How Phyllis Schlafly gave us Sarah Palin

(CNN)The death of anti-feminist activist Phyllis Schlafly on Monday brought commiserations from the GOP ticket. Donald Trump tweeted that she was "truly great." Mike Pence called her "the First Lady of the Conservative Movement." Pence wasn't exaggerating.

Throughout the 1970s, liberals and others castigated Schlafly as an outrageous contradiction in terms: a woman campaigning for the right to be told what to do by men. Schlafly used to love opening speeches by thanking her husband for letting her be there. Betty Friedan, the eminent feminist, called her an "Aunt Tom." But for thousands of conservative women, she defined what it meant to be a nonfeminist female in politics. For them, she was a liberator.

Schlafly enjoyed public prominence before she targeted feminism. A political science major, she ran for Congress (unsuccessfully) in 1952, and again in 1970, and became an outspoken anti-communist. In 1964, her booklet "A Choice Not an Echo" introduced Barry Goldwater to millions of readers.

Schlafly led protests against the ERA, including this one at the White House in 1977. The group, about 200 strong, was protesting then-first lady Rosalyn Carter&#39;s campaign for the ERA. Amendment supporters like Eleanor Smeal, president of the Feminist Majority Foundation, say their real enemy was never Schlafly, but big business and insurance companies.

But it was Congress' passage of the Equal Rights Amendment in 1972 that alerted her to, as she saw it, an attempt to redefine gender relations through law. The ability of her Stop ERA campaign to eventually halt state-by-state ratification indicated the public broadly agreed with her.

Was she an Aunt Tom, in the sense of selling out women's interests in deference to the patriarchy? She would have obviously said no. Schlafly argued that almost no laws existed at a state level that discriminated against women in the '70s, but that society recognized through culture and regulation many privileges that benefited her sex. Among them: the right to alimony or exemption from combat.

In Schlafly's view, absolute equality in nature was a myth and expecting men and women to live equally would, in fact, lead to the abuse of women. The strong would manipulate the weak. She also perceived a desire by feminists to actively promote abortion and easy divorce. The steep rise in abortions, as well as births outside marriage, that was getting underway in the '70s validated some of her analysis.

Of course victories in women's rights since the 1970s would seem to confirm President Obama's view that the arc of history bends toward liberalism -- but sometimes that narrative is surprisingly illiberal and intolerant of dissent. It can exclude the voices of conservatives who happen to be female, black or gay. Schlafly's own son came out in the 1990s and stood by his mother's work.

Feminism did a bad thing in the '70s. It contributed, often consciously, toward the idea that the only legitimate voice in women's politics was a liberal one and that all else was irrelevant or malignly intended. This risked convincing conservative women that politics was not for them, encouraging them -- ironically -- to stay at home.

Schlafly helped break that glass ceiling. By showing you could be an activist plus a wife, plus a mother, plus a conservative Christian, she inspired huge numbers of the women I've met in Republican politics. She was the Sarah Palin of her era.

Palin was nowhere near as intellectual, and had far less of an impact, but one unabashed good that came from her 2008 candidacy was that it tore up the rules for who could and could not run for the presidency. A hockey mom could do it, too. Schlafly and Palin paved the way for Carly Fiorina in 2016. And, someday, Fiorina will pave the way for a Republican nominee.

Unless one final Schlafly paradox gets in the way. Before she died, the First Lady of the Conservative Movement endorsed Trump. That makes sense: Schlafly was a paleoconservative who was worried about immigration. But Trump has turned out to be the most unchivalrous candidate in living memory, the very antithesis of Schlafly's ideal Christian standard. Has he put off other women from Republican politics? I certainly hope not.

Women now drink nearly as much alcohol as men, study finds

CNN)Women are now drinking nearly as much alcohol as men, according to a new study.

The report, published in the medical journal BMJ Open, analyzed 4 million people born between 1891 and 2001 and found that, historically, men were more likely to drink alcohol, and in amounts that would damage their health.

Now, women are catching up, especially in more recent generations.

Early in the 20th century, men were more than twice as likely to drink than women and more than three times as likely to develop alcohol-related problems. But today, the two genders are about equal: Men born since the 1980s are only 1.1 times more likely to drink than than their female counterparts and 1.3 times more likely to consume alcohol in a way that is considered problematic.

