Just look at all that's happened in the last two days to women who were simply doing their jobs. April Ryan, a respected journalist, with unrivaled integrity, was doing her job just this afternoon in the White House press room when she was patronized and cut off trying to ask a question. One of your own California Congresswomen, Maxine Waters, was taunted with a racist joke about her hair.”.

The bigger picture is that students shouldn't have to go to court. That's the purpose of

Natacha Henry

Madame Macron's age is a feminist issue here. I was at the hairdresser's at a very small town in Orléans the day he was appointed minister of economy, and all the ladies were so happy she was so much older than him. We're so fed up with these older guys with young

Rod Dreher

Do you see 'racism, sexism, and other forms of bigotry' in Griffiths's message to his colleagues? Of course not, because it is not there!feedback

Elaine Heath

It is inappropriate and unprofessional to use mass emails to make disparaging statements – including arguments ad hominem – in order to humiliate or undermine individual colleagues or groups of colleagues with whom we disagree. The use of mass emails to express racism, sexism and other forms of bigotry is offensive and unacceptable, especially in a Christian

Jessica Grose

You never hear anyone say it out loud, but the unfortunate gerund “adulting” is everywhere. Peculiar to social media, it’s a term that seems to be wielded most frequently by young women — and the pastel-bedecked brands wooing them — to signify the completion of quotidian grown-up tasks like doing laundry, going to work, exercising and [].feedback

Richard Prum

If you say anything about a feminist science, you get a lot of negative blowback immediately. But this isn't a science that accommodates itself to feminist principles. It's about the discovery of feminist concepts in biology

Richard Prum

It's a sad thing that, given the promise of evolutionary biology, we've really failed to lead culture in any meaningful way, whether in thinking about racism, sexism, or economic disparity. We're just hanging at the rear end. And there's a real prospect for that to change because of all the power of evolutionary theory to be relevant to people and people's

Mireille Escarrat

The FN is xenophobic, racist and anti-feminist. For me it feels like the 1930s. We're going

Lisen Stromberg

Right now, the tech sector is claiming to have a pipeline problem, saying that they don't have enough women applying or qualified, and then the jobs go to foreign men. Could tech jobs become more inclusive for women because they're forced to find talent? I think so, given that I am confident and clear that this is a hiring issue, and one that is rooted in sexism, rather than this being an issue of too few

Stephen Colbert

Asking Hillary Clinton if sexism exists is like asking Serena Williams if she's heard about this tennis thing. Actually, you can make up whatever you want. Have you met our current president? He's like Stephen

Barbra Streisand

There were a lot of older people. They don't want to see a woman director. I don't know how many women wanted to see a woman director. None of [the female critics] talked about what the movie was trying to say. It was not about what the movie was about – a celebration of women and all they could be. I must have been more hurt than I thought, because I didn't want to direct for years. Not enough women are directing now. I love when I see a woman's name on the film, and then I want to see it be

Jill Filipovic

Women today, live in a world of unfinished feminism, where we're told we're equal but see our basic rights up for grabs, where we're told to just push harder at work, or recognize we can't have it all, or marry Mr. Good Enough. No one, has ever suggested it is her right to be

If we focus on what makes women's lives happier, healthier, better, more fulfilling, and more pleasurable, many other progressive goals will naturally follow, and we will have a new language with which to frame and advocate for issues of fundamental fairness and

Angela Merkel

To be honest the history of feminism is one with which I have common ground but also differences, and I don't want to claim a title I don't have. For example, Alice Schwarzer [a famous German second-wave feminist who helped make abortion legal ] or someone like that, they have fought so many hard battles, and then I come along seizing on their success and say I am a feminist. That's great isn't it. I am not afraid of [the label]. If you think that I am one - please, go ahead and have a vote over it, but I personally wouldn't want to wear the

Lena Dunham

We really wanted to try to be a part of, in our own small way, healing the very big divide that exists in our country right now. We're trying to look beyond the coastal states and really think about connecting to women, to people, in the middle of the

Serena Williams

It disappoints me to know we live in a society where people like Ilie Nastase can make such racist comments towards myself and unborn child, and sexist comments against my peers. I have said it once and I'll say it again, this world has come so far but yet we have so much further to go... I am not afraid unlike you. You see, I am no coward. Does my sassiness upset you? Why are you beset with gloom? You may shoot me with your words... you may try to kill me with your hatefulness, but still like air I

Lena Dunham

It's political, but we're also trying to bring up issues that you can't really argue with. For example, a portion of our proceeds are going toward arts education organizations for girls in every city. People have a lot of really split opinions on social politics, but you basically have to be a mustache-twirling villain to have a problem with girls receiving arts education. It's all about trying to expand the way that women can have access to information that cracks their brains open. Jenni's and my entire ethos is really built around relationships between

Jenni Konner

It's been a very strange week. I'm not going to lie to you. But it's really nice after all these years of, you know, being pretty divisive, that the general consensus has been pretty positive, and that's made us feel really

I'm going to gracefully bow out of the last controversy hopefully we will ever have about 'Girls'. I won't even dignify it.

