The Women Of America Thank You, Donald

Gloria Feldt | October 20, 2016 | Women
Women brought everyone into this world and we are taking our rightful place in it, starting with ownership of our own bodies and being the CEO's of our own lives. You, Mr. Trump, brought out the klieg lights and exposed the old order for what it is: misogyny in a party dress. Human liberation properly includes everyone--no matter the gender.

Together We Thrive: A Better Future For All Women And Girls

Valerie Jarrett | October 20, 2016 | Women
I've seen what works and what doesn't. We know what the solutions are and we have a blueprint for how we can continue to do the important research to find our way and ensure that every girl and every women has an opportunity to compete on an even playing field in this greatest country on earth.

The Sex And The City Myth

Vanessa Van Edwards | October 20, 2016 | Women
I grew up watching Friends. I fell in love with Chandler Bing and cheered for Ross and Rachel. I cried when Phoebe lost her cat. I couldn't wait for the day I could have my own Central Perk where my close-knit group of friends would lounge on an over-stuffed orange couch for hours just chatting and teasing each other. I waited. And I waited. And I waited.

Viva La Vulva! -- The Pussy Revolution

Pamela Brill | October 20, 2016 | Women
When women are objectified, they can't possibly be represented fairly so laws that benefit them become irrelevant. Equal pay for women is far from a priority if what you really are focused on is how they walk down a runway in stilettos.

Trump & The Dim Sex Balloon Animals (Women)

Lily Bevan | October 20, 2016 | Women
I listened to the actual Trump audio tape for the first time -- 'Grab them by the pussy.' Felt sick. Also, familiar. The nasty simple belief behind those comments -- that women are not equally human, that we are kind of dim sex balloon animals -- is widely shared. All...

The Problem With "The Nice Guy"

Amy Begel | October 20, 2016 | Women
One fascinating aspect of my work as a couples/ family therapist is that it gives me an intimate view into the current cultural dynamics of couples. For the last twenty or so years, over half the couples I see contain the "nice guy" with his frustrated wife.

There's Nothing Cavalier About Late-Term Abortion

Laura J. Akers | October 20, 2016 | Women
Last night, Donald Trump portrayed women who have late-term abortions as barbaric, cruel, and, worst and most ugly of all, cavalier about the lives of their babies. As I sat there, listening to him, I understood at a level many do not, just how much damage he was...

22 Years... And Counting

CT Working Moms | October 20, 2016 | Weddings
My husband and I have been together for over 20 years. That's a very long time. We met in high school and watched each other graduate high school, college, and graduate school, find (and change) careers, and become parents. We watched each other become adults and now we are watching each other age.

Donald Trump Confuses Birth With Abortion. And No, There Are No Ninth Month Abortions.

Dr Jennifer Gunter | October 20, 2016 | Healthy Living
The third and final presidential debate focused very quickly on abortion. Clinton defended choice, and Trump ― not one to be bothered with facts ― countered with this doozy of line: I think it’s terrible if you go with what Hillary is saying... in the ninth month you...

I'm Interested In You. That Doesn't Mean I'm Trying To Have Sex With You.

Megan Bruneau | October 20, 2016 | Women
“I’ve been a part of this industry a long time, Megan. You haven’t. Yet you seem to be quite close to some very powerful people,” my male colleague told me over our twice-annual post-work cocktails. “It just doesn’t add up,” he continued. “And I really don’t know...

Yes, Hillary Said Abortion. You Go, Girl!

Ellen R. Shaffer | October 20, 2016 | Women
Ok, Chris Wallace said it first: WALLACE: Mr. Trump, you’re pro-life. But I want to ask you specifically: Do you want the court, including the justices that you will name, to overturn Roe v. Wade, which includes ― in fact, states ― a woman’s right to...

How Millennial Moms are Changing the World

Kelli Stuart | October 19, 2016 | Women
Make no mistake - creative mothers are leaving an impact. In a world that sometimes feels like it's burning at every turn, artistic mothers (spanning the generational gap) remind us that there's still beauty to be found in the every day.

Why Women's Voices Count in this Election

Mama Bean | October 19, 2016 | Women
As I kiss my sleeping daughter on the cheek, I notice how she's changing. Tucked up in her bed, she is no longer the baby I cradled or the toddler that I pushed on the swing. She is a young girl with a big voice and thankfully, she's not afraid to use it.

7 Ways to Find Hope Everyday

Michele Corvi | October 19, 2016 | Women
Tears well up when I watch my husband so lovingly hold a baby in his arms again. My seven-year-old son wants to carry her all day, every day in his little arms - a very proud, self-appointed protector of her well-being.

Dear Sexual Assault Guy: I Want To Be You

Abby Rodman, LICSW | October 20, 2016 | Women
Just for today, I want to be you. Come on, don't by shy. You know who you are -- you're the guy who violates women's bodies. Why do I want to be you today? Because I'm a woman and a therapist and there are things I need to know.

From Where I Stand: Nada Marković

Helping women heal from the scars of the conflict means giving them control over their lives. When you empower a woman economically, she can exercise her rights better, within her family, her community and in the world.

My Surname Used To Be Trump - Here's Why I Had To Change It

Dawn Kelly | October 19, 2016 | UK Politics
To say that I hate Donald Trump would be something of an understatement. Like lots of people, I am sick of hearing his bile and seeing his smug, plasticine face plastered over front-pages and television screens. Unlike most however, my reasons run a bit deeper... For 32 years, I shared the same name as him.
