In this age of being willing to examine how women are (badly) treated in Hollywood, perhaps we’ll finally get that town to admit what happened that night. I had the pleasure of meeting her briefly, at a party, a few weeks before her death. She was lovely and well liked by everyone. Her husband, not so much. Via Associated Press/NYT. New witnesses have emerged in the 1981 drowning of the actress Natalie Wood, prompting investigators to deem it a “suspicious death” and name Robert Wagner, her former husband, a “person of interest,” Los Angeles County sheriff’s officials said on Thursday. For nearly four decades, mystery and speculation have swirled around the death of Ms. Wood, who was nominated for three...

It’s one thing to make a mistake or use a word social justice warriors don’t like, and quite another to consider and then articulate, in public no less, that you’d be fine with someone being secxually assaulted because you disagree with their politics and policy actions. Especially when you’re a lawyer at a firm that helps “injured victims nationwide.” Yeah, got it. Via Washington Times. A lawyer that sparked outrage after tweeting that he’d be “OK” with Education Secretary Betsy DeVos being sexually assaulted has resigned from his Texas law firm. Robert Ranco, a partner at the Carlson Law Firm who disagreed with the Trump administration’s plan to reform how accusations of sexual assault are adjudicated on campus, wrote in...

And this is the scum that Hillary has enabled most of her adult life. Another reason to not vote for the wife of Monica’s ex-boyfriend. Via the Daily Mail. Bill Clinton once tried to seduce Jacqueline Kennedy at her New York apartment despite the 17-year age gap. The former President ‘almost forcibly’ tried to have sex with the former First Lady even though she protested, a new book claims in an outlandish account of the encounter. Mrs Kennedy, who was in her 60s at the time, said that she and Mr Clinton nearly got into a ‘wrestling match’ before she was able to throw him off… In Bill and Hillary: So This Is That Thing Called Love, authors Darwin Porter...

Let’s see: In Iran, women are subject to public execution by stoning after being convicted for ‘adultery.’ Men can marry non-Islamic women, but women cannot marry non-Islamic men. A woman can get a divorce only under extreme conditions; a man can divorce a wife without cause. There are no laws against domestic abuse. A man’s son inherits twice as much as his daughter. Yes, Iran sounds like a perfect choice: Via CNS: UN Gives Iran Leadership Post in Agency for ‘Gender Equality and Empowerment of Women’ With little fanfare, a U.N. body has given Iran seats on several entities, including one dealing with women’s empowerment, another with children, a third with narcotics and a fourth with crime prevention and criminal...

Katie Nolan of FOX Sports talks about her love of football and reconciling her values with the football commissioner’s handling of the current situation. How do you support a commissioner that has to SEE a video of a man punching a woman in the face to realize that it is unacceptable? A boycott of the league is not practical and turning matters over to the NCAA whose ‘governing body makes Roger Goodell look like Mother Teresa’ is also not the answer. Nolan regrets an early opportunity to question Goodell about why he would not consider a larger suspension of Rice to further the NFL’s appeal to the untapped market of female fans and let them know that the NFL actually...

A very brave young woman standing up against the horrors of sharia law and the inequities she sees in her Muslim religion. Raised in New York, Omnia Hegazy is trying to draw attention to issues in her homeland of Egypt. As Tammy has mentioned quite often – it will take the Women of the Middle East to change the backward, caveman mentality. From FoxNews: Pop singer Omnia Hegazyisn’t one to keep quiet about inequities she sees in her Muslim religion. The young artist is working to draw attention to issues in her homeland of Egypt that she says that many would rather ignore, while treading a fine line between critiquing her community and defending it. The New York-raised recording...
Amid Backlash, Petition Calls On CNN To Apologize On Air For ‘Sympathizing’ With Steubenville Rapistsby Tammy on March 18, 2013
On CNN, Candy Crowley’s and Poppy Harlow’s (Poppy Harlow?) on-air commentary about the convicted rapists was indeed bizarre and they’re being called out for it pretty much by everyone. Now there’s a petition calling for an apology. Not a bad idea, but even more importantly I hope people realize this is a window into what the death of right and wrong looks like, and reveals how craven some in the liberal media really are. Via Mediaite. On Sunday, the Steubenville rape trial concluded with the judge finding two high school football players — Trent Mays, 17, and Ma’lik Richmond, 16 — guilty of raping a 16-year-old girl. The case itself has received a widespread coverage, but after the verdict was...