Elisabeth Moss

Honestly, for me, it's not a feminist story. It's a human story because women's rights are human rights. I never intended to play Peggy as a feminist; I never intended to play Offred as a feminist. They're women and they are humans. Offred's a wife, a mother, a best friend. She has a job, and she is a person who is not supposed to be a hero she falls into it and she kind of does what she has to do to survive to find her daughter. It's about love, honestly, so much of this story. For me, I never approach anything with any sort of political agenda. I approach it from a very human place, I

Sophie Walker

Philip Davies basically is a sexist misogynist who puts his own ego ahead of his constituents. His anti-equality agenda in Westminster threatens the rights and freedoms not just of women but also people with disabilities, BAME (black, Asian, and minority ethnic) and LGBT+ communities. I think that Shipley deserves an MP who will prioritise representing them and the issues that are important to their constituency, rather than using parliament as a stage to play out attention-seeking

Caroline Heldman

The first time I met him, one of the first things, if not the first thing, out of his mouth was to the effect of, When I was in college, professors didn't look like you,' . That kind of set the tone of his, I would call it, sexist humiliation and bullying which was pretty typical for him. My upward trajectory slowed considerably. I continued to do other shows but being blacklisted from Bill O'Reilly's show is a big

Caroline Heldman

I think that there's still a very real fear that it will have negative repercussions for our careers. I think that even when we're believed, which I think a lot of people are, we're predisposed to blame the victim rather than believe them. We're still seen as troublemakers. The mood is somber for all the good men and women at Fox who are being tainted for this scandal. Bill O'Reilly's behavior has stained

Nicola Thorp

It's a shame they won't change legislation. It shouldn't be down to people like myself … I do think it is a little bit of a cop-out. As it stands, the Equality Act states an employer has the right to distinguish between a male and female dress code as long as they are not deemed to be treating one sex more or less favourably. Unfortunately, because of intrinsic sexism and the way in which business works in the UK, when employers are allowed the freedom to decide what is fair and unfair it tends to be women that lose

Melvin Moy

It's what my faith calls me to do. The reality is the more we talk, the more commonality we're going to find and the more we humanize each other, which is so important. I'm not saying you excuse racism or sexism, but by talking to people, that's how you break those barriers

Like I'm going to do right now, I broke into tears because, to me, that's what's most important is to raise really kind girls – and I'm so happy my girls are

Gary Bongiovanni

I don't see that there's any sexism. There's nothing more than trying to put together a bill of artists that the public wants to see. And we live in a world where a significant majority of the acts are either male or male-fronted bands versus females or female-fronted

Rachel Holmes

Although it is right to commemorate outside Parliament the fight for women’s votes, the choice of person is an act of historical airbrushing. There are rather too many statues in Britain, and for the most part they honour individuals more than the movements and values they were meant to represent. They can sentimentalise the past by setting it in stone or bronze. As a biographer, I prefer to rake over the past so that we might learn from it – and be better equipped to deal with the present and

Let me go. Let me move on. I'm deeply hurt by what has happened, I'm disappointed in what has happened. But if this is the way that it is, let's just part ways, cleanly. It's my job, this is my life. Without that, I feel lost. ... I don't consider myself a feminist. But boy, I won't lay down and play dead,

Films and books teach children that boys are stronger and better. But parents are realising that daughters need adventures too. According to a study published recently in the American periodical Science, by the time they are six years old, girls already think that they are less capable than boys. At school it is girls who on average achieve more highly, and yet from the very first year of primary school they assume that boys are better than

Polly Neate

The ingrained sexism at the heart of Mr Moyes' remark represents something much darker; it is a cornerstone of a culture that condones violence against women. But the power and platform of football can be part of the solution to ending violence against women. We urge the FA to act swiftly and take this opportunity to send out a clear and strong message to the footballing community – fans, clubs and players – that there is no place for sexism and misogyny in modern

Clare Phillipson

We've had Adam Johnson and now we've got this. Clearly people intended it to not go public, that it would all be kept behind closed doors – again – and not dealt with. They were clearly hoping to avoid any public scrutiny. They're a business and they're trying to keep it running, and it's a very important part of the local economy, but if their business model involves rampant sexism then they're going to be turning off a fair number of paying

Arturo Carmona

There were definitely some entrenched issues around sexism in the broader campaign. There's no question that sexism exists in our society. I have worked to be an ally all my life, and all my career.

