When a woman owns a gun, that gun is far more likely to be used against her. So you’d be well-advised to ignore stuff like this.
As of today, you will have worked a sufficient amount of time to earn the same amount of money that your male colleagues earned as of Dec. 31.
Go out and celebrate as you see fit.
Father of three daughters Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, opposes two bills that would encourage women to go into science because, he says…
“Washington is always a step behind…we want to take time from our $19 trillion in debt to demand that the National Science Foundation discriminate based on gender.”
Yow. Read those bills again, Rep. Gohmert. And then go talk to your colleague Rep. Elizabeth Esty, a Connecticut Democrat who’s pushing the bill. And then read this. And this. And know that we are praying for you.

But check out this Pew Research Center report (and thanks, Leftover, for the link). There’s a lot of interesting stuff in there, but I was drawn to this:
…this study finds that, But the study also reveals a more complex relationship between religion and gender than has been commonly assumed. While women generally are more religious, men display higher levels of religious commitment in some countries and religious groups. And in other contexts, there are few, if any, discernable gender differences in religion.
It’s a lot of stuff, but it is fascinating, particularly Chapter 7, from which the graph above was taken.
Read this new study. It’s chilling.

She wrote in Saturday’s New York Times: “My Undiplomatic Moment.” Her piece included:
I absolutely believe what I said, that women should help one another, but this was the wrong context and the wrong time to use that line. I did not mean to argue that women should support a particular candidate based solely on gender. But I understand that I came across as condemning those who disagree with my political preferences. If heaven were open only to those who agreed on politics, I imagine it would be largely unoccupied.
