VAGINAS. I have to admit that I actually agree with the GOP...those vaginas are questionable places.
If you struggle with low self-esteem it may be difficult to invest in self-care. Often women sacrifice our identity and dreams for our mates and our children. Are you still figuring out who you are and what you want? Start loving yourself by getting a coach to help you discover the power of self-love.
What we are looking at is a middle class that is dying, literally, and a party that supposedly represents them holding their head under water. As long as the GOP fights middle class progress they will have a difficult time reaching the votes they need outside of rural areas and winning the presidency.
I still maintain that it's pretty gross to free-bleed while running a marathon, but I understand better now that this is largely Ms. Gandhi's point -- maybe it's gross, but who cares? It's just part of bodies, and it isn't a big deal. Women and especially young girls don't deserve to be shamed.
I attended Hillary Clinton's campaign rally in Portsmouth, New Hampshire on Saturday September 5, where she kicked off her "Women for Hillary" campaign. There is no doubt Hillary Clinton is a polished speaker. But when she talked about how childcare is a women's issue my heart sank.
"A woman's rights affect everyone's rights. This is happening in sectors where people think it's not -- like manufacturing, where women might get only $11-12 an hour. Collaboration is important, and women need to come together. We also need men supporting this."
Attacks on women's self-determination in body, mind and spirit are a staple of our political life because they work. Unless and until we confront the root reasons why patterns of violence against women work, both overt and covert violence against women will continue to be a political mainstay.
When I was nine years old, I asked why my older brother got the fun chores like mowing the grass instead of having to do the hated dishes every night ...
In a homophobic political stunt poorly veiled in "religious beliefs," Rowan County, Kentucky clerk Kim Davis denied marriage licenses to LGBT couples despite a federal court order instructing her that the US Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage nationwide, and she must comply.
I was working at a law firm in New York City, achieving professional success but feeling that something was missing. What was I contributing? Was I reaching my full potential?
The big problem with mansplainers is that the advice they give women is usually unsolicited and unwanted. Mansplainers patronize women by talking down to them as they assume women are incapable of reaching the same conclusion on their own.
At the beginning of the 1900s, grim predictions punctuated the debate over women's suffrage. Everyone in the family unit would be damaged in innumerable ways if this outrage were allowed to happen, argued the critics, some of whom went so far as to predict the end of civilization itself.
Women comprise the majority of food producers, particularly in low-income countries where families rely on smallholder farms for food and income. The sheer amount of human labor involved in this kind of farming is daunting. And as women do much of this work, in addition to their household and care work, their workdays are typically up to 50 percent longer than men's. And yet women and girls tend to receive a smaller portion of the food produced.
On September 5th and every day afterwards remember that there are no human rights that "they" are denied that "we" enjoy, be that defined by gender or geography. When it comes to humanity, we are them and they are us.
"Women's rights are human rights." This simple sentence declared by then-First Lady Hillary Clinton at the Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing in 1995 resonated around the world. Millions of women heard this as a declaration that they mattered, that their daughters mattered.