Some people told us they felt uncomfortable about mentioning that they pray. Or we heard of people feeling upset that religion was the butt of jokes in a workplace where people have become much more aware about making disparaging comments about gender or disability.

The left must learn that moral outrage will never win an argument. It took but a quick click, but even as I joined the collective expression of disgust on social media at last week’s Daily Mail “Legs-it” front page I felt a bit sheepish.

She was very anti-Nazi. Which isolated anyone in the Nazi time. And not just then. You must know that also after 1945 it was not fashionable to be anti-Nazi and that – as my grandmother could attest – the Nazis all still sat at their posts, in City Hall, everywhere. She was an eco-activist already in the 1950s and campaigned for animal rights. I don't know where she got it from, but she was proved right. She was a very sharp political thinker. Then I went out into the world, and it was different. Perhaps that's also what enrages

This United Airlines policy – whether intentional or not – is sexist and sexualizes young girls. As a woman and a mother, I was uncomfortable and angered by what unfolded at the Denver airport. I saw young girls confronted head-on with the disturbing reality that everyone – even an airline gate agent – is scrutinizing your body at all times. That what you were wearing for your vacation travel sent a message to someone that you were not appropriate, and that in order to participate in society, you are literally going to have to change. Even if you're only 10 years

There are thousands of amazing people at the company and I truly wish everyone well.

I'm not interested in that, don't want to do it...there just seems to be a desire for stuff about the Royal Family, stuff from the past, which is understandable, but it just makes it slim pickings for people of colour.

I quite enjoy it, it's nice, we're just a very happy team. It's very familiar and we are just one happy family. We know looking in the dictionary that girl means a young woman only up to the age of 11 or 12. It's diminishing and demeaning to refer to women who are older than 12 as a child, really. These are working women who are doing a job and have a

Far from being in a 'propitious' position, any analysis of senior leadership roles in business will show the woeful under-representation of women and minority groups. Women, and especially BME women, are a long way from endangering men's dominance of boardrooms.

Women's rights are everybody's rights. We know that society is better – more prosperous, more stable, more peaceful, more cohesive – when women's rights are respected, and when women are valued, empowered, and lead the way in our communities. That's why men have to be involved in fighting for women's rights … It can't just be women – if men don't speak up, it'll be much more difficult to make the fundamental changes we need. I'm proud to be a feminist, because making sure that everyone understands we all have a role in fighting for equality is the only way to move

I'm astonished by what you're argue that there is a scientific basis for women being less intelligent as men sounds like utter nonsense. While I would agree in cases that sometimes women are weaker than men, but I don't know why you could justify a pay gap because they are

There are many small – but symbolically significant – ways that women are excluded from public space. A culture of sexism is made up of very small issues, like how the default pedestrian crossings use a male figure, and large issues such as the rate of family violence facing women. We are a government working towards gender equality for all

3:20 represents the time that Australian women ostensibly start working for free in comparison to men if you take into account the gender pay gap.

After a discussion with people I know and trust I understand the way my remarks have been received by many.

In 2014, on a popular Facebook page called “Doctrine Man,” a serving Army National Guard officer wrote “let the butt hurt begin” in a thread discussing an article about one of us, Paula Broadwell, and, below it, posted a graphic image of a woman’s partially naked body impaled by a pitchfork.

Unconscious bias reinforces stereotypes and influences daily decisions and attitudes. The idea is to install traffic lights with female representation, as well as male representation, to help reduce unconscious bias. Some people have expressed a little scepticism wondering whether it's gesture politics rather than having any real substance. But these symbols are a practical and meaningful way to demonstrate that in fact 50 per cent of our population is female and should therefore also be represented at traffic

I think some of the reticence that might be coming across in not a huge chorus of defense of Kellyanne Conway in the face of these sexist comments is the feeling that she doesn't have our back.

The backlash is painful, but it coexists with progress as women activists manage – slowly – to bring about a change in attitudes. I often think of the day I was detained in Beijing.

We know that in some professions, standing in high heels for a period of an eight-hour shift is the norm. Wearing heels in this way often causes foot pain, bunions, skin lesions, lower limb pathology and other related discomforts for the heel-wearer. In fact, my own daughter suffered from a metatarsal fracture, which is more commonly affiliated with sports injuries, when she was forced to wear high heels in a former retail job. Quite literally adding insult to injury, she was denied any compensation or sick pay as she wasn't on the payroll for long
