I have written books for women and produced videos and a blog specifically geared toward women. I talk to and teach women about money all over the country. But there is something about the latest surge in the female empowerment movement — and how it’s been taking shape ever since President Donald Trump was elected — that doesn’t sit well with me. Just hear me out. Take the Women’s March on Washington. Follow Motto on Facebook.
In the last few months, there has been an overwhelming sense of good lady juju all around. I’ve been ignored, dismissed and even cussed out by women who publicly claim to be “girl’s girls,” just as I do. Later, I always wonder if I didn’t do a good enough job of breaking down the big plans I’ve made with a fellow female boss into the specific steps needed to get there.

Previously, we have ranked the following items by lesbianism: Law & Order characters, Emojis, First Names.

Men On Reddit Share Their Best Tips For Becoming A Better Man. Can This Indian Detergent Ad Change The Way We Talk About Gender Equity? By Ruchika Tulshyan Growing up in a South Asian household in Singapore, I never saw my father get up to grab his own glass of water.
It was my mother’s “job” to serve him. He would always eat dinner first, and then when he was done, my mother would sit down for her meal. My father would proudly proclaim that he had no idea where anything was in the kitchen, and that he couldn’t even boil an egg. I observed this same dynamic, time and again, in the homes of my friends and other family members. Nearly three decades later, not much has changed. I considered myself a feminist as a child, and have lived independently in various parts of the Western world. How We Talk About Women And Sex – The Establishment. By Chelsea Cristene In February, I wrote a piece on having been raised by a sex-positive mother.
It was a topic that had been stirring in the back of my mind for a while, as my mom’s parenting style largely cemented my belief that open communication about sex, relationships, and reproductive health is crucial among families and in schools. One of the many reasons I’m glad I was brought up with a sex-positive outlook is that I developed a clear sense of sexual agency and bodily autonomy. Or, as Emily Heist Moss worded it, I grew up with the understanding that “expressing sexuality is not the same as being sexualized.” As the male gaze continues to pervade everything from music to advertising, we must reframe the choices that girls and women make as their own and not “for” their male counterparts. Much of this, in my view, has to do with the language we use to reference women’s sexuality. What A Sex Worker Can Teach You About Working For Yourself.

Former ISIS Sex Slave Nadia Murad Tells Her Story of Survival to Gloria Steinem. In 2014, Nadia Murad's Yazidi village in northern Iraq was attacked by ISIS.
The jihadist group proceeded to carry out a genocide of her people, who have long been persecuted for their non-Islamic faith. Members of Murad's family were killed and she, along with thousands of other women and girls, were abducted and enslaved, enduring extreme physical and sexual violence. After managing to escape, Murad is now a human rights activist, UN Goodwill Ambassador, and Noble Peace Prize nominee, bringing attention to the atrocities committed against the Yazidi. Last year, Nadia began working with Amal Clooney to build a legal case against ISIS commanders for their crimes. Gloria Steinem sat down with her to listen to her story.

Because five years on from the UK's last lesbian-centric TV series (RIP, Lip Service), we're still perpetually desperate for credible primetime portrayals of ourselves on the small screen. This is despite living in a period in which queer female characters are more visible than ever – in soaps (Eastenders; Coronations Street), sci-fi (Dr Who), tea-time dramas (Call the Midwife) and popular imports (Wentworth; The Good Wife).
Right now, we're kind-of here, and kind-of queer, but rarely for long enough or in any meaningful capacity. Women's News. Feminized. Debunking The Myth That Eating Disorders Are A White Woman Problem. Eating disorders aren’t just a white woman problem — and it’s dangerous to assume they are.
