How the Internet and Teen Bloggers Are Shaping the Women's Movement for the Better

[Editor’s note: Some of us older feminists--ok me--sometimes find this whole social media world foreign and even impersonal. But one of my favorite blogs is the Fbomb founded by teen Julie Zeilinger. Not only has it become a thriving space for young feminist bloggers, but it has also changed how feminists are organizing and finding each other. ...more

Is Former CNN Anchor Campbell Brown Biased Against Obama Because of Her Husband?

[Editor's note: Former CNN anchor Campbell Brown took to the New York Times yesterday to critique President Obama’s speech last week to the women graduates of Barnard. In Brown’s view, the president was pandering and should have focused more on the awful economy and the fact that most of them are not even going to get jobs. Instead, he was so “condescending” and “grating”! ...more

'Cool' and Other Things That Could Bring Obama Down

Four years ago, Barack Obama won the presidential election amid a climate of economic strife.Today, the economy remains a top priority for most Americans, but not like before. People aren’t as afraid of a falling standard of living. They’ve settled into the poor economy, they’ve seen that we will survive, and perhaps most importantly, they’re not coming off the heels of a failed Republican presidency.
