This week, Duke University published a new study, which found that women wake up grumpier than men. The study's authors attribute the additional grumpiness to women needing more sleep than men. Me? I think there is just a lot to be grumpy about lately.
There are many viewpoints and considerations to take into account when discussing workplace issues. Regulations are needed to move us forward in regards to pay equity, but many aspects of the workplace are more nuanced and require an attitude and paradigm shift.
Elizabeth Warren is one of the most exciting and uplifting Democratic candidates in many years. Todd Akin and Richard Mourdock will leave a different legacy in this election: They dramatize the Republican problem with women, and the Republican problem with rape.
Mitt Romney launched a memorable meme when he said he had "binders of women," but his amusing turn of phrase shined a light on a horrible answer and a big problem. He doesn't support equal pay for women, and, gosh, he's trying so hard not to admit it.
Cracking the glass ceiling isn't just about making sure women have opportunities to work and receive equal pay and fair treatment, it's about women and men taking on equal responsibilities in all areas of life.
"America's Comeback Team" of Romney/Ryan will come back for women's choice, women's health and women's pay, and they will not stop until all of the progress made in the fight for women's equality over the past 50 years has been erased.
Barack Obama would bend the curve of history by bringing the first woman to the vice presidency, thrilling countless women across the nation and around the world while reassuring voters, male and female, young and old, from Florida to Ohio.
Gender equality in the workforce isn't just about benefiting the women who would receive the wages they deserve, but about benefiting our economy as a whole by providing the kind of skilled, sought after workers that we need to grow.
If Republicans want to stop being tarred and feathered by the charge that they wage these wars against women, they should stop fighting them, and start supporting pay equity for women and stop attacking healthcare programs vital for women, their daughters, their sons and their babies.
Arianna and Kellyanne Conway discuss Jonathan Haidt's new book, which argues that "righteousness" precedes self-righteousness. Through that lens, the women debate their different views of the Trayvon shooting and "War on Women".
What I am not hearing anyone say loudly and clearly in this Rosen/Romney snafu is that women's ability -- not desire or choice -- to take part in the economy is based on her freedom to make reproductive decisions.
Find me a few stars of stage, screen and song with the principle and courage that Frank Sinatra showed when he stood up for his brother Sammy Davis Jr. in the 1950's and you can change the world and help end this cold season of hardship and discontent.
How much poorer do we want women to get in the world? It's really hard to imagine. Despite the successes of feminists during the past century, even in the U.S. we have a persistent and growing feminization of poverty.
It is time for change; real change. It is time for protest; strong protest. It is time for patriotism; real patriotism where the many Americans are no long ripped off by the few. It is time to mobilize, organize, rally, to stand in the streets with signs and register to vote.