The results came from the analysis of 68 international studies published between 1980 and 2014. The researchers grouped people by birth date to look at levels of alcohol consumption. Researchers looked at any use, including quantities and frequency, problematic uses such as binge drinking or heavy drinking, and the prevalence of associated problems.

"There had been several reports of sex convergence regarding alcohol consumption, but nobody had confirmed that, which is why we decided to look over global studies published throughout the years to see if we could prove that there had been a shift," said researcher Katherine M. Keyes, an associate professor of epidemiology at Columbia University.

The study did not test why the gap is closing between men and women when it comes to alcohol, but researchers noted that changing traditional gender roles for women could be one explanation.

Long-term excessive alcohol consumption is linked to many health problems, including heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke, liver disease and digestive problems, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

"Understanding how its consumption has evolved is essential to develop effective available treatments," Keyes said.

More research needed globally
The majority of studies analyzed were conducted in North America and Europe, so the results might reflect a Western trend.

"We looked at all the available countries," Keyes said, "but more research is needed globally. More population studies are needed."

Spreading that message is important, she said.

"The essential thing to highlight is that there is treatment available for anyone suffering with alcohol abuse, both men and women. However, the focus here is women because there seems to be a stigma associated with women who drink and need help, as alcohol consumption is viewed as a male phenomenon," Keyes said.

"Gender differences are diminishing, so public health practitioners need to bring women into the fold when it comes to alcohol abuse."

For the researchers, the message is clear: Alcohol use and alcohol use disorders cannot continue to be viewed as phenomenon only among men.
"If (women) are having problem, they need to reach out," Keyes said. "They are not alone."

How Trump awakened a feminist revolution in America

CNN) — There's something of a revolution spreading across social media in the United States and beyond.

You can see it in the sharp reaction after Newt Gingrich clashed with Fox News' Megyn Kelly, accusing her of being "fascinated with sex" when she tried to ask him about women who accuse Donald Trump of grabbing them and kissing them against their will.

You can see it in the curious ways in which women changed their social media profiles to include "nasty woman" after Donald Trump used the term to critique Hillary Clinton, and you can see it in the conversations in Facebook pages, where women are newly and openly venting about their encounters with sexism.

You can also see it in the polls and in the increasing likelihood that Hillary Clinton will win the presidential election, propelled by a growing margin of support from women voters.

A feminist revolution? It's all rather startling, because it wasn't very long ago that young women were explaining why they had lost interest in feminism. During the primaries, with Clinton running to make history as the first female president of the United States, a new generation of women voters were indeed excited -- but not about Clinton. Millennials, including women, were lining up behind Bernie Sanders, yet another white man.

Feminism had gone out of style. A young writer explained that feminism is "made up of outdated issues," adding, "we already have everything [feminism] is fighting for."

But just a few months later, all of that is ancient history. What happened? Donald Trump.

Trump's rise in the political arena made it jarringly clear that women still face barriers bolted into society's foundations. Sure, women can get jobs in every field, study in every university, earn good salaries and make life choices that would have seemed inconceivable barely a generation ago.

But the Republican candidate for president has cast a blinding neon light on the everyday indignities of pervasive sexism that gnaw and degrade and look impossible to fight without seeming to make a mountain of what some might view as a molehill.

With his incessant judging of women by their attractiveness and his boasts about grabbing women between their legs and kissing them without their consent, Trump has reinvigorated feminism by reminding everyone, women especially, of the small irritations and the serious violations.

How many women have been told they should smile more? Enough that a spoof video ad "Smyle, for women, the first daily medication that helps you smile," has drawn millions of views and thousands of comments from women recounting stories of bosses telling them they must smile more.

And when Canadian writer Kelly Oxford went on Twitter with "Tweet me your first assaults... I'll go first" and told of being grabbed, as Trump put it, "by the ****," when she was 12, the response was overwhelming. Tens of thousands of women around the world told their stories of being assaulted.

Trump's attitude toward women, his words alone, prompted the most powerful speech of the entire campaign. Michelle Obama articulated the experience of women -- in the US and around the world -- who confront "The disrespect of our ambitions and our intellect..."

"It hurts," she noted, describing a feeling most men could not grasp. "It's like that sinking feeling you get," she said, "when you're walking down the street... and some guy yells vulgar words about your body. Or when you see that guy at work that stands just a little too close, stares a little too long, and makes you feel uncomfortable in your own skin."

