As Samantha Bee observes, Ivanka’s press clippings suggest she is lobbying her loony dad for sanity and decency. But the Full Frontal host warns liberals against fantasizing that Ivanka, nominated to the Great Feminists in Feminism Herstory Hall of Lady Fame, is their “secret progressive buddy.”

When I was young, I was taught that liberals and Democrats were brainwashed and trained to ignore the truths about what was really going on in America. Arguing with a liberal was a complete waste of time, my dad would say. No child should be taught that the only options in this life are to “hate or be hated.”
Hillary Clinton is poised to ascend to the presidency, and those men made queasy by the notion of a woman in the nation’s top job may take comfort in the fact that, just like they do, she puts her trousers on one leg at a time.
The first woman ran for president in 1872, before women even had the right to vote. Since then, dozens have run but until Clinton none has gotten far. Clinton in 2008 became the first female candidate to vie seriously for the White House.
The most prominent woman to emerge from the women’s movement in America is Hillary Rodham Clinton, yet, because of her stature as a historic figure and the events that made her one, she is often misunderstood, especially on the issue of gender politics.
Two women? Could voters possibly be progressive enough to support such an estrogen-heavy ticket? Some turned the question around: Who second-guesses a ticket with two men? Nobody, because we’ve been doing it that way for centuries. But sexism is a fact of American politics.
The Senate on Tuesday passed an amendment to the defense budget requiring women to register for the draft, but that didn’t stop some Republicans from exposing perhaps a bit too much of their own biases about women’s “place” in society.
We should show more understanding toward those who are disappointed, the critics said. We should not “rub it in.” We were “gloating.” We were “insensitive.” We should be “more gracious.” I leaned back from my computer in the wee hours of Wednesday morning and thought, “Why does this feel so familiar?”
Given that most don’t know Clinton personally, and that her authenticity persists as an issue, she may do what doesn’t come naturally for a Midwestern Methodist. Let down her perfect hair and her high walls with the American people.
I support Clinton for a long list of reasons. The Sanders bullies say that makes me part of the “establishment.” I wish my working-class parents had lived long enough to hear that. How they would have howled. There was a time when I got worked up over those voices of superiority telling me who I am because I don’t want what they do. I couldn’t care less now.
The magazine Discovery Girls pitches itself as a publication that aims to help empower girls from ages 8 to 12. Much of the time, judging by its website, it manages to do just that. In the latest issue, though, the magazine offered to help its young readers discover their inner critics with a two-page illustrated spread on how to pick a swimsuit that best flatters their bodies.
Rep. Hunter is banking on a strategy that’s been thrown into the path of women for generations. It’s the one that coos to women that they don’t really want to be treated equally, that they don’t really want to be afforded the same opportunities as men. He expects that women will shrink and run when actually confronted with the demands of combat.
According to a report released in April by the Joint Economic Committee (JEC), based on median annual earnings, a woman, working full time, year-round, will lose nearly $500,000 over a career, due to gender pay gaps.
Wilson’s shameful record on race is now under serious scrutiny at his alma mater, Princeton University. Yet little has been said on Wilson’s fierce opposition to women as equal citizens, even as the suffrage movement’s winds blew outside his Oval Office.
One lucky lady — yet to be chosen — will become the first woman in more than a century to join an esteemed coterie of dead presidents and statesmen featured on American paper currency.
I was warned not to see the new film ‘Mad Max: Fury Road.’ I was told it was emasculating feminist propaganda disguised as an explosion-filled action flick.
‘Headstrong: 52 Women Who Changed Science — and the World’ is a remarkable new book by Rachel Swaby: fascinating, compulsively readable, and illuminative.
The safety net has become a sieve, Caroline Fredrickson writes, in her new book ‘Under The Bus,’ about how workers’ rights continue to elude working women.
