There were movie stars and supermodels, TV hosts and pop stars.
But perhaps the most rapturous ovation at Glamour magazine’s annual Women of the Year awards went to 79-year-old Democratic U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters of California, who delighted the crowd — including hundreds of cheering young girls — with a rousing speech that ended on a very political note. “Impeach him,” she exhorted the audience. “Impeach 45! Impeach 45!”

Feminist Professor Proud of Her Efforts To Combat ‘Feminist Fatigue’
Communications professor Katherine Cruger recently published an article on employing a “feminist pedagogy” teaching technique in her classes, describing it as a necessary response to students’ waning attention to feminist concerns.
Many of her students, Cruger has noticed, “seem to be experiencing a kind of feminism fatigue,” and are “wary to admit that they could ever suffer at the hands (or be the instrument) of imperialist white-supremacist capitalist patriarchy.”
Ninety-seven years after being granted the right to vote, women now threaten the stability—indeed the very possibility—of the democratic experiment itself. Consider, for example, Michelle Obama’s recent cant about women “voting against their own voice.” For her, voting women are all one side: against men, of whom President Trump, the terrible patriarch, is the representative. The former first lady’s point of view echoes that of a previous one: the tragicomic Hillary Clinton, who, like a vampire, will never go away, alas.
A popular Instagram account that promoted a militant form of feminism was actually run by Russian operatives, who successfully fooled Women’s March organizers into sharing their content.
The account, which operated under the handle @feminism_tag on Instagram, had tens of thousands of followers.
The “victimhood narrative” that is being taught at schools and universities is fuelling anxiety in young women, an academic has argued in her new book.
Doctrines of “everyday sexism” are “rape culture” are having a “debilitating” effect on girls’ confidence, according to Dr Joanna Williams, a lecturer in higher education at Kent University.
Institutions which should be promoting women’s rights – such as schools, universities and feminist campaigners – are now doing more harm than good, she argues.
Mahroh Jahangiri, an editor at Feministing.com, recently published an article in which she claims Zionism is a system “built to uphold white supremacy”
From hard-lefties like Black Panthers and the ‘Dirtbag Left’ to liberals named Clinton and Kennedy and Weinstein, the long line of men who talk one way but behave another.
Thankfully, Harvey Weinstein’s political allies aren’t falling for his shtick of promising to repent and to “channel [his] anger” toward Wayne LaPierre and the NRA. Over the past two weeks, he has been ritually denounced by practically every entertainment industry collaborator and political beneficiary he collected over a remarkable three-decade career in pictures and politics.
Yet Weinstein is just the latest in a long line of men whose left-wing politics coexisted harmoniously with retrograde attitudes about women.
It demands a culture of restraint while tearing down morality and modesty.
In the wake of the Weinstein scandal, the commissars of feminism are policing ideological infractions with increased vigor. Several women in the entertainment industry have had to apologize abjectly to the commissars for daring to suggest that women seek protection from a salacious, pawing Hollywood culture by not participating in it.
“Big Bang Theory’s Mayim Bialik Publishes Irresponsible Essay On Sexism In Hollywood,” ran a headline in Newsweek, capturing this atmosphere. Bialik had merely allowed herself a brief aside in the New York Times reflecting on the prudence of modesty in an industry of creeps…
Of all the citizen-driven movements of our time, feminism has proven the most successful. Through argument and passion, feminists have made serious changes. In equal-pay legislation, marital rights, education, politics and the professions, women are better off. They have even erased, in many places, entrenched anti-woman prejudices that seemed unshakeable only a few decades ago.
But on one subject feminists have failed completely. They have remained silent on the brutal reality of women in Islamic countries.
Not exactly news in these parts…
These law-school faculty prove the Left has become so Puritanical and rigid that any positive reflection on the post-war period is immediately ‘racist.’ This isn’t history—it’s religion.
Thirty-three professors at the University of Pennsylvania’s Law School have lost their minds in response to their colleague Amy Wax, who published a piece stating something apparently atrocious: Culture matters for human flourishing.
In response to this simple claim, the university erupted in petitions, condemnation, and a spluttering of essays that accomplish very little apart from signaling leftward piety (here, here, here, and here). These precious articles represent the academy’s bad-faith efforts to traduce one of few un-silent conservatives on campus, symptomatic of the intellectual dilapidation in the modern academy.
Poor “Maddie” got roasted when she asked her “moms group” for new lunch ideas for her husband.
