As we register to vote -- as we walk into the voting booth -- we must remember the choice we're making. One option is a candidate who promises to turn back the clock on women's rights and our access to health care. Thankfully, we have a far better option: President Obama.
I do not suggest that Mitt Romney has to run around like the Dutch boy and plug every stupid comment made by a member of his own party, but when he does, he should at least demonstrate some passion and principle.
During the seven years of developing my novel One Woman's Vengeance, I realized with dismay that in some major areas not that much has changed for women.
What happened with Rush was that Americans everywhere asked themselves whether they wanted to live in a society where a man who solicits sex tapes from a college student and calls her a slut is rewarded with ad dollars and fame. The answer was a resounding no. And that's a good thing.
We, as a gathering of college women, must take the responsibility that comes with our education and use it to help people. We are the voice of those who don't and won't have the opportunity to change reality like we can.
As an advisory board member of Glamour Women of the Year, I have the privilege of nominating five inspiring women -- or groups of women -- who have made an impact in 2012. And I'd love to hear your suggestions.
Could the 'war on women' be mobilizing a new generation of women leaders? I decided to contact some prominent women to find out. Here's what they told me.
Bozell is playing partisan politics here. He wants his right-wing friends in Congress to help him harass and destroy a business, something he has been spectacularly unsuccessful at doing on his own. He's pursuing a vendetta, not justice.
Emotional intelligence is the bedrock of civil discourse not only within corporations, but throughout society.
Mr. Obama, please take seriously the needs of women and do not presume that the female vote is yours for the taking.
Fluke is using her media spotlight to draw attention to a number of issues that women in America are facing today -- continuing a century-long struggle that Margaret Sanger began in the 1910's.
How the gas industry got itself in this fracking mess has a lot in common with how Rush Limbaugh's sneers about Sandra Fluke's contraception may have cost the Republicans the November elections.
Women are free to choose the employers that are best for them, and women who prioritize free access to birth control can seek out institutions that offer that benefit. Then, employers would have an incentive to offer contraceptive coverage.
We should ask our doctors about the politics with a small "p" that's embedded in their advice -- the moral and cultural leanings that weigh on clinical judgment.
The whole environment surrounding a woman's right to access a safe, legal abortion is premised on the assumption that women are not capable of making their own moral, religious, and ethical decisions without the intrusion and supervision of the government.
There is no question of rights here. Media Matters is fully within its rights to run ad campaigns against Limbaugh. They are exercising their right to free speech.
