Why an Apology to Hillary Helps All Women

Hillary, long a lightning rod for sexist abuse, suffered horrid treatment from the male owned mainstream press, which warned all women: “Step up and you’ll get a taste of what she’s getting. We got a whole lotta more for ya, little lady”. The effects of big media’s disgraceful treatment of her in both her 2008 and 2016 presidential runs are still felt today. Why else...

Gratitude In Challenging Times

Having taken a powder from my own website for six months!! (horrors), I need to stop flogging myself about it and be kind, acknowledging that sometimes life intrudes, sometimes family illness intrudes. I’m grateful to say that my loved ones are better.  But there are also times when I have to look away, when the current media and political environment feels so toxic, I can’t...

Democrats and the Value of Debating Trump

Democrats and the Value of Debating Trump

Former Governor Chris Christie offered debating advice against Trump that a Huffington Post article says Democrats would do well to use. Christie says the guy “swings at every pitch” and can’t let anything go. So what? #Hillary wiped the floor with him in all three 2016 debates. Though she won the popular vote by nearly 3 million, he still got 62 million people to vote...

Hillary and My Promises for 2020

Recalling 2016’s media sabotage of Hillary Clinton–and acknowledging that she remains our most qualified candidate by far–makes our huge slate of 2020 candidates shine less by comparison. I’d be lying to pretend my lingering disgust doesn’t dampen my enthusiasm. Can that change? Absolutely. The debates start tonight–a first step in separating wheat from chaff.  I’m a lot more enthusiastic about Senators Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren,...

Kamala Harris and Women’s Fight for Equal Pay

Kamala Harris and Women’s Fight for Equal Pay

Senator Kamala Harris spoke with MSNBC’s Ari Melber last night pitching her plan to fine companies a part of their previous year’s profits if it is discovered they are not paying women equal wages as men for the same work. Is this plan likely a non-starter? Well, if those guilty companies and the six conglomerates in control of 90% of media in this country have...

The Electoral College Must Go

The Electoral College Must Go

While I’m far from deciding on a Democratic candidate, I agree with Senator Elizabeth Warren in her support for “getting rid of the electoral college,” and having the presidency decided by a national popular vote.  Per Matthew Dowd’s ABC NEWS article, Warren was “quickly attacked by many who think this is a “radical idea.” Yet that assessment is incorrect.  Per a new CBS News poll, about...

Respecting the Women on Whose Shoulders You Stand

Congresswoman Shirley Chisholm made history by running for president in 1972, becoming the first woman to win a non-binding presidential primary in New Jersey.  She said: “I’ve always met more discrimination being a woman than being black…” and “The emotional, sexual, and psychological stereotyping of females begins when the doctor says: “It’s a girl.” Shirley Chisholm was a trailblazer who made it easier for Senators...

Sexism Isn’t About THAT Woman—But ALL Women

Sexism Isn’t About THAT Woman—But ALL Women

Sexist attacks are daily lobbed at Kamala Harris, Nancy Pelosi, Elizabeth Warren, Kirsten Gillibrand and Amy Klobuchar over social media and, of course, by the pundit class on mainstream media. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi spanked Trump hard on his horrid shutdown, reminding us how fierce she is at holding together her Parties’ coalition, rendering foolish anyone who called for “new blood” in opposing her return...

Hey Tucker Carlson: My Mom is a Hero, Not an Emasculator

Hey Tucker Carlson: My Mom is a Hero, Not an Emasculator

It’s not that FOX News’ Tucker Carlson is worth listening to or respecting, yet his comments about ‘women’s advancement harming society’ must be addressed; his poison countered.  Too many men, and women for that matter, still buy into straitjacketed gender roles that are no longer realistic, and in many cases, not desirable, in today’s society. His brand of “stinkin’ thinkin’” is part of why Senator...
