Don’t give Trump a moment to get comfortable. Let’s start fucking shit up as soon as he starts being sworn in.
This is the year the resistance takes shape. And for feminists looking for a roadmap, The Crunk Feminist Collection is the newly-printed guidebook that sets the path.
Here’s 16 women or groups of women who gave me and you and everyone we know some life in this, the darkest of years.
If there is anyone in your life currently in need of a truly empowering and also on-brand gift which to utilize to further the progress of our nation or look woke AF, it’s the feminist you know and love.
This election shook me to my core. That’s undeniable. I am still grieving and I don’t know that I ever won’t be. I am so fucking angry and I don’t know that I ever won’t be. But I refuse to be scared, or cowed, or defeated.
Hillary Clinton is not President of the United States.
A woman is gonna be president so soon! Get the fuck into it! And while you’re at it, vote for these queer and trans women.
These women are running for open seats in elections pitting them against Republicans or are fighting like hell to overthrow incumbent Republicans. That matters!
What does a female moderator actually do to shift discourse? What impact have they had? It turns out, looking at their stories and experiences, that gender still permeates the debates — and their ability to have an impact on the conversation.
I chatted with Lyn this week about the book, youth activism, and intergenerational activism. She had a lot of amazing things to say, spoiler alert.
This election has been shaped by Clinton’s campaign at least as much as Trump’s trainwreck of one. She’s aggressively capitalized on her gender by positioning it not as a side note, or even a historic anecdote waiting to happen, but instead as a tangible asset than shifts her ability to lead.
We’ve come far. But there’s a long way to the promised land, and if we’ve learned anything in Rio it’s that the literal century-old fight for women’s full inclusion in a historic event isn’t over yet.
“It really was an honor to be able to stand on that stage and, hopefully, help educate the country a little bit more about transgender equality. More than anything else, I wanted to reinforce the simple fact that transgender people are people, who hurt when they are mocked, who hurt when they are discriminated against, and who want to be treated with dignity and fairness.”
“Whereas some political systems are centered around equality of opportunity for women in politics — basically, the system we have in the US that (in theory) gives women the chance to run for office and be elected to office just like men, nothing different and nothing more — a growing number of nations and political parties have opted instead to make broader representation of women in their governments an explicit political goal using quota systems.”
In my last installment of Rebel Girls, I briefed you on some of the badass glass ceiling crashers currently serving in office who are queer as f*ck. These six women came before them.
There’s a whole lot of patriarchy left to shatter in this cruel world, including at every level of our government. And we need people to crash through glass ceilings in politics who aren’t just straight women.
Where does the GOP set the bar for what it considers “bigotry,” or sexism, or just plain offensive bullshit?
These memoirs, biographies, and autobiographies tell the stories of women who ran countries around the world — from the top.
The stories of 10 American women who fundamentally altered history simply by showing up and working like hell — in their own words.
When it comes to embodying the kind of toxic bullshit gender politics our culture has praised in men for eons, Donald Trump takes the cake.
