Chris Matthews, Resigning At Last

Now Chris Matthews in finally resigning after his 23 years of sexist and otherwise inappropriate comments? This is also a man who stated that the purpose of cable TV “news” is for people to reinforce their own already held opinions, even if they’re wrongheaded – and they often were and are. Per ABC News: “Matthews came under fire in recent days for comparing U.S. Sen....

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...

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...

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

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...

Fighting for Women’s Rights at the Voting Booth

GOP efforts to ram through Brett Kavanaugh’s  lifetime Supreme Court appointment while hiding vital information about him from the public showcases not only the urgency of overturning one-party rule, but the need to elect more Progressive women to office.  Women’s rights in particular will be affected if Kavanaugh is confirmed and, as predicted, pushes the Supreme Court further right, likely overturning Roe v. Wade.  That...

Women Candidates Are Stronger When They Fight Sexism

In Jonathan Chait’s New York Intelligencer article cautioning women “not to play the victim card” when running as 2020 presidential candidates, doesn’t he see that a man telling a woman how she should present herself to the American people is in itself sexist? Why does he get to instruct her?  What white male has ever had to deal with gender issues on the national stage? ...

Misogynists Shape the Narratives that Keep Women from Power

The New York Times’ Glenn Thrush and The Young Turks’ Cenk Uyger are the two latest “journalists” to be hoist on the petard of their own misogyny. As has been pointed out elsewhere, if you want to know why Hillary Clinton got such crap coverage in 2016, and in 2008 for that matter, you need look no further than the men who shape the “news”...

Kamala Harris Gets Hillary’d

When speaking of Hillary Clinton, anyone who ever bought or sold the line: “I’d vote for any woman just not THAT woman” can now put that twaddle in the dustbin where it belongs. This week, we saw accomplished career prosecutor, former California AG, US Senator and Democratic rising star Kamala Harris shushed by several of her male colleagues when questioning both AG Jeff Sessions and...

#TheResistance, Hillary and Onward Together

If the speed with which the #TrumpRussia investigation snowballs is in inverse proportion to the disaster the Trump White House can inflict upon our nation, it will only be due to #TheResistance movement.  Many polls report that women account for 80% of #TheResistance with Washington Post noting: “The women’s march was the largest protest in U.S. history.” Women are used to spearheading (and doing a...
