Coordination between government and civil society can take strides towards remedying this immense problem. True collaboration between these sectors is imperative to stop violence against women, and in the United States, it has led to a significant decrease in the rates of domestic violence and gender-based violence.

Notice the irony of Trump benefitting from the politics of resentment. Billionaires like Trump make off with too much of the nation's income and wealth, at the expense of ordinary working stiffs. And then Trump puts on his politician's hat and cashes in on the resentment. And here's where it gets really tricky. Some of the ultra-P.C. stuff is silly and makes it easier for the right to lampoon liberals. The broader challenge here is that many of the causes that Trump and company put down as P.C. are legitimate and overdue. How long will it take before cops who brutalize black citizens are brought to justice? Do we really want to evict 12 million law abiding immigrants, many of whom were brought here as kids? But when the local working class is getting clobbered economically, it's easier to play off the races against each other.
These last 12 months have proved to be a magnificent period of change, flex, and eventually growth, in my coaching business. But, before I tell you about those 3 most crucial lessons I've learned, I'd like to share a little bit of background with you.
It turns out that the secret to making successful New Year's resolutions is to not make them.
Well we did it. Made it through another year. When it comes to women, we've had some good news, and some bad news, with a little weird news thrown in.
I have this to say to you: Stop it, you stupid, ignorant young idiots.
When I began looking back over the myriad events involving gender equality -- victories and losses -- in 2015, I wondered how our relationship measured up under Sara's own feminist ideal.
Although this year had its ups and downs, there were some incredible women who continued to be positive role models.
35 years ago, courts were just starting to rule that sexual harassment was against the law; women earned only 60 cents for every dollar earned by men, and paid maternity leave was not even a pipe dream. At box offices across the country, the film 9 to 5 received both critical and commercial success.
The persistent barriers to equality and economic security faced by women and girls are numerous and they are urgent. We will stand with advocates, legislators, businesses, and community members to address them in 2016. Let's gain inspiration from the 2015 wins!
Dress, let alone practicing their religion, can set these women apart from the culture around them. That is not to say there is no fashion involved - indeed their fashions are quite intricate. Yet what I have learned from these close friends of mine is there is no shame in not fitting in perfectly with the women around you.
Nearly 60 percent of respondents said their history education focused more on the contributions and accomplishments of men than women, and previous research has demonstrated that only 15 percent of figures in history textbooks are women.
As soon as Mr. Trump uttered those words, "blood coming out of her whatever," regarding Megyn Kelly after her forceful questioning of him, he should have been morally disqualified from candidacy. The resultant outrage should have dissolved all possibility of his ever being taken seriously again.
I could write a long thoughtful essay on Hijab. How it is terribly confining and suffocating when forced but liberating when chosen. I could tell you how it is more a folk custom than a religious imposition in some parts of the world, kind of like the Sari or the headdress for Arab men or hats for cowboys.
I just watched Stars Wars and I am so proud of Disney for creating the first true Warrior Princess.
