Today is women’s equality day in America, which celebrates the success of suffragettes in securing votes for women in 1920. But equality at the ballot box is not matched by parity in pay. Women in New York earn 87.6 cents for every dollar earned by a man—the nation’s smallest gap. Those in Louisiana make just 66.7 cents—the nation’s largest. On average, female workers take home only about 78% of what male ones do: they wind up in poorly-paid service professions more often; are less likely to wor

Where is the buzz about the fact that sexual violence in conflict continues to be accepted as "collateral damage" in all forms of conflict all over the world? When will the stigma be removed from victims and placed onto their perpetrators?
The laws prohibiting or regulating toplessness are stupidly inconsistent throughout America. The hot and annoying summer has long been cause for contemplation of a life without clothing, particularly in the Big "Garbage" Apple, where it is especially hot and annoying and there exists a long tradition of writing May-August articles titled, basically, "Yes, It's Legal to Go Topless in New York," each beginning with a discussion of how hot and annoying it is in the Big Apple. During the hot and annoying summer of 1992, six years after the Rochester Seven were arrested for being topless in public, their case made it to the New York Supreme Court, which ruled that toplessness should be legalized in the state. A fun footnote to the case reads, "Interestingly, expert testimony at appellants' trial suggested that the enforced concealment of women's breasts reinforces cultural obsession with them, contributes toward unhealthy attitudes about breasts by both sexes and even discourages women from breastfeeding their children."
THE headline above is, of course, a provocation. Misogyny is a plague, and a particularly virulent one. It should be chased out of polite society. But there is one, purely lexical reason to stick up for “misogyny”: the word’s meaning is changing, becoming a simple synonym for “sexism”. It is better kept distinct.
The original meaning is clear enough: “misogyny” comes from two Greek roots , misein, to hate, and gyne, woman. “Misanthropy” is a close cousin, meaning hatred of humankind. (As in many other languages, including English, anthropos in Greek means both a male and “humankind”, which is itself sexist. There is also misandry, hatred of males specifically, but this word is newer and rarer.)
On January 27, 1991, at a record-release party for the rap duo Bytches With Problems in Hollywood, producer/rapper/then-N.W.A. member Dr. Dre brutally attacked Dee Barnes, the host of a well-known Fox show about hip-hop called Pump It Up! Dre was reportedly angry about a Pump It Up! segment hosted by Barnes that aired in November 1990.
