The Trump-Klum debate highlights exactly what is wrong with our current views of women in society. As a starting point, how is it that Trump can even consider himself a worthy arbiter of a woman's value in society?
These two women have proved what many of us have argued for years -- that if given the chance, there are women who can hold their own with the most elite warriors in our military, and that all the barriers to women achieving their full potential in the military should come down.
The far right is pitting God against women. Mike Huckabee's support for the decision to deny a 10-year-old rape victim an abortion is just another example in a long history that continues this election season.
The calls for gender equality are global, inspiring, and hard to ignore--as they should be. But, isn't it time we also send up a clear and mighty call about something we often ignore that still holds women back: how tough women are on one another?
While mainstream feminism seems desperate to have in its fold a 19-year-old reality television star who is famous in no small part because her older sister's sex tape went viral, mainstream feminism rejects empowered women of faith.
The practice is common in many African and some Middle Eastern countries. The 2013 UNICEF* report on FGM showed the practice most prevalent in Egypt, Somalia, Ethiopia and Nigeria Recently Nigeria and Somalia outlawed the practice. Still, it prevails in secret.
How are elite businessmen supposed to continue to fill their private prisons with poor and working class people of color, mostly blacks, if that system is challenged and dismantled? It's ludicrous!
Let's fund access to birth control and increase women's access to preventive health care, rather than de-funding Planned Parenthood, which provides low cost access to health care for millions of women (and men).
One of the biggest sources of that doubt about women's abilities comes from women themselves. The next time you shy away from a promotion or an opportunity in favor of sticking with what you know or what you've been told you're good at, reconsider. Knowing what works can be comfortable. It can also be an easy way to go nowhere.
Kudos to companies like Target for being market leaders in the fight for gender equality. Recently, Target announced it would remove gender-based signage. This has some consumers up in arms, but I think this is long overdue in a modern society.
It's stats like the ones listed here that make Girl Up, the United Nations Foundation's adolescent girl campaign, so important. Later this year, the campaign will be celebrating its fifth anniversary, and the wins to date are nothing short of remarkable in a relatively short timeframe.
I love being told that catcalling doesn't exist. That it's something women say happens to them to get attention. That women who are in their 20s should feel appreciative and be thankful that a man would take the time out of his day to offer his opinion of them.
As the blood continued to flow out of Megyn Kelly's "wherever," Donald Trump was still sitting comfortably on top of the GOP primary polls. While Trump's supporter base likely represents a relatively small part of the GOP base, this incident is only adding to the GOP's alienation of women.
For your Integrated Women's Leadership Strategy to succeed, you need to engage the Four Most Important Business Functions to operationalize and execute the plan with a sense of urgency.
I am sure that there will be the usual negative chatter about how women don't belong in professional sports, but that argument is so outdated. The 2015 US women's soccer team euthanized that idea.
Gay men should heed the call at once and come to the defense of women, all women, and their liberty. I not saying we need to take charge or "mansplain" anything to anyone. But where are we gay men in their struggle?
