As his weapon, Trump used the same creepy sexual domination he used to stalk Hillary Clinton during a televised debate to which he had invited women with whom her husband had had sexual relationships.
Donald Trump spends more time pushing boundaries than attending to affairs of state. That ranges from sublime efforts to erase what passes for etiquette on social media to the more consequential, such as badgering the white men who almost exclusively comprise Trump’s GOP in Congress and the Cabinet. They cower shamelessly as their lord and master bellows new orders.
This might seem like just another Trump scandal, another horrible person he’s put into power, but it’s so much more than that.
A federal judge on Wednesday blocked Ohio from enforcing a new law that critics said would effectively ban most abortions in the state, starting as early as six weeks into pregnancy.
World leaders are failing 1.4 billion girls and women on promises of a fairer future, according to a global index launched at the world's biggest gender equality conference.
Among Britons, Trump is one of the least-liked foreign leaders, with just 21% of people surveyed by YouGov having a positive opinion of him. Among women, that figure fell to 14%.
The very secret, “'strictly OFF-THE-RECORD' and not to be printed or reproduced by/for media" document was produced by the Republican Study Committee to offer “messaging guidance” on the Republican Party's "pro-life platform."
U.S. abortion-rights campaigners, including several Democrats running for president in 2020, are set to rally in front of the Supreme Court on Tuesday to protest new restrictions on abortion passed by legislatures in eight states.
In what might be seen as a dismissively antagonistic stance, Republican Alabama Governor Kay Ivey said she doesn't think the abortion ban that has no exception for rape or incest, which she just signed into law, will hurt tourism or business recruitment.
The lower house of the Missouri General Assembly passed a bill on Friday to prohibit women from seeking an abortion after the eighth week of pregnancy, days after Alabama enacted the most restrictive abortion law in the United States.
Republicans are very busy running away from Alabama's tough abortion law, even though they not only enabled this exact situation by stealing a Supreme Court seat from President Obama and then installing two exceptionally far-right extremists to the bench but also, their platform insists on personhood for a fetus.
Anti-abortion advocacy groups have pushed hard in recent months for the passage of bills to restrict or even ban the procedure outright at the state level, inspired by the perception that the U.S. Supreme Court has tilted in their favor.
The bills, along with similar measures proposed in more than a dozen other states, are the latest effort by conservatives to challenge Roe v. Wade, the landmark U.S. Supreme Court decision from 1973 establishing a woman's right to terminate her pregnancy.
Celebrities revealed their abortion stories and ordinary Americans stood up to be counted as a backlash against tough new U.S. abortion laws gathered pace on Thursday and a social media campaign went viral.
Stand up for women like you stand up for any other cause: We are real, we are right here, and we are in a crisis heretofore unseen.
Georgia's Republican governor on Tuesday is expected to sign a bill outlawing abortion if a doctor can detect a fetal heartbeat, part of a concerted effort to restrict abortion rights in states across the country.
Actress and activist Patricia Arquette argued for the ERA on Tuesday, saying women do not have equal protection under the law and laying bare with chilling examples how women today are often treated as sub-humans in America and do not have the same value as men.
Activists on both sides of the issue say such laws, which are commonly blocked by court injunctions, are aimed at getting a case sent to the U.S. Supreme Court, where conservatives hold a 5-4 majority, to challenge Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 decision that established a constitutional right to abortion.
Women and enlightened men know misogyny is baked into the media’s coverage of presidential elections. While Trump’s 2016 win was the result of a combination of forces, one of those forces was media bias.
That isn’t merely the opinion of this writer; there is data proving Trump got preferential treatment, be it from the volume of newspaper articles and live streaming of his campaign events to giving him free passes when he incited hatred and violence or when he just told ordinary lies.
It's happening again.
The media is paving the way for Donald Trump to win 2020 with lazy, or perhaps purposeful, false equivalencies aimed at the top Democratic possible for 2020.
