Why Is It Hillary’s Job to Make Nice?

Hillary Clinton received the usual smack talk from beltway press for her choice to echo her winning 2000 Senate run by making her 2016 Presidential campaign a “listening tour,” eschewing huge rallies in favor of more intimate grass root gatherings . Given that she is 90 delegates away from being the first woman in history to be a major Party’s standard bearer, her campaign, a...

Hillary, a Lifelong Champion for Women and Families

Having published an article reminding mainstream media of Hillary Clinton’s historic win at the Iowa caucus, I hit a nerve as many women and fair minded men shared the piece, fighting back against an elite punditry who attempted to spin away her accomplishment. I was shocked to also get responses from young women who had no idea of Hillary’s lifetime of work on their behalf....

Playing False with Planned Parenthood is Damaging Republicans

Republicans have chosen to double down on defunding Planned Parenthood, even by shutting down government, if necessary. But is their crusade yielding the desired result? Presidential candidate Carly Fiorina just found out the hard way that, as media strategist Shawna Vercher put it, “Lying matters more to people than anyone thought.” Author and commentator Anita Finlay agreed, stating that “Fiorina has been caught lying about...

Women Scientists Turn the Tables on a Sexist Nobel Prize Winner

When Nobel winning scientist Sir Tim Hunt showed up at a conference in Seoul and made the now infamous remarks that “when you have women in the lab, three things happen: you fall in love with them, they fall in love with you and when you criticize them, they cry,” he didn’t imagine his life would be turned upside down as a result. 16 women...

Feminism is Not the “F” Word: An Interview with Jennifer Hall Lee

Feminism is not the “F” word and feminists should not be stereotyped as the ball-busting, bearded, Birkenstock wearing sisterhood!  Disabusing wrong-headed notions about feminism is vital in understanding its benefits to society as well as the opportunities now available to women as a result. In a special edition of Dare We Say, I had an opportunity to interview award-winning filmmaker Jennifer Hall Lee, who reminds...

Can a Man Ever Have a Bad Hair Day?

Every day, women have to budget extra time just to negotiate the “female uniform.” In our latest episode of Dare We Say, I confess my daily “hair hell” with the curling iron and various and sundry accountrements before walking out of the house. Listen, there’s no such thing as a man with a bad hair day! My co-host, Shawna Vercher, tells me that when she’s...

Did Carly Fiorina Negate the Reason for Her Presidential Run?

Carly Fiorina claims her presidential candidacy offers the unique perk that she can stop Hillary Clinton from playing the “gender card.” Yet in an interview with The Hill, Fiorina defended her “rocky tenure” as CEO of HP by agreeing that ‘underlying sexism contributed to her firing.’ She said, “There’s no question that women in positions of authority are scrutinized differently, criticized differently and characterized different.”...

Do TV Stereotypes Hurt Women?

In her latest column, The New York Times’ Maureen Dowd wrote: “Good Riddance Carrie Jamieson,” bidding a snarky farewell to Claire Danes’ character on the popular Showtime series “Homeland.” She’s not leaving the show – just the CIA. Notes Dowd, the CIA sisterhood is celebrating this since they are offended by her somewhat off-the-wall behavior. As author and actress Anita Finlay stated, “No woman who...