Men like Trump and his surrogate, Gingrich, like to have it both ways; stretching the limits of what's allowed for them, and then accusing women of being "fascinated with sex" when they complain about it. Not surprisingly, those words came from Gingrich, a man who is resplendent in his hypocrisy, a cheater, who demanded that Kelly use the words "sexual predator" to refer to Bill Clinton, the president he lambasted in the 1990s for his extramarital activities, at the precise time when he, too, was having an affair.

The good news is that young women who thought the war for equality was won have now become acutely aware how far we have to go. Better yet, they have no intention of abandoning the campaign.

Hillary Clinton explained feminism clearly, saying it has nothing to do, contrary to rumor, with disliking men. Feminists, she said, believe that "women have the same rights as men, politically, culturally, economically."

That means not being judged primarily as objects of physical attraction, and not being subjected to different standards, such as the one that rejects strong women as overly aggressive and unfeminine.

If Trump wanted to make history, perhaps he can take comfort in the wave of feminism he unwittingly unleashed across the world. Newspapers in Argentina are reporting how women are raising their voices and mobilizing against Trump.

And in Russia, that band of performance artists **** Riot released a new video in reaction to Trump. Their trademark provocative words have lost some of their edge since Trump's use of the word in the Access Hollywood video. The lyrics go, "Don't play stupid, don't play dumb, ****'s where you're really from."

Clearly, there is room in this new feminist campaign for everyone's style, from Michelle Obama to **** Riot to mockery of the annoying requirement that women maintain a teenager's figure and smile incessantly.

Trump has not only breathed new life, new awareness into the demands for equal treatment for women everywhere, but in the process, he sealed his own fate. Pollsters say millennials are now solidly behind Hillary Clinton, and women's support may well make her president of the United States.

The Senate now has more women than ever before

The newly elected Senate is on track to have more women than ever before.

The body will have at least 21 women senators in 2017 — an increase from the 20 women in the current Senate. Newly elected women to the Senate include Illinois Senator-elect Tammy Duckworth and Nevada Senator-elect Catherine Cortez Masto, who is also the first Latina to serve in the Senate.

More women in the Senate makes the body more representative of America. While we’re still far from gender parity — men still outnumber women four to one in Congress — we’re taking more steps in that direction.

There is evidence that more women in the Senate will change what the body talks about and how it governs. Women legislators, for example, are more likely to introduce legislation that specifically benefits women. They’re better at bringing funding back to their home districts. And, to put it bluntly, they just get more **** done: A female legislator, on average, passed twice as many bills as a male legislator in one recent session of Congress.

Women bring a different background to Congress. They face different obstacles to success than their male colleagues — and sometimes more obstacles to winning office. That shapes how they govern and what issues they choose to focus their time on.

Trump nominates two prominent GOP women: DeVos as education secretary, Haley as U.N. ambassador

President-elect Donald Trump on Wednesday selected two prominent Republican women for Cabinet-level positions, adding diversity to an inner circle that was already coming under fire for being composed mostly of white men.

In a potentially controversial choice, Trump intends to nominate billionaire philanthropist Betsy DeVos for education secretary, people familiar with the selection said, turning to a conservative activist who has forcefully pushed for private school voucher programs. Her nomination is expected to face strong opposition from public school advocates, who oppose her efforts to funnel taxpayer dollars from public to private and religious schools.

Hours earlier, Trump had announced that he will fill the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations slot with South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, a rising Republican star and daughter of Indian immigrants who has virtually no foreign policy experience.

Haley’s nomination had marked Trump’s first female appointment to a Cabinet-level post after his initial selections, such as Attorney General nominee Jeff Sessions and incoming national security adviser Michael Flynn, had been older white men.

Though Trump was elected with strong support from white working class voters, people familiar with the president-elect’s thinking said he wanted to announce both women’s appointments before Thanksgiving to show his cabinet will be diverse. The decision to nominate DeVos, who met with Trump last weekend, was made in the past 48 hours, the people said. They added that DeVos benefited from strong support in the conservative movement and among conservative political donors.

But DeVos immediately drew scathing opposition from the National Education Association, the nation’s largest teacher’s union. “By nominating Betsy DeVos, the Trump administration has demonstrated just how out of touch it is with what works best for students, parents, educators and communities,’’ NEA President Lily Eskelsen García said in a statement. “She has consistently pushed a corporate agenda to privatize, de-professionalize and impose cookie-cutter solutions to public education.’’

