the social stigma surrounding ladies who are uncoupled by choice or by chance still runs deep. Below, 25 accomplished women -- including Shonda Rhimes and Diane Keaton -- discuss what being alone and living as single, independent women means to them.
Wouldn't you agree that the losing litigant in a trial rife with falsities and error -- from an imposter judge to undeniable anti-Semitism -- deserv...
To see what the Trump/Clinton matchup really means, it's helpful to look not just at this week's Democratic convention but to another convention. Earlier in July, speaking to an energized crowd at the annual LULAC (League of United Latin American Citizens) gathering in Washington, D.C.
Perhaps When Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg called Donald Trump a "faker" this past week, she was just doing what she knew best: expressing...
I'm not angry at Trump. I'm angry at the electorate, at the stupid, self-centered, uninformed, xenophobic, even racist, ignorant, personality-driven voters willing to turn this country over to a man who, as McCullough points out, lacks any of the four key qualities President Dwight D. Eisenhower said a leader must possess: character, ability, responsibility and experience.
Strong, opinionated women, like "The Notorious RBG," are always criticized. She spoke what many people already feel about the utterly unqualified Donald Trump. Her comments deserve a deeper analysis beyond subjective punditry or sanctimonious Tweets.
The danger of Ginsburg's comments is not that they reveal that justices, like all other people, have personal political preferences. The danger is that Ginsburg will be perceived -- correctly -- as having sought to use her very privileged position to influence the election.
If we lived in some ideal world in which judges could be expected to be genuinely apolitical, I could see the advantages of having them stay silent regarding candidates, issues, and elections. But that's not our world, and I'd rather proceed in a way that acknowledges the way things really are.
All this talk about Ruth Bader Ginsburg and her dismissive comments about Donald Trump possibly harming Hillary Clinton seems to be wishful thinking on the part of the media and possibly just pseudo purist analysis on the part of political/legal observers.
Those who have studied the role of the Supreme Court in American life understand above all this November's election is about who will nominate and confirm the next Justices.
As members of Congress -- as well as one candidate for the presidency -- repeatedly speak about rolling back women's reproductive rights, it's time to take a hard look at the actual status of women in the United States.
On June 16, 1972, five men dined together for the last time in the restaurant of the Watergate Hotel. A few hours later they taped open the door to a...
Lately, Ed Blum's name has been everywhere. At least, when it comes to Supreme Court cases. Whether it is affirmative action, voting rights, or redistricting, Blum has been leading a well-funded effort to limit who has representation in our democracy.
Today's ruling is a huge win for our democracy. It affirms the principle that everyone counts and everyone deserves representation.
Ginsburg was a legal visionary born at a time when girls were expected to marry lawyers. Though she was consistently academically excellent, she did not become a feminist until mid-life, defying the early-bloomer narrative. But when she did, she spent a decade deliberately transforming women's status under the law.
With Justice Scalia gone from the Court, no one can say what will happen next, with respect to forced arbitration or any other issue. But the exceptionally strong words of Justices Ginsburg and Kagan raise a very real possibility that the Supreme Court's love affair -- with forcing Americans into arbitration even when it lets corporations break the law with impunity -- may finally be over.
