The War on Women Never Ends!

As I dig out from my trip, I’m combing through piles of fundraising emails from the DNC. It is amazing how the absence of a woman on a single panel has been turned into the preface of the Handmaid’s Tale for these people. This email this morning is, roughly speaking, the umpteenth of it’s kind I’ve gotten:


Jonah –

What are Republicans so afraid of that they won’t even give women a seat at the table to discuss women’s issues?

ABC News Makes a Serious Mistake

Today, across Twitter, I began to see a number of people condemning the Trump administration (and Betsy DeVos, specifically) for imposing a new definition of sexual assault on campus so strict that it would force women to prove that they were so harassed that they'd been chased off campus and couldn't return. ...
