Obama’s transgender bathroom mandate has created strange bedfellows. Some feminists have apparently figured out that if men can simply claim to be women, it takes power away from women. Imagine that.

Kara Dansky of the Women’s Liberation Front or (WoLF), appeared on Tucker Carlson’s show Tuesday night to address the issue.

If there’s a sure bet to be made, it’s that progressivism will inevitably eat itself.

Such is the case in the simmering conflict between transgender issues and Women’s Studies departments.

Ayaan Hirsi Ali appeared on FOX News Wednesday night and was asked by host Martha MacCallum for her response to Women’s March organizer Linda Sarsour.

Sarsour posted a positively vile message against Hirsi Ali on Twitter last week in which she suggested Hirsi Ali and Brigitte Gabriel, another outspoken critic of Sharia...

Linda Sarsour was co-chair of the Women’s March, even though she was not one of the founders.

Predictably, the “grassroots” and “spontaneous” women’s march wasn’t so grassroots, after all.  It may have started as such, but things changed rather quickly.  Ultimately, more than 50 groups, PACs, and assorted organizations backed by billionaire agitator George Soros were deeply involved in the march.

Tucker Carlson interviewed a woman who runs some feminist group that is pro-life because she and her group were dropped from today’s “Women’s March” due to their pro-life stance. Oddly, they were going there to protest Trump, in the spirit of the “Women’s March” protest, but disliking Trump and being a...

Tension between old-school white liberal feminists and those who want to include racial identity politics in the movement is something we have written about for years, including in this 2014 post, #WhiteWomanPrivilege meets Festivus: The airing of bitter intra-feminist racial grievances:

There has been much bellyaching by liberal white women that 53% of us voted for Donald Trump in November presidential election.