While Trump’s transition team has not commented publicly, DeVos tweeted that she is “honored to work with the President-elect on his vision to make American education great again. The status quo in ed is not acceptable.”

Haley, a former Trump critic, is generally considered a mainstream Republican, with views on military and national security matters that fall within the GOP’s hawkish mainstream.

“Governor Haley has a proven track record of bringing people together regardless of background or party affiliation to move critical policies forward for the betterment of her state and our country,” Trump said in a statement. “She will be a great leader representing us on the world stage.”

Haley, who has accepted the offer, said she is “honored that the President-elect has asked me to join his team and serve the country we love.’’

Her words represented a sharp departure from the campaign, during which she initially backed Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) for the GOP nomination and lambasted Trump as “everything a governor doesn’t want in a president.”

Trump is considering another prominent former rival and mainstream Republican, 2012 GOP nominee Mitt Romney, for secretary of state, though some Trump advisers are reportedly pushing back against that and backing other candidates, such as former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani.

Haley’s selection, also seen as an effort to reach out to establishment Republicans unsettled by Trump’s surprise victory, came amid indications that he was slowing down transition planning to spend Thanksgiving with his family. The president-elect flew Tuesday night to Mar-a-Lago, his private club in Palm Beach, where he will spend the holiday and weekend.

Trump aides declined to provide details of his schedule over the next few days, saying in a conference call that Trump’s family prefers keeping the holiday private. The aides said Trump planned to announce another Cabinet-level nominee later Wednesday but would not elaborate.

One possibility is another former Trump rival, Ben Carson, who could be named secretary of housing and urban development. Carson tweeted Wednesday that “an announcement is forthcoming about my role in helping to make America great again,’’ though he declined to be more specific. Trump had tweeted Tuesday that he is “seriously considering” Carson for the post.

Carson, who ran against Trump for the Republican nomination before backing him, told Fox News: “It certainly is something that has been a long-term interest of mine, and I’ll be thinking and praying about it seriously over the holiday.”

Haley, 44, who is serving her second term, has worked on trade and labor issues and traveled abroad as governor, including to Europe. She is considered a novice in international affairs, but her home state senator, Lindsey O. Graham (R-S.C.), appeared to be trying to buck up her foreign policy bona fides in a statement praising Haley on Wednesday.

“As Governor of South Carolina she has recruited and dealt with some of the largest international business firms in the world. Her husband was a member of the South Carolina National Guard who served a tour of duty in Afghanistan,” Graham said. “Governor Haley and her family fully understand what is at stake in the war against radical Islam. I know she will be a valuable ally to President-elect Trump.”

Haley, who met with Trump Thursday at Manhattan’s Trump Tower, grew up in a small South Carolina town and was elected governor in 2010 as a tea party reformer. But she has since been viewed as part of the GOP establishment.

Her breakout moment on the national stage came with her widely praised handling of last year’s slaying of a prominent minister and eight parishioners at a historic African American church in Charleston. Haley choked back tears at a news conference, saying the “heart and soul of South Carolina was broken.’’

She was at the forefront of the subsequent debate over whether the Confederate flag should still fly on statehouse grounds, insisting that the legislature remove it. After the flag came down, she told The Washington Post that she has two teenage children and that “I just couldn’t look them in the face and keep that flag up.”

If confirmed, Haley would be replaced by South Carolina Lt. Gov. Henry McMaster, a top Trump ally. His ascension is seen inside of Trump’s inner circle as a welcome consequence of her departure, the person said — a way to promote them both.

During the campaign, Haley was critical of some of Trump’s proposals, such as his temporary ban on Muslims’ entry to the U.S.

When she gave the GOP response to President Obama’s State of the Union address this year, Haley criticized the “angriest voices” within national politics and their “siren call” to voters, a line widely seen as a not-so-subtle shot at Trump’s campaign.

But when she visited Trump last week, Haley told reporters that she never disliked Trump despite her past comments.

“He was a friend and supporter before he ran for president, and was kind to me then. But when I see something I am uncomfortable with, I say it,” she said. “When we met, it was friends who had known each other before.”

Marissa Mayer to resign from Yahoo board after sale

Marissa Mayer will step down from Yahoo's board of directors if its sale to Verizon goes through, according to a company filing on Monday.

