Clear your plans, set your DVRs and pop some popcorn. Hillary’s on "The Daily Show" tonight. Airing at 11 pm EST, Clinton and Jon Stewart will discuss her new book, Hard Choices, and hopefully we’ll catch some hints about a 2016 Presidential run (fingers crossed!!!).
It’s super strategic that Clinton is appearing on Stewart’s Emmy award-winning show; according to a study done by the Brookings Institution, it is one of the most ... Read More

Remember Fox New’s Jesse Watters making that wholly unacceptable comment about “Beyoncé voters” (aka single women). If not, here’s a video to refresh your memory: Yeah, you remember now. If there are two things you should never do as a news personality, they are A.) imply that single women (who control the vote you’re so worried about) are DEPENDENT on men B.) bring our girl Beyoncé ...

Yesterday morning, I woke up at 3AM. I got ready as quickly as possible, slipped into the perfect pantsuit, and walked out my door by 4AM. I hailed a cab, got out at the Barnes and Noble in Union Square, and I sat in line (and sat in line, and sat in line, and sat in line). For the following seven hours, I was ushered through various lines and did a great deal of sitting, standing, chatting, and wishing I had chosen footwear other than kitten heels. But at the end ...

Daughter of former presidential family, Chelsea Clinton, announced her first pregnancy yesterday. The news spurred absurd accusations about how "the baby" has or will affect the potential Clinton administration. Like vultures, conservatives have bombarded the internet claiming that Chelsea's baby could not only interfere with Hillary Clinton's prospective campaign, but that it also repositions the Clinton's pro-choice stance on abortion.
USA Today catalyzed a wave ... Read More

If there is one thing of which Hillary Clinton has convinced me, it’s that she seriously gives a shit about making women’s voices heard. She is constantly making strides towards equality, but tomorrow she will specifically zero in on the voices of young women around the globe. Thanks to the Clinton Foundation, a new lecture series has been born to give Clinton and young women the opportunity to connect and discuss. Girls: A No Ceiling Conversation ... Read More

All of my wildest dreams just came true. Hillary Clinton and Pussy Riot have united and will now take the world by storm.
Okay, maybe they aren’t plotting world domination, but at least they have met and are now definitely friends. The controversial Russian pop duo Pussy Riot posed with Clinton backstage at Tina Brown’s Women in the World Summit last week, and it renewed my faith in humanity.
Nadezhda Tolokonnikova and Maria Alyokhina of ... Read More

There are more than 124 women who will be taking the stage this weekend at the "Women in the World: Stories + Solutions" summit to speak about their stories, accomplishments, and missions for change. One of the attendees was the magnificent Hillary Rodham Clinton, who got the ball rolling with a critique of a media-driven double standard for women.
“The double standard is alive and well," Clinton notes, "and I think in many respects the media is the ... Read More

The children, in engaging with figures who have achieved great acts of courage and activism, work to challenge prejudices about both race and gender.
Seen here as those ... Read More

Herstory (n): a fraught subject and a sad, compelling legacy — bound up as it is in, you know, a culture of violence and disenfranchisement. But in honor of Women's History Month, let's take a flip-book look across countries, decades and ideas at some ladies (those famous, recognized, and not-so-much) who helped shape the way we think, talk, move, dress, and exist. Obviously, this list is abridged: ten billion other photos wouldn't ... Read More
Time Magazine recently released a cover story titled “Can Anyone Stop Hillary?” Its cover features the image of a female foot with a tiny man hanging from to the bottom of her shoe. Yes, you guessed it: the leg represents Hillary Clinton, and the dangling chewing gum-like figure is any male candidate who dares run against her in the upcoming presidential election.
The minimalist image has inspired mixed reviews from Slate’s Amanda ... Read More
