is that it is profoundly dishonest and insulting to the dignity and integrity of women. They should be ashamed.
I would like to thank Donald Trump. While his race to the White House requires the collapse of civil discourse and rewards breaking what had been seen to be the limits of polite speech, he has, at least, revealed a LIE long told by the anti-abortion/"pro-life" movement.