The Yahoo CEO's pending resignation from the board is part of a broader restructuring. After completing the $4.8 billion sale of its core Internet assets to Verizon (VZ, Tech30), what remains of Yahoo (YHOO, Tech30) will effectively be converted into an investment company for its Alibaba (BABA, Tech30) holdings.

Fittingly, that company will be renamed Altaba, according to the filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Yahoo, wait sorry, we mean Altaba (this takes some getting used to), will then shrink its board to five directors. Yahoo cofounder David Filo and chairman Maynard Webb also intend to step down from the board.

Yahoo says in the filing that none of the board members are resigning "due to any disagreement with the Company" over "operations, policies or practices."

Related: Why Marissa Mayer couldn't save Yahoo

Mayer remains Yahoo's CEO and has repeatedly stated her intention to stay with the company at least through the transition period with Verizon.

"For me personally, I'm planning to stay," Mayer wrote in a Tumblr post at the time of the acquisition. "I love Yahoo, and I believe in all of you. It's important to me to see Yahoo into its next chapter."

However, all of this assumes the Verizon deal actually goes through, which remains an open question.

Since announcing the deal to sell itself last July, Yahoo has suffered two massive security breaches impacting more than one billion user accounts. Verizon is rumored to be rethinking the price of the deal and possibly scrapping it altogether.

Verizon execs have said publicly they continue to investigate the full financial impact of the Yahoo breach.

"Unfortunately, I can't sit here today and say with confidence one way or the other because we still don't know," Marni Walden, an executive VP at Verizon, said at an investor conference this month.

Incredible Irony Revealed That ‘Day Without A Woman’ March Financed By Puppet Master George Soros
A report released Tuesday by the conservative Media Research Center found Mr. Soros and his Open Society Foundations contributed $246 million between 2010 and 2014 to 100 of the 544 groups listed as partners of the Women’s March.

3/9/17

The controlling power behind the Women’s March on Washington and a Day Without a Woman is a rich man: liberal billionaire George Soros.

EDITOR’S NOTE: How incredibly funny is it, both ironically and humorously, that a march in Washington to celebrate women and promote women was created and financed by perhaps the most evil MAN on the planet, New World Order puppet master George Soros? All you liberal ladies who marched yesterday actually did the bidding of an evil man who is trying to destroy the United States of America. Y’all ain’t too smart, are ya? Nope….

A report released Tuesday by the conservative Media Research Center found Mr. Soros and his Open Society Foundations contributed $246 million between 2010 and 2014 to 100 of the 544 groups listed as partners of the Women’s March.

The Women’s March is the main U.S. organizer of the Wednesday worldwide general strike called a Day Without a Woman, held on International Women’s Day, which encourages women to skip work, wear red and forego shopping.

“While many celebrity voices were on stage on Jan. 21, highlighting what had become a massive, anti-Trump event, there was another influential voice not heard that day. It belonged to one man. George Soros,” said the MRC report.

    “Those donations represent just a fragment of Soros’ massive global influence,” the Media Research Center said on its website. “His Open Society Foundations have given away more than $13 billion to push his globalist, anti-American views.”

Among the groups partnering with the Women’s March that received funding directly from Mr. Soros include the Center for Reproductive Rights, MoveOn.org, and the Human Rights Campaign.

The top recipient of Soros-related largesse were the ACLU, which received $37 million; Human Rights Watch at $32 million, and Planned Parenthood, a premier partner of the Women’s March, which accepted in part through its affiliates $21 million from Soros-funded organizations, said the report. source

Liberals launch feminist-focused foreign aid policy
Minister Marie-Claude Bibeau says plan will position Canada as gender equality leader

The Liberal government is launching an international assistance policy that aims to position Canada as a gender equality leader on the world stage.

The plan, called the Feminist International Assistance Policy, will invest $150 million over five years to help local organizations in developing countries that are working to promote women's rights. The money is part of the existing budget.

By 2021-22, at least 80 per cent of Canada's international assistance will target the advancement of gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls.

Bibeau said the government's vision is to reduce global poverty through the lens of measures that empower women and girls.

"We will not break the back of poverty if we leave half of humanity at the sidelines," she said during a news conference in Ottawa. "We will not break the vicious cycle of poverty and violence without stepping up efforts to give women and girls a voice, and the opportunities to choose their own future and fully contribute to their community."
