A new book by reporters Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly reveals just how inadequate the FBI investigation into allegations of sexual assault against Brett Kavanaugh was—and what the Republicans hoped to bury.
A new national survey reveals that the Kavanaugh hearings made half of voters think about the lack of female representation in politics and shifted their perceptions of women as political leaders.
America is not yet a society of cynics. Its citizens have not yet given up hope in their country. An overwhelming majority of Americans actually do believe there is a distinction between facts and fiction, truth and lies. They do not want to live in a polarized society, divided against themselves. And many of them are women.
Pop duo Gracie and Rachel didn’t have plans to release any new work this year while they fine-tuned their upcoming second album—but that changed when they woke up early last month to watch Dr. Christine Blasey Ford testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee.
When developed countries politicize the female body, those of us in developing countries feel the effects.
“We will be grateful forever to you, Dr. Ford. You’ll see our gratitude in our straightened spines. You’ll see it when we march, when we walk out, when we show up. You’ll see it in the voting lines that go on forever. You’ll see it when you read our names on ballots. You’ll hear it in our reawakened voices. You’ll feel it in our strengthened siblinghood.”

Brett Kavanaugh’s defensiveness, anger and entitlement in advance of his confirmation to the Supreme Court this weekend presented a salient question.
Survivors and feminist leaders, lawmakers and celebrities are calling on all of us to keep fighting in the wake of Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation—and to vow to remember in November.
Regardless of how this fight ends, feminists have made clear that they’re not going silently into the night. Activists around the country will continue to protest Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination tonight and tomorrow.
