Maddie and Tae Show Us How To Fly!

Teen sensations Maddie and Tae scored a #1 single last year with their brilliant, funny and feminist “Girl In A Country Song.” Their new single, “Fly” is so lovely, the tears were rolling before I heard half the lyrics. “Fly” is a sweet anthem of encouragement in challenging times.  If you’re taking on something new that has you freaked or if the day’s struggle just...

CNN’s chief Washington correspondent Jake Tapper penned a blistering editorial chastising President Obama, Secretary of State Kerry, Attorney General Holder and other senior White House officials for their absence from last Sunday’s Unity rally in Paris.  The White House has admitted that their lack of attendance was a mistake and apologized repeatedly, which did nothing to assuage Jake Tapper’s disappointment at our lack of participation....

Golden Globes Find Their Humanity

Forget the glitz of the Golden Globes. What emerged from Sunday’s telecast were some moving moments dedicated to diversity, community and unity. Led by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, this was not business as usual. Jerry Doyle and I discuss a few of the best moments, where those winning awards offered reminders that acceptance of those different than ourselves matters. As an aside, it was...

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler Kick Ass at the Golden Globes

    Tina Fey and Amy Poehler skewered power players and stereotypes alike in their swan song as Golden Globe hosts Sunday evening.  They killed in their opening monologue, a biting soufflé that was as droll as it was unsparing. They ripped SONY: Fey: “Tonight we celebrate all the television shows we know and love …and all the movies that North Korea was okay with.”...

Phylicia Rashad’s Defiant Defense of Bill Cosby

How many women does it take to equal the weight of one man? To date, two dozen women have publically accused Bill Cosby of sexual assault with the allegations spanning a 40-year period.

Kaley Cuoco’s “I’m Not a Feminist” Comments: Why the Backlash Matters

By now, Big Bang Theory actress Kaley Cuoco’s comments that she is not a feminist have gone viral.  The online backlash was so fierce that Cuoco has walked back her original statements.  Pundits who miss no opportunity to perpetuate feminism’s negative branding have chastised those who criticized Ms. Cuoco for daring to part from “the tribe.”  Yet finger-pointing is less important than understanding both what...

What’s Being Done In Our Name?

The Senate’s CIA “torture” report has elicited little more than a collective shrug from the American people, if our most prominent news sources are to be believed.  I thought perhaps Americans are so stressed in their own lives, and beaten down by the endless scandal-mongering inherent in the 24-hour news cycle, they don’t want the responsibility of one more pound of weight.  Yet, according to...

MBA’s New Feminist Anthem?

Columbia Business School Follies MBA students’ just produced a women’s anthem of sorts about being a “bitch in business.” Their video has gone viral and turns the tables on the “Wolf of Wall Street” attitudes that men have long been rewarded for. Will it make some uncomfortable? Yup. Did its crudeness make me uncomfortable? Some. But that’s the point. A man in business would never...
