19th amendment

Today marks the 19th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment, which guaranteed women the right to vote.

In the years leading up to the vote, women enjoyed only sporadic access to the vote, depending on where they lived; the 19th Amendment, then, created a blanket standard for all states,...

The Center for Medical Progress’ investigation into Planned Parenthood’s body parts-for-profit scandal has the pro-life community screaming for change, and the pro-choice community scrambling to circle the wagons before their entire system of “sexual freedom” and “fertility management” comes crashing down.

One prog-feminist website decided to take a different approach to...

White Feminism

Racial politics has not spared modern feminists.

The latest “intersectionality” social justice warrior campaign rails against “White Feminism.” That’s right, White Feminism. Because every single bit of life, society, and culture must now be parsed into political subsections…

As is typical in the Land of Social Justice, each attempt to fur...

carly fiorina chris wallas republican presidential primary 2016 run for president announce for president

“To me, a feminist is a woman who chooses her own life,” said presidential hopeful Carly Fiorina. “The life she chooses could be to have five children and stay home and home school them.”

In June, Fiorina wrote a powerful article called, “Redefining Feminism: The state of women in America.” Fiorina charted her career progress and addressed the deterioration of feminism over the years.

Feminism began as a rallying cry to empower women—to vote, to get an education, to enter the workplace. But over the years, feminism has devolved into a left-leaning political ideology where women are pitted against men and used as a political weapon to win elections.

Being empowered means having a voice. But ideological feminism shuts down conversation—on college campuses and in the media. If you are a man—or a woman—who doesn’t believe the litanies of the left, then you are “waging a war on women” or you are a “threat to women’s health” or you are variously described as “window dressing” —Joni Ernst—or offensive as a candidate—Carly Fiorina.

The progressive view of feminism is not about women. It is about ideology. And their policies are not working for women.

Mark Twain once wrote that “A lie can travel half way around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes.”

In the age of the internet, that saying should be updated to “three times around the world”, as is evidenced by the story behind the resignation of a British scientist.

Up until Wednesday night, I figured the push to have a woman’s mug gracing American currency was nothing more than internet fun. Apparently, this is a thing that’s actually happening.

His crime: Wearing a shirt that was deemed “anti-woman” by hyper-feminists.

feminists freak out over Jurassic World traditional gender roles

Last month we discussed feminist angst over summer blockbuster, Jurassic World. Evidently, the film’s traditional gender roles were another tool of the patriarchy to keep women in the kitchen… or something.

It should be noted that in an age where gender roles are a matter of choice, if one chooses to go...

Columbia Student Carrying Mattress Emma Sulkowicz

You probably remember Emma Sulkowicz, who carried her mattress around Columbia University to protest her alleged rapists presence on campus. Sulkowicz’s “Carry the Weight” project was an act of “performance art” (her term, not ours) that resulted in college credit.

Her alleged rapist, Paul Nungesser, was later cleared by Columbia and...

As the American press reports breathlessly on the #WarOnWomen in conjunction with Hillary Clinton’s Presidential Run Version 2.0, two of Professor Jacobson’s colleagues are battling to defend research showing that there may actually be a campus #WarOnMen.

A favorite assertion of campus-level feminist activists is that women in the sciences have a...

Leave it to feminists to be incensed over a dinosaur movie.

“Jurassic World” hits theaters June 12. Presumably a redux of “Jurassic Park,” but this time with one dude taking out dinosaurs instead of a motley crew of paleontologists, it’s a film I can’t wait to see on the silver screen....

Forget the fictitious but politically expedient ‘War on Women,’ masculinity is under attack. Men are maligned for not being more feminine in quality and character, and little boys are expected to forsake their natural curiosity, fervor, and active nature so as not to offend anyone with their rambunctiousness.
